CROSSFIT BROOKLYN...HMMMM...
Day 1 of the 'Chicharrones and Hot Sauce' fitness challenge AMRAP 2 min Strict HSPU - 24 (first 15 unbroken in ~30s) 21-15-9 Pull ups Burpees 3:48 (first round unbroken and fast, middle round slower with some short breaks, last round unbroken and fast) This WOD seems to me like a bodyweight Fran and gave me the 'tingles' as such Shane - did you give me your best?

I'd give 25k each to my kids for a post-college 'find out who I really am' bout of world travel. Then the other 50k would go wherever Jess thought it should.

New York boy, born and raised in Queens. I've done time in each borough except Staten Island, and also done 2 stints out in New Jersey. I had been living up in the Bronx when Jess and I decided to finally move to South Slope where all our friends were anyway. It took me about a month (or a day) to become a BK snob and I was forever done with hanging out in Manhattan. That apartment on 18th street that we moved in to was the first place I lived by choice intstead of circumstance. We doubled our rent from the place in the Bronx and it was always worth it. I'm a neighborhood person and I love it here. I like knowing people in my hood and socializing and running into friends and aquantances without having to plan it or drive somewhere. I love the diversity that this city has to offer and that it all works out. I know some really close minded people from some really nice towns around the world and I'm glad I'm not like that. Although, cost of living (and operating a business) lead me to periodically dream of living elsewhere. Whenever I have those dreams the terror creeps in. I think I might hate it anywhere else and not fit in at all. NYers are a specific breed: we joke sarcastically, we hate waiting in lines, we don't 'ride' escaltors, we can and will argue any point endlessly and with certainty, and we (mostly) also don't care if you're a gay, yellow, conservative, gun loving, free-range chicken eating, interracial illegal alien...as long as you can hang with our pace you're alright by us. I've yet to believe there's another place out there where we can all mix in well. I might like to have more space, a yard for the dogs, and to not have to worry about alternate side of the street parking and smelly garbage and tourists, but it's all a small price to pay for being a part of the greatest city in the world, Brooklyn.

Just wanted to post today about the great vibe in the gym last night. I'd had a pretty shitty morning but totally forgot about it by the time I started working at 3pm. I'm fortunate to work with and around so many cool people, so, thanks to you all!

Early on when Jess and I first started at CFSBK we had the pleasure of eating a (paleo challenge) meal with Jack. He was downright nice and had some insights on loving your life that still stick with me hard. For all the pomp and comedy Jack is really just a sweet (and strong!) guy. Never a dull moment indeed. It was a pleaseure to interview him for this...Yoga?

Squat 310x5x3 yikes
Would be Murphers...We aren't scheduling a make up for Murph and Friday night Open Gym would be a great time. Be sure to start by 6-ish, it takes a while. However, it would likely not be a great inconvenience to a class should a few people choose to make it up this weekend. It is crush week afterall. I'd suggest organizing to having a partner, Murph is hell alone. As always, ask the coach on duty how to best work in. This weekend that means Marg-asaurus...she's coaching every class this weekend! ------- David F (and anyone else interested) - I've wanted to do that race for a while. I just signed up. Thanks! I now have my one endurance event per year taken care of, at least registration-wise.

I'm glad Jane Brody wrote an artcile with some truth in it. I take her with a heaping tablespoon of salt. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/15/health/15brody.html?ref=janeebrody I'm sure she's a nice neighboor, though!
Congrats, Sarah. Well deserved. Truly one of my favorite SBKers, you are the real deal.

46:08 Rx'd About 5 minutes faster than last year. Went 10x10-20-30 and I guess it worked well for me. That 2nd mile had a lot of walking, basically every time I got to the avenues.
