Haters gotta hate....

One of my favorite things about my Crossfit journey have been the friendships I've developed and the community that comes with it. Before I joined Crossfit Distinction I could count my true, close friends on one hand and hardly any of them live near me. Now I have a whole gym full that I know would drop what they are doing to help me and I for them. It's a really special thing. The main reason that we are all so tight, is we have two of the best trainers/owners available. Travis & Regina are there for us constantly and never complain when we ask for extra help or attention. Regina may cuss a little but that's really part of her charm....

The reason I bring all this up, is that we are competing in the Crossfit Open currently and our very own Travis is in full on BEAST MODE and at the time I write this sits at #8 on the worldwide leader board. Haters have taken to questioning his score because no one is recording it to video. I guess we can't control what people think or say but I have found it amusing and a little touching how everyone came to Trav's defense so fast. Matt aka "The Glove" actually went all Hulk-like and ripped off one of his tiny shirts as he posted his defense of Travis. Rick aka Big Ricky Pooh aka BRP actually busted out a thesaurus and used so many big words I needed someone to explain it to me. They were both impressive to say the least.

In any event, there are impressive performances constantly coming out of CFD and I figured I would share some of them. I don't have video so you are just gonna have to take my word for it.....

1. One time Rick (BRP) actually deadlifted the corner of the building...
2. The last time Dewayne did hand release push-ups he actually lowered the foundation by 2"...
3. Regina called me a "Fuck-tard". That's not really special or different come to think of it....
4. Marty aka "The Boot" tripped on a lego and was out of the gym for like a month...
5. Danimal allows us to do pull-ups from his mustache if the bars are full. No butterflies allowed though...
6. Laura frowned once..........for just a second.
7. Sarah made it through an entire WOD once without saying a cuss word.......(Ok that's a total lie.)
8. Jackie crushed her level one certification test. Apparently you do not have to kip a test....
9. Once Matt wore a Men's size large shirt and wasn't heard from for 2 days.....
10. One time I made it thru a day without commenting on anything sarcastically......(also a lie)


I know I missed some of you but I'll get to you eventually. I promise....
