Summer is (un)officially here!

Jabletes!

Summer is just about here!  Can you feel it?  The sun!  Shorts!  Sunscreen!  Icy cold beverages!  I can’t wait!  Please don’t let summer get in the way of your workouts.  If you don’t like to work out in the heat there is always 6:30am MWF!  If you are traveling there are hundreds of travel wods at noexcusecrossfit.com and the handy “burpee mile” that Brendan keeps mentioning….

Thank you to everyone to came on Memorial Day and joined us in our annual Murph WOD!  It was awesome to workout with some of you who have never done Murph before, with some of you who ALWAYS do Murph and a couple of you who went the extra mile and did Murph RX this year!  I’m so proud to be a member of such an incredible community of athletes who come together on a holiday each year in honor of those who have served and sacrificed for our freedom!  And then we ate!  This is a tradition that I always look forward to (yes the eating part, yes to all working out together but no not necessarily the 200 push ups part).  I really believe Murph, and the handful of other Hero WODs that we have done at Jab, make you push yourself more than you ever thought you could.  As Coach Chris said it before we began on Monday, “Your mind will give up a thousand times before your body”.  Not one of you listened to your mind!  Nice work, Team!

The Crossfit Regionals have wrapped up!  I posted some of the live coverage on our facebook page but in case you missed it you can find it here and watch the coverage.  The top 5 athletes from each region make it to the Crossfit Games.  There are some names you will recognize and some that you may not!  It is going to be a very exciting time watching the Games this summer!  Ben Smith placed third while his brother, Alec, placed second!  Talk about sibling rivalry ;)

Don’t forget, Barbell Club meets every Sunday morning at 8:15am!  No need to sign up and it’s included in your membership!  Come lift!

Keep Moving!
