Reply corey on June 3, 2013 at 9:56 pm oh man, how awesome is this? another amazing effort by an amazing community. Reply Matty Noits on June 3, 2013 at 10:20 pm We should send them a Team Photo and a care package with school supplies. Reply Megan B on June 3, 2013 at 10:43 pm This is a great idea. Reply Heather O on June 4, 2013 at 8:10 am Love this idea! I am in for sure!! Reply dan doc on June 4, 2013 at 8:40 am Great idea. Let’s advance it. Reply Brooke S on June 4, 2013 at 9:08 am Might be cool to send backpacks filled with school supplies for the kids. Might also be cool to contact them for a wish list so we can send them packages periodically. Reply Rachel E on June 4, 2013 at 9:31 am Love this idea! Count me in. Reply Scott M on June 4, 2013 at 10:45 am How many kids? Are they athletes too? We have some clients that might donate some products. Reply Shannon Dre on June 4, 2013 at 11:03 am awesome idea! I’m in too. Reply LEARD on June 4, 2013 at 12:48 pm We could us the Internal Team Throwdown (June 15th) as a collection day. Bring some school supplies or other items with you and we can send it out to our “new” community by the end of the month. Any of the folks (JC, Eric C.) that went to the site, what are some items we could send to aid our “new” community? I’d be willing to fill out the custom forms and do some leg work. Reply LEARD on June 4, 2013 at 12:49 pm *use Reply Judi on June 4, 2013 at 1:40 pm I have sent an email to some folks to get more info….stay tuned. Reply Sara C on June 4, 2013 at 4:12 pm That’s a perfect idea…anything they can use, let’s send them! Every child deserves the same as our children have here in our bubble of the world. Reply Alison on June 4, 2013 at 7:30 pm Great idea. Reply Matty Noits on June 4, 2013 at 9:29 pm I am bringing my daughter to London to send her off to Kenya with my Dad. I am packing her two deflated soccer balls and two mini hand pumps with ball needles. Lets ask the CFNE folks who were there how Manny students are at the school. We can base the numbers of items on that count. I ma happy to coordinate the collection. Matt Reply Matty Noits on June 3, 2013 at 10:21 pm Love these photos. Reply AK on June 3, 2013 at 10:27 pm What an inspiring day! The future looks bright and promising! Reply denise sullivan on June 3, 2013 at 10:51 pm pictures say a thousand words…what a great thing!

Reply Cotter on June 4, 2013 at 6:48 am “Thriller”: 4:27 Rx Reply rich t on June 4, 2013 at 7:33 am Thriller – 6:25 Rx outside and on deck wit da boyz. (step down box jumps) Reply Chad M on June 4, 2013 at 7:38 am Thriller. 4.28Rx Thanks for the push Cotter! Reply David N on June 4, 2013 at 7:40 am Thriller 6:09 (115) back of the room with Cotter and Chad Reply Amy B on June 4, 2013 at 7:48 am 4:32 Rx Front of the room where Heather Vitti watched me finish the final round since she was ALREADY DONE! Great work kid! 1 mile run with Katie C after. Reply Andrew Ho on June 4, 2013 at 7:51 am Thriller: 4:52 Rx Then a hodge pot of crap: a solid couple dozen failed muscle ups where I’m told “I’m totally high enough…but just need to get my head through.” Great, my big head causing problems again. I did get my first pistols today so that’s a plus. As best I can tell that only leaves 3 CF movements I can’t do Rx: ring muscle up, bar muscle up, and handstand walks. Time to get to work. Then, did some jump rope and hand release push-ups. The real obstacle, however, was that there was no hot water in the gym shower. Yowza!!! Everything disappeared except my gut…man that thing is stubborn. Reply Colleen (OC) on June 4, 2013 at 9:19 am Awesome Andrew! First pistols, nice!!! Reply Susan Celli (Subie) on June 4, 2013 at 1:27 pm way too funny! Reply Colleen (OC) on June 4, 2013 at 7:53 am Thriller: 4:57, 55#. Love the idea of a care package Matt! Let’s do it! Challenge update: Over 2% body fat lost and an inch and a half off my waist. Gonna keep going with this so I can see how many PRs I can get in the upcoming months! Reply Tricia D on June 4, 2013 at 8:12 am Colleen! You better not lose any more inches girl or we won’t be able to find you!! Congratulations!!! Reply Michelene on June 4, 2013 at 8:47 am Great job!! Reply Heather O on June 4, 2013 at 9:10 am Congrats on the challenge girl! Those are huge numbers for someone so tiny. Keep up the amazing work. Reply brooke s on June 4, 2013 at 8:05 am 30 minute pre-WOD run 4:53 Thriller – nowhere near RX. 53#, 2nd and 3rd rounds did step-ups. Reply Heather V. on June 4, 2013 at 8:07 am Thriller: 3:20 Rx T2B practice & MU practice… Back to my rings on the kids playground. Reply Tricia D on June 4, 2013 at 8:21 am holy smokes – so fast!

Reply Andy L on June 4, 2013 at 8:15 am Thriller: 5:56 Rx DU practice and first MU attempts. Reply Tricia D on June 4, 2013 at 8:17 am Thriller: 4:59 (55#) Clean form pretty bad today – really need to work on focusing on form in fast wods. Thanks to Michelene for sharing a box with me – I def moved faster than I would have if I wasn’t focused on getting off that box so I wasn’t hogging it! Great job, btw, super fast!! Team Challenge – down 3.2% body fat, 1 inch on the waist, and 4.5 pounds. Thanks for teaching us about the blocks, Harry. Totally makes a difference and I’m going to stick with it. Reply Michelene on June 4, 2013 at 8:49 am Awesome work today and on the challenge!! Way to go! Reply Heather O on June 4, 2013 at 9:09 am Great job on the challenge! You are looking just so great! I’m sad I missed you this am but I just could not get up today! See you later this week. xoxo Reply Sarah S. on June 4, 2013 at 1:23 pm Congratulations Tricia!

Reply Andrew Ho on June 4, 2013 at 9:44 am Grace in victory as always…you came shooting out that door so excited to tell us how amazing you were. Just adorable. Reply Big Mike on June 4, 2013 at 10:28 am Well it was on my way home after I had put my weights away so I thought I’d swing by and see if you guys were OK. Reply Michelene on June 4, 2013 at 8:57 am Great pics of the kids and school and would love to contribute to the care package if it materializes.

Love the photos! Pride in Effort – here and half a world away. Reply Eric C on June 4, 2013 at 11:29 am Those photos bring back such great memories. I think of that experience everyday! If we do care packages, I highly suggest deflated soccer balls and a hand pump/needle. I gave them one from my daughter and you would have thought I handed those kids a Million Dollars. They were using rolled up trash bag as a soccer ball. Reply Judi on June 4, 2013 at 12:41 pm Eric, notice the kid in the front is holding a homemade “soccer ball”? I think it’s a tribute to you!

Reply Susan Stein on June 4, 2013 at 12:17 pm Thriller: 5:05 (70#) Great pictures, so cool to see the effects of everyone’s effort! On a side note: lost an earring during the box jumps. If anyone finds it, please leave it at the front desk for me. It’s a sapphire and diamond stud. Sort of looks like a flower. Thanks in advance! Reply Judi on June 4, 2013 at 12:43 pm Thank you to everyone for your enthusiasm about sending care packages/supplies. I will send a few emails today to see what would be best. Two issues we need to sort out: 1) what would be best to send? We can’t send enough for “some” kids…needs to be enough for everyone so no one is left out and 2) customs, my recollection is that it’s not so easy to get packages through to the village and we might need to wait until someone returns to Kenya. WIll keep you posted….you all are the best! Reply LEARD on June 4, 2013 at 1:36 pm Judi, can you keep me posted tleard54 @ yahoo. I’m happy to aid in whatever way I can. Reply Laura c on June 4, 2013 at 12:50 pm Thriller; 5:20 75# My head was 100% not into this today. Some days like that. Great MU work pre-wod. Thx mdv:)! Reply Rich P on June 4, 2013 at 1:01 pm Ran probably about 2.5 super casual, stretching, 25 unbroken pushups. I’ve reached a point that I can consistently do 25 unbroken pushups… this seems so insignificant, but trust me it’s serious progress. Time to shoot for 30… Reply Newer Comments → Trackbacks/Pingbacks #WODsohard | Tuesday 6.4.13 - [...] June 3, 2013 Categories: CrossFit New England [...] Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
