Welcome back to The Morning After, the official blog post of Friday Night Lights!

Congratulations on completing Friday Night Lights! It was inspiring to see everyone pushing their limits, setting PRs, cheering on athletes, and fully embracing the CrossFit community. Committing to five Fridays of boarder line torture isn’t easy, but you guys accepted the challenge like champs. To be perfectly honest, while I was very excited for The Open season I wasn’t completely enthusiastic to sacrifice five Fridays in a row. However, I’m not sure what I’m going to do on Friday nights now. Seriously, what do normal people do on Fridays? I’m really sad that FNL is over, but I am beyond thankful for the friendships, memories, and ridiculous faces made at FNL!

Here is the final recap of Friday Night Lights!

Week 5 MVP
Congratulations to our Week 5 MPV, Morgan. She rocked through the thrusters and double-unders like it was her job! Below is a short interview with Week 5’s MVP:

Why are you did you do The Open?
I did the open to challenge myself to see what I am capable of doing! I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did!

What’s your favorite part of CrossFit Icehouse?
Favorite part about Icehouse is seeing people invest in your time and helping you through your weaknesses, but also acknowledging your strength. Jake had been my biggest motivation and if it was not for him being my judge for 17.5 I would’ve given up so easily.

What’s your favorite hobby?
My favorite hobby is photography and lifting weight. Close tie for first.

What’s a fun fact about yourself?
Fun fact about me is that I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps! Which means less than 2 months left at Icehouse
