    April 11, 2016


    Good morning and a very HAPPY Monday to you! How was your weekend? Ours was pretty low-key, but, at the same time, it was really nice and much-needed, especially after last week’s travel to the West coast and Mal’s solo parenting for part of the week. We both wanted to relax and unwind, but we also managed to […]

    I was right! Our box did “Fran” last night! The last time we did “Fran,” Mal and I had I just started CrossFit a few weeks before, so I used 35 pounds for Thrusters, a green band for the Pull-ups, and finished in 5:55. During “Fran,” I remembering gasping for air and taking a bunch […]
