Today I ran my fastest half marathon EVER by five minutes. Thank you so much for all the support and coaching over the last year. I am insanely thankful and constantly in awe of everything that goes on at MPH. You and the other coaches are truly inspiring. When I got home, I did some pull-ups. Because I can. That was my other goal last year….guess I need to come up with something new for 2014!

I wanted to write a few lines to thank you for all the support you have given me over the last few years in general but, in particular, for the marathon this last Sunday. Personally, running a marathon was a big milestone for me, so I thought the Marine Corps Marathon was a good excuse to share a few lines with you that are probably long overdue.

I think no training could have prepared me physically or mentally more than working out at MPH for the last few years. You have made me reach levels of physical intensity that I was certain I couldn’t get even close to and a mental strength to keep going when I feel that I have not much more to go on that keeps surprising me.

I feel really lucky that, by pure chance, I ended up being part of this great MPH community that you have built. It has given me much more than just the best physical form I’ve ever had. It has given me very good friends.

Thank you to the MPH community for your support and friendship. Thank you to Mel and BK for your dedication, day in and day out, to your athletes, for creating such a unique and amazing environment, for your insistence on quality and teamwork. Thank you, more often than not, for being the best part of my day. I have made more friends and memories than I could have anticipated.

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you all as a group and individually for such an amazing year. I am constantly surprised and elated with how you’ve helped me grow and challenge myself. Your patience and encouragement has gone a long way.

You’ve helped me understand that the limits of one’s body aren’t always what they seem. You have all built something special and important with MPH. I’m looking forward to more productive years going forward. So again, my thanks and appreciation for your hard work and dedication.

I was in DC over the weekend and contacted CrossFit MPH in hopes of ‘dropping-in’ (wanted to complete ‘14.2’). I chose their box because they were open early and their webpage was well put together.

From their initial email response, to the greeting when I walked in the door, to the advice re: technique, to the SUPPORT I received from everyone when I completed the WOD…all were AWESOME (on top of all of that, I got an email from the owner letting me know I had left my gloves there)!

Thanks for the kind hospitality. If I lived in DC, I would be a member of your place!

I am SO jazzed at doing my first handstand pushups tonight!!! I’m literally walking around feeling 3 inches taller. Kudos to you for creating the kind of atmosphere where I feel safe enough to really experiment and push myself. I am always SO elated at every small improvement, or when I can land a major breakthrough—like tonight’s! Thank you for all that you do!
