  1. The pencil has turned to pen. I'll be there with the missus... so plus the missus?
  2. It's not as common of a way to do it, but keep an ear/eye out for gyms closing in the area. Most of them will auction off their gym equipment for next to nothing to help cover the costs of their impending bankruptcy.
  3. I've got brunch penciled in, but my wife is on a rotational work schedule so I'll know for sure the week of!
  4. Great article. Sums up a main reason why I don't do CrossFit (at least in my area, not meant as a blanket statement). Sharp pain = stop working out and pay attention!
  5. Peanut butter and bananas... that's always my go-to before a workout. Some of the harder more intense days (like intervals, CrossFit style workouts) I'll use Vega Pre-Workout Energizer just because I can actually pronounce the ingredients on the label! But that's only once a week, maybe twice.
  6. Why not be Casey Jones? Grab your Jose Canseco bat and take out some runners!
  7. If you're looking for new and different, I can get you hooked up with trying out lacrosse. I know a few light contact field nights I can suggest ( elbow pads, helmet, gloves no checking etc... older people, co-ed, non-competitive good crew to hang out with!). I have extra equipment too.
  8. The gym I go to has some really good interval classes, plus a bunch of other things to use / try out. Not sure how close it is to you though... http://www.allegiancefitness.com/
  9. Finally getting around to checking out Bacon Chase photos... only one I can find so far but I like it! https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/v/t1.0-9/s851x315/10522412_10152161590087251_2254864259130922388_n.jpg?oh=f1f0447baa40b0ca8bd1c0ff7b9e36ac&oe=5433BB19&__gda__=1414625186_db700771cc28503d43cc5ba4f813d2dc
  10. Ha... well i un-officially "met" kat as I ran past her on the course ( pink tutus and pig ears stand out in my head! ) A shame they ran out of bacon so early
  11. Great reviews so far Anivair, keep it up! My gym (which is not a "CrossFit box" by traditional definition) just had a couple of trainers become CrossFit-certified. We'll see how that goes, they haven't started classes yet. One thing I do currently (and maybe something Inferno154 should consider) is checking out some local CrossFit box's websites. A lot of them in my area post on their website the WOD's for the week... sometimes the acronyms need a quick Google/YouTube search but they do the trick. Keeps my money in my pocket & I still get the benefit. A caveat: Make sure you know proper form on the OLY lifts & only do what you can. Don't try to be Rich Froning on your 1st go at a CrossFit WOD (see it attempted before, its not pretty). Build a base and work off that.
  12. Got to see the event photos today from Warrior Dash... here's my favorite of me IMO: https://scontent-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/10544339_10152142351592251_6271703719598476199_n.jpg?oh=2c2ae2c192daeb587f107182afe2ae06&oe=5433CB1C
  13. Just came across this one... i know it's a long time out but something to keep in mind The Ugly Sweater Run (Harriet Island) http://theuglysweaterrun.com/locations/twin-cities-minnesota/#.U8fg1LHY98F
  14. Looks like a fun group of people I'm waiting to get my pics from a friend of mine that did photography on the course..should have it in the next day or two. One of the guys I did the course with isn't the greatest in shape type of guy (heck who is?!) so my friend and I went back to the halfway point on the course after we completed Goliath & helped him out ... plus side of that, we got to do 4 of the obstalces twice :D fun stuff... also enjoyed throwing mudballs at each other on the finish stretch
