Joe Edwards from Rochester, NY and Tracy Jensen from San Antonio, TX were both in town for the Crossfit Level I Certification at One World this past weekend. They got their good-bye workouts in before heading back to their homes Monday morning. Joe was lucky enough to visit One World and Santa Cruz Central since he was in town since Wednesday of last week. Tracy, on the other hand, flew in Saturday morning at 1:30am and flew right out on Monday. I bet she sleeps on the flight home! Great to meet both of you and please visit again.
Some of you may have met Austin from Atlanta, GA tis past weekend. He was a super cool dude! Austin is interested in renting a room for two to three months while he trains at some of the various Crossfit facilities in the Bay Area. Austin plans on opening a Crossfit in Charleston, NC once he is done with his Bay Area tour. If you are interested in taking on a roommate for a few months, please contact me for Austin's info.
Today's Must Read: Someone sent me the link to this website. If you compete in this competition, you can be called "The World's Best Athlete." Check it out. Do you think excellence in theses ten events is worthy of the title? Post your thoughts to comments.
Friday is July 4th. There will be only 2 sessions: 9am and 5pm. There will be no Crossfit sessions on Saturday or Sunday since we will all be at the Crossfit Games. We will meet at One World for the Games on Saturday morning so we can caravan there. I will post all the information Wednesday night.
