Awesome! Is your name Sarah? (I don't want to assume that's what your username means.) Do you work out at one of the local CF gyms?

Oh, cool! I haven't made it over there yet but hear great things about it. That's awesome that you've been doing this for as long as you have. I began on June 17, 2009, so just over one year. I work out at BackYard CrossFit (website goes by the same name) with Jenny Providence (of the formerly Providence Institute). It's near Tucson and 5th. Another friend, Jen Higgins, recently opened the CrossFit Works gym over on Tucson and Broadway. So both of these gyms are very central.

Did you go to the Winter Games at CrossFit Works? There were a bunch of people there from the Northwest gym.

awesome

I always love seeing other gyms. when I visit my family back east I love to go to the crossfit gym there.

I didn't go to the winter games unfortunately; I don't get to attend a lot of the things I wish I could. It's just a bit challenging with my 3 & 5 year old, my husband who works way too much, and a bunch of other excuses

I'm hoping as the kids get older.. and as they both start going to school (L starts kindergarten august 18th and E starts school for the first time - preschool - too) that new possiblities and flexibilities emerge. With the hours my husband works and no family here, sometimes I feel like a single mom.

anyway, we should get together sometime. do you like to run? me and my friends have a weekly running date at reid park on thursdays at 7am. we run anywhere from an 8:30 min/mile to a 9:30 min/mile. I know that the double jogger with 100+lbs of kids slows me down, for sure! We usually do 2-3 miles, followed with coffee (the best reward there is, if you ask me!)

That sounds like fun! I live only a few blocks away from Reid Park and love to go running there. I will check in with you sometime soon to join in. Thanks for the invite!
