Nothing funny here just the hardest working man in Crossfit. 115 Comments Newer Comments → Kate S on October 3, 2013 at 8:19 pm hey all — I have a brand spanki’n new Harbinger weight belt – black, 5″ wide, size Medium – that I am looking to sell for $20 rather than ship back .. since.. long story short – I ordered it thinking mine was gone forever and then my missing belt mysteriously appeared in someone else’s bag – not naming any names since you know who you are! but let me know if anyone is interested. I own the exact same one and love it .. firstname.lastname@example.org – first come, first serve! Reply Kate's New Harbinger WeightBelt on October 3, 2013 at 9:34 pm Please don’t sell me. I can’t think of anyone else I want to be with. We had such great lifts together since your old belt decided to hide on you. Give your old belt away and I promise you PR after PR. Don’t treat me like Mike G’s shirt! I deserve better! Reply Ho on October 3, 2013 at 11:24 pm See below. Epic fail.

Enjoy the day! Reply Jen W on October 4, 2013 at 7:24 am So I overslept. It wasn’t on purpose (although I *was* dreading this workout). Now I feel all guilty about it but am wondering if it’s a good thing in the long run because 1) I’m wicked sore from yesterday, and 2) I have a really long run to do on Sunday. Reply Andrew E on October 4, 2013 at 8:36 am We have Kill Cliff… Reply Jen W on October 4, 2013 at 8:54 am Hahahaha. I know, right? If that can’t get me out of bed and into CFNE, I must have needed to sleep in.

It was tough but very necessary. 🙂 Have a happy Friday everyone! 🙂 xo Reply Sam on October 4, 2013 at 8:32 am good going, Heather! vail and all…..lol I was just thinking(after we finished)that I should do this once a week. It seems to work on a lot of aspects of cardio–stamina, endurance, speed, anaerobic threshold….) but, notice I said that after WOD–not DURING. It was HARD!!! Reply Tricia D on October 4, 2013 at 8:42 am So much fun this morning and you are a good sport to WOD in the veil and boa :). So happy for you, girl.

Good to see Rachel E at the 5:30 am this morning! Congrats Heather O! You were such a good sport, running in a veil this morning!!! As I said this morning, it’s a good thing you’re marrying Kevin O- since you will now always be Heather O!

Shirt off for me is like Hawk turning his hat in “over the top”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvB2RW9i7w0 sorry man you had no chance. i was like a mac truck coming through. That being said great PRs to you on that run. Ho on October 4, 2013 at 7:58 am Ball and Chain: 1:29, 1:28, 1:32, 1:28, 1:28, 1:30, 1:27…huge victory this morning. Last time we did this most of my times were in the high 1:50s. It’s easy (or easier I suppose) to get better at the things you like, but the real triumphs are getting better at the things you despise. And running, maaaaaan, screw running. Handstand holds: 5 rds, 20 seconds on, 40 seconds off. Congrats, Heather O.!!! Can’t wait to see the pics from this morning.
