Welcome Back by Coach Kevin
What a great two months back at Local! It’s amazing to come back to a gym you call family. It’s been amazing getting to coach, workout and get to know with the new members as well as catching up with the old ones. Here are some highlights from the last few months:
Jeopardy WOD reigns – Jennifer’s 500 row was classic, as was Daniel’s 400 m attempt. Jeremy Smarch bar muscle ups were amazing, as well as Chad Edwards and Kelly Edwards snatch work. Tamlin Pavelsky ALMOST had the pistols. Rothy killed it on the MU. Too much fun!
Catching Leia Langston PR pretty much every time she touched a barbell. 7 PR’s this month?!? That has to be a record. We need to rename it the “Leia Bell.”
Best before class question: “What are you OCD about?” Really got to know our members – maybe a few TOO well?
Tire flipping – and having Julia Neal photo-bomb every pic.
Success: PR-ing my snatch at 190#. When you’re old, you only PR once a year. That’s it for 2018.
Failure: Once again, and again, and again, not getting past the second round of 14 C2B pull-ups in 14.2 (the bane of my existence) Thanks for the encouragement Kelly Edwards. All I had to show for it were ruined hands for a week.
Finishing my yard. Not directly related to CFL, but indirectly it will provide fun come October when we have the 3rd annual killer croquet tournament in my yard! Get ready!
But truly the best parts were my conversations with Local members and getting to know everyone at Local better. You guys are amazing! Looking forward to many months of sweat, tears, and great times….and maybe a little blood…
Speaking of blood…guess which photo is my favorite?!?
