    What a cool pic 🙂 Nice learning stuff about Elena. I haven’t met her yet but I look forward to next time I can drop in for a 6 pm class.

    Work has picked up a tick and haven’t been on the blog lately. I must say that the profiles are a nice touch and enjoyed reading the post and comments on “What crossfit has done for you.” For a moment I was touched and compelled to type a few words until I mistakenly bumped my mouse and scrolled down one window and all my emotions turned to shear terror. Don Edwards and his grape huggers. Is this really necessary? Can we limit this exclusively to Sundra’s e-mail? Don’s statewide notoriety has left him difficult to work with at this establishment. I’m pondering making weightlifting his full time profession. This picture is missing two things, black and white and a date of 1954.
