  1. Not going to my 4:15 today so there is a spot available! I am on my way to the 6AM instead…

  2. I’m not going to be able to make it to my 5:30. I’ll be helping with set up for the Relay for Life…. and then I’m going to run it. I shutter to think what my legs will feel like tomorrow.

  3. Woohooo! Just registered for the cert šŸ™‚ anyone interested should register fast it tends to sell out quickly. Have a great day everyone!

  4. I will cancel for tonight… I have to pack for our adventure race and I don’t want to be sore for the race!

    You guys enjoy that WOD for me, ok?! šŸ™‚

    My spot was at 5:30!

  5. Leaving right after work to go away, please cancel my 4:15. Enjoy the weather this weekend- play hard!

    1. Thanks Tracy šŸ™‚ you’re a sweetheart! Have a great weekend in the Miramichi – want to do the workout together sometime next week and then go to dinner?

      1. Yeah Baby! Two of my favorite things…working out and eating, not in that order. Any other takers?

    9 rounds and 7 – to be honest, I’m really not sure that is very accurate – by the end I was having a hard time doing the lifts, breathing and counting at the same time… If anyone knows any different about my count, please let me know so I’ll know what I have to beat for next time.

    So overwhelmed with all the cheering I didn’t write it down till I got home.

    Being new to crossfit, I can say, it is the toughest thing I’ve EVER done in my life. HOWEVER, without a doubt, the dynamics of the group is second to none. So although the toughest thing, the people make it the BEST thing. Thank you for the great cheering tonight.

    Amanda, thank you for MAKING me go šŸ™‚
    Gabrielle thank you for your continued cheer leading and individual coaching you have given me.
    Jane your sense of humour just about makes me “pee” when I’m trying my 15# back squat.
    Jeff thanks for cheering for me yet again…even when I was doing burpees in the back of the parking lot.
    Sweet Mel thanks for teaching me how to make “bum angels”
    Gerry if you ever feel like doing a WOD 2x in one night you can always come back and join me.
    Uncle Patrick, I love your body.
    Kevin…..you’ve established a great gym and even better family, thanks for being a great coach.

    There..now I feel like Sally Field just accepting an Oscar.

    1. HAHAHA Awesome.

      I couldn’t believe Heather and Kevin when they told me you made it to 8 rounds today. Wow!

    2. Woohooooooo!! So happy to see you posting Cheyenne! My God you were great tonight! That was 8 rounds and 4 reps!!! So fantastic!! You are such a hard worker and it’s such a pleasure to have you with us šŸ™‚ We’re all more than happy to help anytime šŸ˜€ You are such a ray of sunshine Cheyenne!
