True Colors

I had the fortunate pleasure of spending the last 2 weeks with a great guy. Matt Quante joined us for the 0600 Advanced Bootcamp class while home on leave from the desert. He brought it hard straight outta the gate and didn't let up. Inspiring in more ways than one. He's touched us all in a special way and will be in our thoughts as he goes wheels up for another visit overseas. Can't wait to have him back in the fall. -RP

Media Marvels

Grinding out the sandbag carry at CrossFit Games 2009. Think these arse-kickers perform on a low-fat diet?....think again.

Found myself lounging around the Shed licking my wounds last night after Coach and I finished up our date with "Diane". As I laid back in the lounge chair throwing back full dose of Surge, I decided to turn on the dumb box to see what the rest of the world was doing. In an effort to keep my horizons extended to their limits, I reluctantly switched over to the national news and immediately found myself bombarded with the useless jabber they're known for. Every story presented with only the facts to support their biased views. Much happier when I sprinted my way to the Golf Channel and found highlights of the 1977 British Open. "Dual in the Sun" between Jack and Tom.

Happy to see another great post from Dr. Eades this morning with a similar theme about media mis-leadings.
