The gala is going awesome…

Thanks for asking.  If you are reading this in the morning and still recovering, then you should probably stay there.  If you are ready to go and in the mood to tackle a complete monster of a workout, then head on in.  Feel free to deplete yourselves in the WOD only to replete yourselves on brunch.  The only thing that I ask of you is that you do not tear your hands!  If you need to scale so that you don’t rip, please do so!

It’s mostly because I enjoy high-fiving you guys,

We were few…

And we hung out.  And we saw each other almost every day.  And we shared similar passions the same way we shared frustrations.  We coached together.  We worked out together.  We competed together.  We learned together.  We opened and we closed and we dedicated together.  We had meetings and we argued the same way we had parties and we laughed.   And now that you are leaving, we just won’t be “we” without you.

And you will be missed together,

They are hundreds…

The members that you got to know.  The members that came in and learned something.  The members whose reps were counted (and NO rep’ed).  The members that moved better.  The members who challenged and rewarded.  The members that PR’ed.  The members that lost weight.  The members that hate to see you go because their lives were changed.  You did that.

And they are thankful,

You have to care…

You can know every part of the body.  You can know all the details about every lift.  You can be an amazing athlete.  You can play the best music.  You can be published.  You can be perfect.  None of it matters if you don’t care.

And she cared,

We were asked to pose…

A book called “Dancers among us” came out a few years back.  Former RCFBB member, Lisa Cole is the dancer / barbell of focus and she asked the coaching staff to help her out in her shoot.  Coach Justin, Erin, and I were subbing in as models (the super kind).  Just some of the quirky things Coach Erin did at Reebok CrossFit Back Bay.

They got our good side,
