“It was only one night but it felt like a lifetime”
Remember sleepovers at the Boys and Girls club? When you would stay up all night, play basketball and watch movies in the gymnasium. This was absolutely nothing like that. The name “HELL NIGHT” implying that we would be going through hell for one night was an understatement. After the check in and roll call was complete each athlete was given a Color, a number, a city and a name (all hall of fame basketball players) throughout the evening they were tested on anyone of these and if they chose wrong they would be given a penalty. I double checked the emergency contact list written on the dry erase board to surprisingly see my name and phone # for 4 different athletes. Looking back on it I probably should have had my own. We started with 12 total, 6 from CrossFit Scottsdale and 6 from CrossFit Preferred led by former NFL tight end Derek Price. My brother 11 year Air Force veteran Jade Mcleod flew in from Sacramento to lead the all-nighter and students Tony, Keith and Jason made the journey complete by giving encouragement and assisting with each separate exercise. Athletes included two 17 year old, four U.S contracted Cadettes, 1 women YAAAY Klubo!!!, 3 SEALFIT graduates and a couple CEO’s.
