We had so many awesome things happen for us the past couple weeks. Here's a recap: Marian Crockett ran the Boston Marathon in the sweltering heat of 90 degrees! She finished in 3:38 and most importantly, she beat her local rival by more than 14 minutes!!! Way to go Marian!!! We all know how hard it is to run that distance LET ALONE in the heat and humidity!! We are all very proud of you!!! Mary and Matt Ryan welcomed sweet baby Maggie on April the 13th. Momma and baby are doing fine and Daddy is smiling ear to ear. The crazy thing is Mary was training CrossFit at 5am Thursday and did a tough long workout with zero problem. Little did we know that by Friday early afternoon her labor would start and by the end of the day she would be holding her CrossFit baby!!! I can't WAIT to meet her!!! Less important than the two I completed a 13 mile trail run that kicked my ASS last year! I not only finished the whole course, but felt great the whole way!! Yay CrossFit and trail running friends!! Here's a look at the PRs that you have been hitting......now get out there and RUN or enjoy the day!!! Carlos PRd in a full clean lifting 185x2 reps, 165x12 reps He also PRd in a front squat getting 215 x 3 reps easily!! Michele PRd in a full clean lifting 85x3, 90x1, 63x12 reps She also Prd in a front squat getting 93x3 reps fairly easy too :) Bo Prd in his split jerk getting 150x1 rep, and 125x3 reps!! then turned around and got a bench press Pr 150x 5 reps!! He also had a amazing training week last week and I was throwing hard wods at him!! Way to go Bo!! Teresa Prd in her front squat getting 100x3 and then got a pr in her sumo deadlift 115x12 reps Tiffany got a pr in her front squat as well getting 100x3, and her sumo deadlift was 113x12 reps!! Teresa also got a PR in her shoulder press 3 rep at 70x3 We've been focusing on endurance workouts lately and they seem to have been paying off. I can throw a long workout at you all and you can just keep on going!!! This next cycle of training we will be hitting some strength and some testing. Getting max reps for body weight movements, as well as some timed events. I KNOW you all are excited about that and can't wait to see whats waiting for you when you walk through the gym doors. RACE UPDATES!!!! I have a few races that I would like to get a head count on if you are in. Saturday, May 12th is the CHICK CHASER 5k race. A LOT of fun and couples can enter!!The race starts at 3pm followed by a huge party in the park. May 20th Surfers Path Half Marathon, 10k, 5k RACE!!! This is the first year for this event and I think we ALL should go for it and support the host.

I know you all work very hard in the gym during the week....and I know what MOST of you do during the weekend : it involves 2 wheels and running shoes. But if you aren't running in Nisene Marks, or barreling downhill on your mountain bike or riding like the wind on your road bike....what do you like to do?
Here's a great photo of Bo Janowski. He spends some weekend doing Search and Rescue Training. When somebody is lost out there, Bo is one of the great group of people that look high and low until you are found. This is a great pic of how muddy his training can get! Thanks for doing what you do to help others Bo....!!!
Some of you races the Santa Cruz Half Marathon on Sunday. Post to comments how you did!!
Also...I LAGGED at giving major kudos to Cari Martin!!! She finished a 50k recently in the crazy fast time of 5 hours plus some change!! I have NO idea how the heck you did that sooo fast! Must be CrossFit ;) I will post pictures of your races as son as you pass them to me.
I'm so blessed to have such an amazing group of people that push their limits every time they train and are just great people . Thank you all for making my life so full.
