So, I think (crossing my fingers) that warm weather is upon us and that means it is time to get outside and use the fitness that we have worked so hard for all winter. There are many events that CFB will be doing and I want to make sure that everyone is aware of them. First up is the Edgerton Mud Challenge which is a 5k put on by the fire department. It is coming up quickly...like in 2 weeks quickly. May 11, so if you want in on the action please sign up and it should be warm! Which brings up and interesting topic, "Mud runs in cold weather." After the Gladiator Assault challenge, that I talked a few of you into doing, there will be no suggestions from me of doing a mud run from the months of October to April. If I do try and talk you into a mud run in cold weather you have permission to bitch slap me!
The big one this summer is going to be The Spartan Race July 20th. We decided to switch it up this year from the Tough Mudder and I expect it is gonna be a legit challenge as it is CrossFit oriented. We are chartering the same bus as last year and it even looks like we may need to do two from all the people signed up! The more the merrier right??? Other races include the Milton Mud Run and The Rockin' the Mud Challenge!
I also want to put on a summer camp (remember those) where you get to be a kid again. My family has a beautiful cabin in Park Falls and it would be amazing to get the CrossFit Crew up for a weekend. We have been know to preform burpees on the dock and then swim out to the float for thrusters with heavy rocks! I was thinking the weekend of July 5th, 6th, and 7th. Please let me know if you are in. It will be a weekend of complete lawlessness and fitness with copious amounts of beer! Does that go together???
Other things I have in mind are a hoover ball tournament hosted at the Thiele residents in Beloit. I want to get to other CrossFit gyms in the area involved and since we have home court advantage and Marshall we should dominate!
Lastly there are a few mud volley ball tourneys we will be participating in, Rockton and Janesville. I do not know the dates yet but I promise it is a great time and I will post the dates so we can get a few teams together. Our last years team name was "It ain't pretty being easy" and we totally dominated!
If you have any events on your calendar let me know and we will get the Beloit CrossFit Crew involved!
