après (a′prā′; Fr ȧ pre′)
after: often used in hyphenated compounds: an après-ski party
I had a vision of what Friday nights at 209 Columbus was going to be. It is turning into that vision. Athletes are competing as other athletes and friends cheer them on. The vibe is loud and the beats are dirty ( Dirty Beats Jade! ) and at 7pm, on Friday at 209 Columbus Ave we take on 13.2 As I write this I have no idea what the Open WOD will be but show up at 7pm to compete or cheer or both. Together we can motivate the athletes and share in their pain and triumph as they battle the WOD. I can see Russell Crowe screaming “Are you not entertained?!” Afterwards most of you know the drill but if you don’t we hang out until 9pm and then at 9 03 and 30seconds we take off for a lounge called Brahmin which is right next door and one the most popular places in the city. Everyone is invited but if you have questions email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
For those who didn’t do as well as they wanted week 1 in the Opens and anyone new struggling with Crossfit here’s a little something….
