If you find yourself in the Baltimore-Annapolis corridor, or if you are looking for a great way to spend your Saturday, head to CrossFit BWI and cheer Steve on.

    Thanks for the plug guys!
    I have three goals:
    1. Stay Healthy (don’t get hurt)
    2. Completely empty the tank during each of the 3 events – I can’t answer yes to the question, “could I have pushed harder?”
    3. No DNF’s or DFL’s (did not finish, or dead fucking last). Last year I got a DNF on an event that called for double unders- the shame was an excellent motivator to practice them!

    -the first event will be a strength test (shaking fist as if rolling dice – “c’mon OH squats and please no OH press!”)
    -second will be a triplet or a couplet (there will be no named wod’s drawn)
    -third will be a chipper

    I need an MPH shirt!

    I’ll post news on this site as it arises.

    Keep Squattin’!

    Steve D.

      Steve –

      The word of the day is “rawr.” Use liberally.

      Good luck, man. Kill it.


    • Rob | October 15, 2009 at 9:49 am

      Good luck! And you do need a t-shirt!

  4. train2live | October 15, 2009 at 8:56 am

    Go get ’em, Steve! I can’t be there in person, but know that I will be there in spirit cheering you on. I look forward to hearing how it went.

    Sounds like a great time, Steve. Enjoy it!

    thanks 7a for all your cheering this morning! i’m going to count completion of today’s WOD without box jump induced panic attack or death (or falling down and causing giant bruises) a success!

    • swimdra | October 15, 2009 at 4:49 pm

      Thanks Jen for being my box jumping buddy this morning. It helped to do it with someone who has the same mental issues with the box as I do. And neither of us face planted or in other ways injured ourselves! Sucess!

      • Rob | October 15, 2009 at 11:24 am

        Thanks. You too! After four straight days, I’m painfully aware of the location of every muscle in my body. Ouch.
