11. What is your favorite WOD you have done so far? I enjoy them all but the W.O.D from 1.19.18 was a real challenge for me with being new to CrossFit, I think it’s my favorite because after my second round I wondered what I had got myself into, even teared up a bit but I became determined to continue to push myself through it and do my best. I surprised myself at what I could accomplish.

12. Free write: Thank You to my family for always being so loving and supportive of me.  Thank You to Anna & Brad for all their hard work, time and encouragement they pour into everyone. I am always inspired to do better, be stronger, work harder and to not give up.


Memorial Day Hero WOD – Hero WODs are about the Hero not you. On Monday, we will remember Army Sgt 1st Class Daniel Crabtree and the sacrifice he made so that we can complain about how much the workout hurts. 

Dedicated to Army Sgt 1st Class Daniel Crabtree who was killed in Al Kut, Iraq on Thursday, June 8th, 2006.

“With heavy hearts we dedicate this workout to Army Sgt 1st Class Daniel Crabtree. To Daniel’s family and friends, we express our sorrow; to his wife Kathy and daughter Mallory, we tearfully acknowledge your loss as the true cost of freedom. Fair Winds, Daniel.”
