Honor the 10th anniversary of September 11th in CrossFit style:
1. Saturday, September 10th:
Black Box member Sean Rogers co-founded the Civilian Military Combine, an awesome mountain run / obstacle course with a CF-inspired “pit” (testing thrusters, box jumps, burpees and KB swings).
The race is this Saturday, but it’s still not too late to sign up.
We’ll provide transportation from the Box early Saturday morning for participants and volunteers. It should be a lot of fun, and a great chance to put your training to use in the outside world.
2. Sunday, September 11th:
Air Force pilot and crossfitter Chris Pace is starting from Arlington Cemetery on Friday night, biking 150 miles north, then running the next 100 miles, to end at the Black Box on Sunday morning, all without stopping to sleep or eat along the way.
Come celebrate his arrival (some time between 9am and noon). Or, even better, come jog the final stretch along with him once he crosses into NYC. (Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details).
A: Deadlift 1-1-1-1-1
Just wanted to put out a reminder to our members that Friday, September 16th is our next “Post-Elements Dinner” (which is also a pre-FGB6 celebration) at Rare Bar & Grill, starting at 7:30pm. Who’s invited? Anyone who’s recently graduated (or about to graduate) from the Elements Workshop, anyone who’s been a member for a little while or a long while, anyone who’s participating in Fight Gone Bad 6 or would like to say hello to those who are, and anyone who’d like to socialize with her or his fellow crossfitters in general while eating a juicy steak. Join us, won’t you? Please post your RSVP to comments!
