  1. Hello Kilo,
    It’s been too long. Just wanted to let you all know a little something I’ve noticed since I’ve been gone learning to swim- normal gyms suck. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad that people are doing something. Especially since obesity has surpassed starvation in this crazy world of ours. After CrossFitting for almost 6 years I forgot what makes it great. When I go to the gym (not The Gym) now I swipe my card, go do my own thing, nobody attempts to help me get better. Nobody cheers me on. Nobody looks for competition. They just go in and do whatever they want and then go home. It sucks. If you’ve forgotten what you left let me tell you that you don’t know what you’re missing ’til it’s gone. Hopefully I can get my lap swum in the next month so I can get back. And thank your coach for making it hard and your community for not letting you quit even when you want them to shut up because it’s not going to happen somewhere else. That is all. Miss ya.

  2. We miss you too SAM!
    BS: 110

    Thanks coaches for pushing us, cause usually its not the physical stuff that makes us want to quit or not go 100%. Thanks for making us mentally tough!

  3. BS: I have no idea where I started, but I ended up at 39k. I will keep track of the build next time 😉

    WOD: 4 rounds + 10 hammers and 1 med ball clean.

    The best thing about being new — everyday is a PR day 🙂 Happy Monday all!
