    Wow! I love seeing that! I’ve been going back & forth between a 35 & 40 KB Since I wasn’t sure I could swing a 40 for a long workout but guess I officially swing a 40 now. Yay!!

    Great class today & good work 0530s! Thanks for the push Fil! Thanks for the pistol tips afterward, & for the awesome class Coach Grace!

    Love the photo!

    Yup Southpaw, you officially have to use 40 on WODs now.

    Can’t remember, doing a WOD that early hurt my brain.

    Dave Castro was my Level 1 Cert instructor back in April 2008 and Miranda took the same cert with me. It was at CrossFit San Diego, where CJ Martin (former CFSD coach) also happen to be assisting the HQ instructors on the same cert. Lots of other CF old school bigwigs were there, too 🙂 I was fortunate to hang out with them to watch the UFC fight that Saturday.

    Lindsey Smith came up to me at the first inaugural regional in Texas in Fort Worth at GSX CrossFit. We reconnected when I found out that she worked at Flour Daniel in Sugar Land. She was a regular at ACF when we were still at Suite M-14 and as we moved to occupy Building I. I also remember vividly Jim help polish her Muscle-Up skills at M-14.

    Acquaintances turned into real friendship as the years go by 🙂
