Saturday "Small" Hero WOD

Saturday 2/8 at both Sessions 9:00 and 10:00AM : Join us in honoring a Hero. 

U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Marc Small, 29, of Collegeville, Pennsylvania, died on February 12, 2009, from wounds sustained when insurgents attacked his unit with a rocket-propelled grenade launcher and small arms fire in Afghanistan. His fiancee Amanda Charney is a good friend to our member Pam Gulotta. Amanda started a non-profit charity set up in his name where their mission is to help children with speech and/or language disorders find their voice.  The organization has helped out over 200 hundred children across the USA.  For more information about the organization visit, www.smallstepsinspeech.org or for the WOD visit, http://www.crossfit.com/mt-archive2/007687.html This will be a tough one but well worth the pain!

Three rounds for time of:
Row 1000 meters
50 Burpees
50 Box jumps, 24″ box
Run 800 meters

This workout can be scaled to level and ability and depending on the weather on Saturday an additional Row can be added versus the Run.  We have gotten some requests for long chippers and we will do our best to provide you with these monthly.

I played soccer with Marc at Millersville University. He was truly a good guy, the best.

I ran the first remembrance 5k for Marc, I think b/c of Olan telling us about it. A great crowd for a first race and I think it's only gotten bigger each year

Pam dropped off some flyers today about the charity and a small box for donations, I'll put it out tomorrow. Even a small donation like $5 will add up...thanks to everyone.
