July has always been a busy month for the world of sports and this year is no different! The showcase of amazing athletes in sports around the world is well underway!
We all were caught up in the best of teams in mens soccer during the World Cup and the very best of individuals in mens and womens tennis showcased themselves at the notorious Wimbledon. Both events finished up last week and while we were still reeling from the winnings of these two major events, the best men in cycling kick off the Tour de France. Every year that I watch the Tour de France, I am amazed at the endurance and incredible strength that these athletes have. They train every day of the year for this incredible 21 day opportunity to work as a team proving they are the best. In the middle of the tour, the mens and womens Rugby World Cup as well as some of the best mens golfers in the world play in The Open Championship. Both of these events will culminate this weekend and again, we will be amazed by these athletes and the dedication they put in day in and day out to be the best in their respective sports.
In our very own sport, The 2018 CrossFit Games are just around the corner! On August 1st, CrossFits best athletes from all around the world, will be competing to be the fittest person on earth. What I have always loved about CrossFit is that everyday people can do the workouts that our CrossFit Games athletes are doing. It has always been about functional and adaptable fitness. Watch the leaders in our sport and get inspired to work hard to make yourself a better and more healthy individual, day in and day out. While we may not ever be professional, we can work hard to be the best version of ourselves physically. Push yourself each day of the year and feel proud of yourself for getting out there and making good things happen for the one who matters most, you!

12 cups of zucchini and/or squash spiraled noodles
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons chile-garlic sauce
1 teaspoon peanut oil plus ¼ cup, divided
4 large eggs, beaten
1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
6 scallions, sliced in 1-inch pieces
3 large cloves garlic, minced
3 cups bean sprouts
¼ cup roasted peanuts, chopped (optional)
¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
4 lime wedges (optional)
Combine vinegar, fish sauce, honey and chile-garlic sauce in a small bowl. Place near the stove.
Set a 14-inch flat-bottom carbon-steel wok or large skillet over high heat until hot. Swirl in 1 teaspoon oil. Add eggs and cook, without stirring, until set, 30 to 40 seconds. Flip over and cook until set on the other side, about 30 seconds more. Transfer to a plate.
Swirl the remaining ¼ cup oil into the wok (or pan). Add the squash noodles, bell pepper, scallions and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Add bean sprouts and the reserved sauce and toss until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.
Slice or chop the egg. Serve the noodles topped with the egg and garnished with peanuts, cilantro and lime wedges, if desired.
