42 to 48 is a tradition that started during my time at US CrossFit. Hard to believe but this will be my age for the coming year. I use these workouts on my birthday for my own personal benchmark. Unfortunately as I get older the rep count won’t decrease. This year I will be skiing on birthday just as I have the last 42 years. I have only missed two days on snow during that time frame. One year I was on travel in Australia the other was last year just 6 days after the birth of Scarlett. Saturday we will say goodbye to my best friends mother Sallie Kittredge. My Aunt Sallie was like a mother to me growing up. Sallie was full of life and always the life of the party. With a great laugh and passion for the arts, theater, travel and love for her 4 children and many grand and great grandchildren. Aunt Sal I will have a run and toast a glass in your honor on Saturday. Thank you for being in my life. Much love to you and the Kittredge Clan back in AZO. We will miss you. Danny Miller
Now lets get down to the business of this wod! Like I said I am sorry not to be there to see you all perform this one. Your focus is “Execution” Don’t shave reps rather count your reps. If you loose track of your rep count then do an extra 10 reps just saying! Execute the reps like it is “the open”. If you Do Not get your chin over the bar or arms lockout in the bottom of the pull up? don’t count it! Bobby will give you a through description of each movement standard. Do your best and nail each rep. If your fast but missing ROM or slow with diminishing intensity? Then learn to grease the groove and get yourself right. Thank you for your efforts members of 2120. I really enjoy working with you all. Have a great one and “put out”. Sincerely CDM
P.S: If you tip a beer after the wod at any of the class times Friday? Please say “Here’s to Aunt Sallie” Because she would be you’re A. Sallie too if she met you even one time.
