This is why we CrossFit

[caption id="attachment_1368" align="aligncenter" width="660"] This is Rich Froning, this is not me.[/caption] This past weekend was the Reebok CrossFit Games, and man were they exciting! Well, they were exciting for me, my wife and those of us who really enjoy doing CrossFit. I don't think I can call it a sport, but that doesn't make it or the athletes any less spectacular.  Lets go back one year. I had been doing P90x steadily for roughly 75 days. Its a 90 day program (hence the name), and was determined to finish. On day 78 I had a car accident... how did I not post about that?! An accident that left me…

What a weekend

This really has been a great weekend. My amazing wife ran in The Color Run - Atlanta (I'll let her talk more about that), the weather was wonderful, I got to help Chase with a school project that turned out tenfold better than expected and it was Wrestlemania! [caption id="attachment_947" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Solar System"][/caption] First up, the school project.

We wouldn't get that kind of ice/snow again for the rest of the year. I'm actually hoping that we get one again, only this time we'll have a lil' baby with us. February brought us Gracie. A Great Dane that would put us to the test. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taFR6LzQ2rM[/youtube] Neither one of us had ever owned such a beast. She was one of the sweetest and happy dogs ever, but damn was she a handful. After many…

[caption id="attachment_650" align="aligncenter" width="614" caption="Locust Grove Mudcats"][/caption] Yesterday was opening day for the Locust Grove Little League. For weeks Chase has been going to practice, out in the yard throwing the ball or catching the ball or hitting or swinging, or running or anything he could do to prep for "the big game". He didn't get his uniform until the morning of so he was a bit concerned about that in addition to all the butterflies about being on the field with all the people watching. As it got closer and closer to the actual game you could tell that it was all he could think about. He was ready!…
