I hope that you’re all at least gandering at the spectacle that is the CrossFit Games…some pretty incredible performances going on out there in California.
August has a number of (local) CrossFit-related events that I wanted all of you to know about…
August 2nd – 31 Heroes. This is a buddy memorial WOD to raise money and memorialize the servicemen and servicedog who died on Extortion 17 on August 6th, 2011. A couple different boxes in the area are hosting it – CrossFit 611 (formerly East Coast CrossFit) in Southern Pines, and CrossFit Ferus in Fayetteville (Tallywood Shopping Center). I’ll personally be heading out to 611 for it. Check out http://www.31heroes.com/ for more information about registration and the WOD itself.
August 16th – Garage Games World Wide WOD Global Aftermath. RedPoint is hosting this competition for individuals. http://www.thegaragegames.com/events/world-wide-wod-global-aftermath-2014/
August 23rd – RedPoint is hosting a book reading, community WOD, and signing of Learning to Breathe Fire: The Rise of CrossFit and the Primal Future of Fitness from the author herself, J.C. Herz. Shoot me a note for more information – it’s open to all in the area!
And here’s today’s WOD:
