Year two of the Age Group Quarterfinals is all said and done, and while the dust is still settling on the leaderboard, athletes across nine age divisions will be eagerly waiting to see if they have the distinction of moving on to Semifinals. 

Last season I had the opportunity to compete in the inaugural Quarterfinal round, and chronicled my experiences as a middle of the road athlete getting a taste of competition beyond the Open.

In 2022 I’ve been fortunate to qualify for the Quarterfinals yet again, so I’ll be documenting my experience in year two, and comparing the end result to 2021 for the purposes of giving a first hand look the Age Group Quarterfinal through the eyes of a 36 year-old guy training one time a day taking the regular classes at my gym.

It’s worth noting that my pre-workout thoughts and strategies were penned shortly after the workouts were announced and prior to tackling any of them on Thursday afternoon. After completing each test I then circled back with my post-workout clarity. For this go-round I’ll be listing my breakdowns in the order that I performed them.
