    Look what arrived in the mail for Murphy yesterday! A Valentine’s Day card from his pug girlfriend, Olive! Olive lives in Wisconsin, so she and Murphy have a long distance relationship and often send each other things. Murphy and Olive have never met, but I know they will someday. Until then, they’ll continue to send […]

    Open gym at CrossFit was a lot of fun this morning. I loved Helen. It was an awesome WOD. I already want to attempt it again to see if I can do it faster!

    Another reason why I love CrossFit: You never know what to expect! Last night’s workout involved sandbags. That’s right, 35-pound bags filled with sand. And what did we do with them, you ask? Ran with them on our shoulders. Obviously. It’s never a dull day at CrossFit! WOD: “G.I. JOE” 400 meter Sandbag Run 35# […]

    In the past several weeks, I’ve received a ton of questions from you guys asking for cheaper and at-home ideas for CrossFit. It seems that quite a few of you want to try it, but don’t live near a CrossFit location and/or don’t have the funds to afford a membership. With that said, here are […]
