Happy birthday you two! Cate I owe it to you for going to KOP, if you hadn't rocked the KOP hoodie that one day at DuJour I wouldn't have ever met such an awesome group of people. Thanks!

Happy birthday "Queen" Cate and Jerry "The Man"!! I'm not surprised two amazing people share the same birthday. You guys bring a great positive attitude to the gym that's only matched by your sheer effort and work output. Hope it's a great day!

Happy birthday, Cate and Jerry! I hope you both enjoy your special day and are spoiled rotten by your subjects (Cate).

Happy birthday Cate & Jerry!

Cate said...

Thanks for all the birthday wishes!

Happy birthday Jerry! It's a good thing we didn't both show up to the same class. It would have been death by burpees!

Laura, Kerry, and I were at CF Del Val for their Frank Fowler Memorial Fund, hosted by one of their members, Carlos. His brother passed away from a drug overdose so this WOD was meant to bring awareness to people. They had Kevin O'Malley from Boston also speak about his past drug addiction and his journey to help addicts discover CrossFit. (He has also written an article for the CF Journal) It was a very cool morning with quite a burner for a workout:

AMRAP in 20 minutes:
7 burpees
14 box jumps, 20"
21 kettlebell swings, 53/35

Laura 9 rounds + 3 burpees (highest for women!)
P. Lentus 9 rounds + 7 burpees + 4 box jumps

Kevin, the speaker, got 13 rounds. siiick.

James Hobart was there and told us about the Flight Simulator WOD: 5-10-15-20-25-30-35-40-45-50 and back down to 5 of UNBROKEN double unders. He did it in 7:41 and thinks he can get it down under 7. Who wants to try it??
