Great day at the gym yesterday with PRs all over the place! Cindy has been a staple in CrossFit from before I started, going on 5 years, and for good reason – She’s brutal. Steph crushed more than 29 rounds which includes taking a full round away after losing track and not being 100% sure that she did it.
The gym also saw an all time PR with 84 people through. We’d flirted with mid and high 70s for many weeks but finally beat that 80 mark yesterday.
Event – MURPH
May 18th we’ll be holding a special running of “Murph” at 9AM. This event is dual purpose. Andy Dolvin, 2nd Lt. USMC, will be leaving us for training in Virginia. Andy has come a long way since starting at MTM and we could not be prouder of his service. When he asked to do Murph before he left the only question was “what date”.
In conjunction with Andy’s request we’re going to do a fundraiser. Ricky and Ted have been mainstays at MTM for a long time after joining to increase their work performance as firefighters. Behind the scenes MTM has helped them get their entire firehouse with their fitness. With summer upon us they’ve lost their usual workout space so we thought it would be cool to raise a little money for some basic equipment.
Bottom line: Murph at 9AM on May 18th – Cost $10 donation.
