    Dear Team:

    Today I gathered about 8 bags of clothes from MPH and put them into the back of my car — and that was only HALF of what you fine people donated. Good work!

    But we’re not done yet, and I know many of you have not brought your food/clothes to our beloved Crossfit box.

    So, here’s another reminder: bring more bring more bring more. I’d especially love to see some food this time, since it’s been mostly clothes. And remember, just one more week of this…

    I can stop by the Teet and get a case of wine. Who’s in?

    • roselenaramirez1 | December 10, 2009 at 10:27 pm

      I am.

      • Rob | December 10, 2009 at 11:57 pm

        I would say likely everybody who responded yesterday is in. Plus likely a few more. Thanks for taking care of that!

      • bibihan | December 11, 2009 at 9:31 am

        me too.

        • meghanmcnally | December 11, 2009 at 10:24 am

    • mchofia | December 11, 2009 at 10:09 am

      I’m in

      • operationyetifit | December 11, 2009 at 2:13 pm

        ok. i count 8 people. I’m gonna grab 1 case. I’ll make it a mix case if I can, but otherwise go with a decent mid-body red.

        Is there there anyone that wants a white?

        • tbferg | December 11, 2009 at 3:56 pm

          Too late to make it 9, instead of 8?

  3. Mrs. Finkenstadt | December 11, 2009 at 8:38 am

    I’m in, Sak.

      Big kudos to Meghan who did this as prescribed and crushed it.

      • swimdra | December 11, 2009 at 12:01 pm

        Agreed. Great job this morning Megan! And good job Joe for doing it as prescribed. Those were some heavy HSCs.


      • meghanmcnally | December 11, 2009 at 4:29 pm

        thanks guys!

  5. Rob | December 11, 2009 at 9:44 am

    From the comments I’ve heard, the party tonight is not coat and tie or otherwise formal, right?

    • swimdra | December 11, 2009 at 10:37 am

      I was wondering that too since right now my plan is to wear jeans….


    • coach | December 11, 2009 at 11:11 am

      Casual, please. Please. I appreciate the sentiment, but you have actually been inside of our gym, right?

      Though, if anyone shows up in a tux or prom-style evening gown (tux, Neil), we might be able to immunize you against something terrible (except infectious diseases). I’m just saying…


      • Need A Bionic Back | December 11, 2009 at 11:26 am

        I love that you specifically directed Neil on tux v. gown. As Neil likes to say, “I’m just sayin”

  6. Rob | December 11, 2009 at 9:46 am

    Mike and Jess – my office chair is a “CXO” – it doesn’t have a model number, but it appears to be the “CXO Manager” from the pictures from the web. It does not have the weird neck attachment. I’ve had it about 4 years now and really like it. But I would try a bunch of different options and see which one works best for you.

    • Jessica | December 11, 2009 at 9:50 am

      Great info and advice, Rob, thanks.

    • Mr. LovePig | December 11, 2009 at 11:50 am

      indizzle, thanks man.

  7. IWant2GetStronger | December 11, 2009 at 1:00 pm

    I dont own a “gown” 🙂 but for those that wonder I’ll be wearing Jeans , just saying!!!

  8. coach | December 11, 2009 at 1:20 pm


    For some unknown reason, tomorrow’s workout was accidentally posted at 11a today (we have these set to post at 10p each night). Because of this, the WOD you saw will not be the WOD we complete tomorrow…


    • train2live | December 11, 2009 at 1:28 pm

      Excellent! Then there is still hope that we might see that one during the week sometime. Yeah!!

      Dave O.

      • coach | December 11, 2009 at 1:31 pm

        Or, if you keep acknowledging you saw it, it may never come out—ever.


  9. jdowen | December 11, 2009 at 1:59 pm

    I can wear a tux… what do I get immunized against?

  10. Tank | December 11, 2009 at 2:18 pm

    Pre-party at ChurchKey around 5-5:30? Any interest?

    • Need A Bionic Back | December 11, 2009 at 2:30 pm

      donde esta ChurchKey?

    • Jen M. | December 11, 2009 at 2:43 pm

      5:00? that’s so far away – you know I don’t really work past 3-3:30 on Fridays… haha

      Churchkey’s on 14th, a couple blocks south of Church, near Rhode Island Ave.

  11. Tank | December 11, 2009 at 3:02 pm

    I think Jen and I will be there, feel free to drop by!


    • Mrs. Finkenstadt | December 11, 2009 at 3:32 pm

      I might swing by. BTW, love your avi Tank!
