Any advice for people just getting started or new to CrossFit?
Keep showing up, it gets easier. The improvements make it worth it!
What a big Saturday! Starting off with the HERO WOD “Chloe” honoring a little girl who gave her life for another… then the rest of the day was full of celebration honoring a couple in our CFR family!
Not enough pics of the Josh/Sara post marriage harvest celebration, but definitely some great memories to put in the books. With 100-200 people showing up throughout the night, to sit around the fire and catch up made for a great celebration of not just the CFR family but also Josh and Sara’s marriage! What a blessed weekend!
