    Surprise Crossfit Games Open WOD 13.0 announced!

    This one nails my strengths right down the middle. If anyone wants to train with me I will offer coaching. It’s not as easy as it looks.

    • According to Disqus, Reis just made his 901th comment on this blog (and is the top commenter overall). Anyone want to guess how many were helpful, funny or both? My guess is the number is somewhere between 900 and 902.

        A: You are very kind. Thanks…wanna go team on 13.0?

        B: Boz is the Dali of Crossfit. Bad reps are his canvas.

        • A. You’re on. I warn you my AMCAP limit is only slightly longer than my Fran time, though my Fran time sucks so maybe it’s not so bad after all.

          B. ROFL.

  • KevinBoul

    13 rounds + 12 reps. A 1 round + PR which is solid, but damn I was really gunning for 15. Next time. All of you in the 18+ round club are monsters.
