Soooo they still need 8 Advanced Women (nudge, nudge, Kim, I DEFINITELY recall you saying something about competing if I was going to when we were all doing jello shots at Xena's party!!), and there are 2 openings for Open Men's and Open Women's divisions. Any takers? Come compete with us, it'll be fun, I promise (once you're done with the WODs haha). P.S. I love that pic...talk about a great way to finish up a 6 AM workout.

Yes, I was referring to Andy McCann. You need to send him your heat WOD results by Saturday at andymccann1@yahoo.com

Is anyone doing their SF heat WOD tomorrow? I can be there by 5:30 PM if anyone is interested, otherwise I will set up a time to do it on my own later this week. They are due to Andy by Saturday.

I'd say let's plan on next Tuesday. I can make sure to be out of work on time to be there by 5:30 or so. Additionally, I agree with Bostic that you should register ASAP if you're thinking about competing. Registration is $35 right now, but goes up to $50 on 8/7. Registration closes completely on 8/14 (except to fill incomplete heats).

Looking forward to getting back into the gym after a few days off out in Denver for a wedding (although running up there was fun haha). Someone care to share what's on the board today? Also, to anyone else who is doing the GG - Survival of the Fittest and got that antsy email from Andy this morning, I was thinking we could set up a time later this week/this weekend to do our heat WODs together if you haven't already done them. It's not technically due until the 14th, so maybe next week, if that's easier...

First, happy birthday LA! Hopefully I'll be in the gym at the same time as you one of these days. Second, tonight's WOD was rough...gotta work on that snatch form! Third, Brant, I blame you saying "at least we don't have to jump over a wall between each burpee" for tomorrow's HQ WOD. Thanks.

Great to be back. Nice to feel sore all over again :)

Well, the bright side to this WOD for me is no pull-ups...but I am hurting from yesterday and I'm not great at any of this other than DLs. Guess that's what I get for taking 4 weeks off. I plan to be in at 6:30 if I don't get stuck at work...which is entirely possible.

Is anyone else interested in doing the CrossFit Garage Survival of the Fittest challenge at the end of the summer with me? (Bostic, I think this is the one you're doing also?) I am competing in the women's open division. It's Saturday, August 21st. Check it out: http://www.crossfitgarage.com/?page_id=4646

This one looks fun...I am taking a break for the next few weeks while I move into my new place (I am staying in Roswell, long story which I'll tell later for anyone interested). But hope to be back in the gym regularly again starting around July 15 or so. Looking forward to Xena's party tomorrow night, though!!!

Does anyone know someone who might be able/willing to watch my dog next weekend from Thursday night through Sunday night? He's a sheltie, about 30 lbs, pretty laid back, and doesn't require a lot of exercise...I would definitely pay (or return the favor later in the summer), I'd just rather see him stay with someone I trust than put him in a kennel.

Well for all the other guys it's 75lbs. But since you asked I'm guessing it'll be about 200 for you. What is the weight for women?

Glad I did that 5k today, it was a lot of fun despite the rain. I also finally picked up a pair of FiveFingers. Gotta say they're pretty comfy. And yes, I will heed the warning to break them in slowly.

Happy Birthday, Lynn! Registered for the 5K last night. Looking forward to getting my run out of the way early on Monday so I can relax and enjoy the rest of my Memorial Day, since for once I'll have two days in a row off work!

I would like to say that the sign is highly entertaining. Thanks for that. Also, Breeze, idk what you told Dallas, but they told my mom that they definitely think I would be a good asset to the PD there. If I get that job I will need Stanley's shirt size and address so I can send him a DPD shirt.

Congrats, Brad and Kim! And obviously I don't keep up with the blog well...saw your comment about the call yesterday, Brad. Still waiting to get a call back to wrap things up, but will let you know how it goes. Thanks again for that. Also, best of luck to Stringer and fam...can't wait to hear all about it!

Looks fun, I might be up for it...have to wait until I hear from Dallas, though, in case I end up having to go out of town that weekend. Should know soon!

Kim, thanks so much for doing the oly class. My technique still needs a lot of work, but having a chance to work solely on that makes a big difference. Definitely worth the time!!

Awesome job tonight, Katie and Milliron!! Congrats on your muscle up, I can only hope that I'll be there sometime this year. And way to go James for taking first in Men's scaled! Must be a family thing. Also, thanks for everyone's well wishes and support while I was preparing for my physical fitness assessment. I passed it this morning and had my interview this afternoon, so I should know how that went in a week or two.

Is this one going to be up on the board next week sometime, too? I remember doing the kids version last year and it was somewhat miserable, but I'd like to try it again.

Kim, for some reason I am getting a blank fundraising page (says " 's fundraising page") when I use the link you posted. I went through CF Lumberjack's site and found your page and donated through that. For anyone interested, the link for Kim's page is https://www.rapidreghost.com/cfhf/FundraiserPage.php?frID=194 I am excited to participate in this WOD. -Simon

Wow, I look like I'm working hard. You would never know that's right in the middle of my set of 21. Great to be back, though. I missed being sore after every workout haha. Anna, I will definitely try to be by for a drink. Like I said, you deserve to celebrate all weekend long!
1 reply
Yeah, this was a fun one to come back to after more than 6 months off. I only did half and I know I'll be feeling it tomorrow. Great job to everyone at the 12:30! Good to be back.
