On the Home Front:

This weekend is the 24 Rowing Challenge. Starting at 9AM on Saturday morning up at Quest University CrossFitters from all over the lower mainland (including 25+ people from our gym) will begin a row for Right to Play. They’ll spend the next 24hrs pulling as many meters as they can in teams of 5. How can you get in on this? Well, you have three options:

1. take one of the last 3 (as of this afternoon) spots on team 6
2. donate to Right to Play
3. come and cheer people on/ bring me a delicous treat

Side note: Anyone who is rowing this weekend should give their head a shake if they’re signed into any Friday classes. As well some of the members from team six have been wondering where I was going to get the extra erg from.
Globally:

Yesterday morning CrossFit announced that the purse for the 2011 CrossFit Games will be 1 million dollars. With the top man and woman receiving 250K each. Sectionals this year will be a little different than in years past. Check out the skinny on this years games here.

This is a video from the guys at CrossFit Kelowna. Feel free to add these into your warm up:)
