2017 was a fun year for work, health and travel. Here’s what I got up to.

Launched a new (partial) Rhino Africa website on a new CMS and started moving content from the old to the new.

Looking ridic but feeling great

Started taking Crossfit more seriously (training 3+ times per week) and participated in my first Crossfit Open.

Coming in at 102020 is always humbling #HWPO

Competed in my first scaled Crossfit comp. Our team made it to the final and then suffered a humbling defeat. Also cleaned 80kg for the first time.

Crossfit is fun

Competed in my first beer run at Crossfit Hout Bay: 4x400m and down a beer after each run.

Trained really hard for the next scaled competition and came 2nd. Had a great time here in our team of four, with a 190kg deadlift PB and finally doing 100 double-unders unbroken.
