Happy Birthday Nikki - It's been amazing working out with you the past year, especially as a teammate, and watching you grow and get STRONG. You definately set the bar high, keep up the great work and the postivitiy.

Christine, keep up the awesome work and your smiles at the gym. It was good to see you tonight great work on your clean & jerks!

I'm not sure I'll make it to the gym today but I'll do burpees for both you and Christine at home if I need to :)

Kim G said...

Happy birthday Nikki! You are always a positive force at the box and appreciate all the encourgement you give! I owe you burpees (and I will do them today). Thank you for the brutal WOD this morning!

Tim P said...

Hapy bday 'cole..... Hope today continues to be fun and exciting for you :) Its been very cool to see you get huge returns from some solid training.

Dorothy said...

Happy Birthday Nikki. I love how you set a goall for yourself and then go at it. I remember the strung double unders WOD, when you did singles. Once you realized that 30 strung double unders was not enough, you worked on them, and now you are on the 100 double under board.

That's just one example andI could think of several others. Your training is focused and intentional. I really admire that about you.

On a personal level, you were the first person to welcome me to Crossfit KOP besides Aimee. You were very nice and sweet. You helped me with my diet, my training and rest schedule, my goal setting. You taught me how to get power in my row. You also inspire me by letting me know where you started, where you've been and how you worked to get where you are today.

Thanks so much for everything you bring to Crossfit KOP.

I hope you have a happy and relaxing birthday.

Dorothy said...

Check it out. Plentus is on the CFDV blog today. I almost didn't recognize him with his shirt on. ha ha!

Danny said...

Happy Birthday Nikki and Christine!

Lindsey said...

Happy Birthday Nikki and Christine!!! Make it great :-)

Melanie said...

Happy birthday to Nikki and Christine!! I hope you have all of yoru birthday wishes come true!

Melanie said...

Plentus- that picture is not the same without your shirt off. Just kidding (well not really). Way to represent on another affliates home page!

Melanie said...

Anyone interested in a team for the South Philly Rumble?? I will be incredibly well rested after coming back from my honeymoon so this is just what I will need to get my ass back into it!!

shoeless said...

Nikki, you've taught me so much, especially with things like how to train smart and get enough rest. Every time I've sought your advice or feedback, you've enthusiastically given me far more than I could have asked for or expected. Thanks so much for all the extra time you spent to make me a better athlete. Happy birthday!

Mel, I'm interested in the Rumble.

Anyone want to see Ryan Moody on 3/3?

stephanie Vincent said...

Nikki,

happy birthday partner!!!! You are one of the nicest people that I know. Your skills as an athlete are only rivaled by your skills as a coach. You believe in me and that means a lot. Thanks for helping me learn its important to sometimes stop and take a breath. I sincerly wish you happiness this year and always!

Happy Birthday Christine...don't know much about you yet...but looking forward to it!! enjoy your day!

Anonymous said...

I would be up for the south philly rumble, with a team that is okay with the fact that i'd have to scale anything with the pull-up bar, rings or climbing rope. Mel you should be on a team with RXstars :-)

JZuck said...

Happy Birthday Nikki and Christine!!!

Chris P. said...

Christine, you're always willing to come in and learn and give it your best. I've seen big improvements in the time you've been at KoP and I expect even more now that you're in the groove.

Nikki, your enthusiasm for CF and for improving not only your personal performance, but also the performance of others, is awesome. I wish I had your flexibility too, ha!

Happy birthday to you both!

Todd said...

Nikki, Thanks for all you do. You are a great coach and positive influence on the box. It was an honor competing with you at the throwdown!

Mel: I am in for the rumble if you still need someone...

Christine said...

Happy Birthday, Nikki!! Thank you for all of your coaching help and inpsiration!

Thanks to my fellow KoPers, too, for the birthday wishes.

Also, that's an awesome pic of me. I look like I need to add fiber to my diet. :P

Todd said...

I almost forgot, happy birthday Nikki and Christine!

Ellie said...

Happy Birthday Nikki! Ditto what everyone else has said. You are a great role model for everyone at CrossFit - you work hard; you cheer everyone on; you are a leader, a coach, a teammate, and so much more… and you always seem so happy at the 6am Wednesday classes (though that could be due, in part, to the Wawa coffee I see you toting around). =) Thanks SO much for your help and guidance- hope you have a wonderful birthday!

Jason Lyons said...

Happy birthday Nikki and Christine.

Christine: glad you are back. Keep up the good work.

Nikki: I learn from you and you love for this is contagious. Thank you for helping us as much as you do. You made Chloe's arrival nearly seemless and we will be forever grateful.

Miranda said...

Nikki- my coach, my friend, my inspiration. I am so fortunate to have met you and to have you in my life. I am constantly inspired by you and your enthusiasm and passion for Crossfit is contagious! Thank you for believing in me and opening my eyes to so many things! Love you!!

Christine-happy, happy Birthday!!!! Love working out with you and seeing your smile!

Megs said...

Happy Birthday Christine! It was good to see you tonight.

Happy Birthday, Nikki. Ditto to what everyone else said + a big thanks!! You have a great heart - never, ever forget it.

Ok - whose shoes?

Kristen SB said...

Happy Birthday, Christine and Nikki!!! I wish you guys all the best this year!

Christine, I have enjoyed working out with you in the past and I hope to see you more often at the box.

Nikki, you are a great athlete and coach. I second all the great comments everyone has shared about you. Thanks for your ongoing support and encouragement at the box.

Happy Birthday Nikki! You have shown me the path leading from one cult in to the gaping maw of another.

jen.curran@verizon.net said...

Nikki, I love your coaching style! You exude integrity and high morale in all that you do. I'm glad our paths have crossed. ~ Hope you enjoyed your birthday! ~ Much respect, grans.

Nikki said...

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes! You made my day great!

You guys are the reason I love being a coach at CFKOP. Each of you comes into the box with energy and enthusiasm, holds yourself to high standards, and gives every WOD 100%. The energy, enthusiasm and dedication you see in me is a really just a reflection of the positive attitudes you all bring to the box each day. Thanks for helping make this past year so fantastic, and I'm looking forward to another great year to come!
