9 teams (18 athletes) took on the Helen Meets Grace partner WOD at CrossFit Excel Friday night. It was a well run, more about fun event. CrossFit Excel did a great job “pinking out” their gym and kept it lively with fun announcing (Danny Lehr was mc’ing – homie loves to talk), viagra approved cool heat prizes (bras!) and a fun, Friday Night Lights atmosphere. We look forward to more events in the future.
CFO athletes did great. Alison and I took second to friends of CFO Seth and Jill Burford in the mixed partner division. All CFO athletes did serious work, moving quickly and crisply, displaying team work and everyone finished the WOD.
Lurong WOD 6 is Wednesday – Double unders to open, then 5 rounds of power cleans and ring dips. KInd of like the classic benchmark Elizabeth.
On Saturday, we will take on “Lift Up Luke.” Luke is CrossFit fundraiser for Autism awareness. It is the brain child of Josh Everett, as CrossFit O.G. Like past fundraiser, we would love mass participation. The WOD (a 5 minute AMRAP of cleans, doubleunders and pullups) is quick, fun and easily scalable. We would love donations at the door, which we will pass on to the Everett’s charity.
