    Hello MPH friends,

    You may have asked yourself, “Where the heck is Ivy?” the past few months. Though I probably flatter myself to think you might have thought this, I wanted to give you an update. Since having Graham, I have had to come to the hard realization that, logistically, MPH is not very convenient, and in fact is nearly impossible, for me to get to on weekdays. After a really nice conversation with Mel, I’ve decided to put my membership on hold indefinitely and figure out a way to be an MPH ambassador in the wider fitness community (create a ripple if you will; see e.g. http://library.crossfit.com/free/pdf/CFJ_07_2013_Ripple_Cooper6.pdf). To that end, I’ve joined Gold’s gym so that I can do the MPH WODs near my office. Today was my first attempt at dropping of Graham at daycare, doing a WOD, and getting into the office by 9:00. I have to work out the kinks, though, because I only got in 3 rounds of the 250’s. BUT, on the other hand, I ran into former MPHer Koji Hirota! There are also several trainers there that are CrossFitters and instruct in CF style. Though I will not be doing personal training, I guess I am happy to know that, for a Globo, I’ve found a place that is CF friendly. They have a platform and some old-school (rubber on the outside of metal; aka “real”) bumper plates, wall balls, boxes, rowers, etc. No really good pull up station or rings though. They do have a bizarre rope pull machine, which I thought was kinda cool.

    I plan on following the MPH programming and to post my WOD scores here. I want to remain involved in the community as much as possible. Since the fall is goal setting season at MPH, here is mine: to come to MPH for the Open competition WODs as a competitor. I hope to come out and cheer for you all at your various competitions along the way, too. I have to say, I really miss everyone and the friendly, competitive environment of the box.

    Take care for now,

    Ivy F.

      Ivy, you will be greatly missed. Your spirit and enthusiasm are a part of what makes our community so unique. But glad to know that you’ll be out spreading the good word and that we’ll see you from time-to-time. Best of luck with everything.

      xoxo

    Ivy, focus on Graham and sustainable routine. MPH will always be around when you’re able to make it back. In the meantime, we will miss you.
