Yesterday David and I ran for a cause. Today we WOD’d in remembrance of and in gratitude to all service men and women who have served in the armed forces in order to protect our freedom. Freedom is not free; it comes at a huge cost. The WOD we did was called “Nate”. It consisted of: as many reps as possible in 20 minutes of – 2 muscle ups, 4 handstand push ups, 8 kettle bell swings to overhead, suitably scaled for those who haven’t yet mastered the various movements. Our 20 minutes of suffering was a mere pittance of a price compared to how much Chief Petty Officer Nate Hardy and his family paid on 12 February 2008.

Thank you.

Also have to say thank you to CrossFit Unparalleled in Virginia Beach and to Coach Darius for pushing David and me and for not letting us wimp out. Back at CrossFit Mt Lebanon tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing everyone there. And it is forecasted to snow tomorrow. The first measurable snow of the season. Oh, good! Not.
