-Yes

5.What is your favorite part about the Open?

7.  Anything else you want to mention?

-I would just say that the open can be fun for everyone as long as they don’t take it too serious. I realized I was at fault for this in the last few workouts and it took some of the fun out of it. Another thing I would mention is that if you have any serious/nagging injuries, the open might not be the best thing for you, especially if you are super competitive. Don’t risk getting hurt even more just to beat someone else’s score.
