Next Thursday is the beginning of the 2017 Crossfit Games! I’m so excited. Time to tune in and watch the competition. I believe it will be pretty thrilling this year and definitely tough! How do we watch the games? Online is the best and this year you can find it here you can also catch some of the action on CBS Sports, online and on tv. I can’t wait! Will it be Katrin and Fraser again? I have a feeling there may be a couple of new Fittest on Earth 😉 Grab your popcorn (or perhaps a bouquet of bacon) and check it out!
If you aren’t on Facebook, and I knew a few of you aren’t, I wanted to let you know that next Friday, August 4th at the 5pm class we will be saying a last goodbye to our beloved Dice! I hope everyone can make it to the 5pm class that day, workout all together and then head to the Duchess for post wod beverages and food and lots of hugs and most likely shed a few tears as we wish Dice and her wife the best in their new adventures in San Diego! If you are unable to make the workout please come meet us at the Duchess after 6pm. Also, Dice will be leaving behind a very large void in our community. We would like to extend next Friday as a free Buddy Day as well in hopes that maybe we can get 10 new athletes to fill the shoes of one moving away! Bring your friend, workout together, cheer on Dice and everyone else.
First I’d like to say a a big congratulations to John and Yana for running Ragnar last weekend! They began with their team in Blaine, WA all the way up at the Canadian border and finished in Langely, WA on Whidbey Island! I’m sure they are happy to have completed it and I can’t wait to hear all about it! That Deception Pass area is gorgeous!! Nice work, you two!
Do you follow She Thrives blog? I really do love reading her blog. She’s a Crossfit Coach up in Alderwood and posts about the real stuff. I love her honesty, her posts about real life and that it’s not always six packs and protein powder and how to not be so hard on yourself. Today she posted in Instagram about a fresh start and it really resonated with me. I love the idea of letting it all go. Leave all the garbage you’ve eaten, the lack of getting into the gym, feeling bad about yourself and starting new. She is right, today is a new day and that means what you did last weekend/week/month can all be tossed away because today is the day that means something. Today you’ll get in and lift that heavy weight like you mean it. Like you need to. Today you’ll make some choices about what you eat that you know is right. Focus on what is important, what will make you feel good and then keep moving forward. Remember that you have the power to choose! Make yourself proud, you deserve it!
shethrivesblogI know it’s cool to hate Monday’s and all, but I love any excuse for a fresh start. a new week just seems to always feel like just that.
A chance to leave all the garbage behind and step into a clean slate; to refocus your energy wherever you really want it; a chance to start something new, or to renew something old; a stretch of blank days to make choices that get you that much closer to who you *want* to be.
Who do you want to be? It doesn’t have to be the same person as yesterday. Where do you want to go? It can be anywhere. How do you want to feel at the week’s end? This new week, make yourself proud. #newweekwhodis
