Fourth of July

Psst. Tomorrow is the 4th of July, and you may be off from work, but I hope you didn’t think we’d let you off that easy.

You may notice on the blog, that there is a Hero WOD called The Seven scheduled for tomorrow. This is the history that CrossFit HQ has provided:

A suicide bomber killed seven CIA officers and one Jordanian officer at a remote base in southeastern Afghanistan on December 30, 2009 after posing as a potential informant reporting on Al Qaeda. Seven new stars will be etched onto the memorial wall at the CIA where every star represents grieving friends, family and colleagues dedicated to fight against the enemy, forever in their name.

Killed in the attack were CIA officers Jennifer Lynne Matthews, 45; Scott Michael Roberson, 39; Harold E. Brown Jr., 37; Darren LaBonte, 35; Elizabeth Hanson, 30; and security contractors Jeremy Jason Wise, 35, and Dane Clark Paresi, 46.

If a good Hero WOD doesn’t quench your Fourth of July thirst, Team Dangerous is hosting a team competition tomorrow at the UWS location from 1-3pm. You’ll meet some new friends from CFNYC and various local Boxes, do a few tough (but FUN) workouts, and enjoy the always friendly and playful environment of a TD event. Come see for yourselves and start your 4th off with a bang. See the event details here. Tickets are $10 with all proceeds going to charity. See you there, in your best red, white, and blue!
