Half Marathon, Full Success

Sunday, October 10th, 2010 (10/10/10) marked the 10th anniversary of the Boston Athletic Association Half Marathon.  CrossFit Fenway had several athletes take on the “rolling” 13.1 mile course.  It was a chilly start to the race.  While other runners were shivering, and bemoaning the hilly coarse, your CFF teammates got after it.  The effort was impressive, as everyone I saw not only finished, but finished looking relatively comfortable.I’m very proud of all of you that chose to take on this challenge, and gave it your all.

Finishing strong. An after photo of some of the CrossFit Fenway athletes looking good after 13.1 miles.

  1. WOD: 18min and change (too f-ed up after to take in my time) – thanks to Stacey for not letting me break up my burpees – it sucked but it was awesome…

  2. Thanks for you wonderful people who came out to cheer; even though I was too much in The Zone to spot you, knowing you were out there helped push me along 🙂

  3. Nice job to those of you who completed the B.A.A. Half!

    Ugh… Today was tough. Ever have one of those mornings where you feel like you’ve been run over by a Mack Truck? Yeah… today was one of those days. I was out of it as soon as I woke up, and it never got any better. My head and body was just in a fog. It’s too bad – I was really looking forward to this WOD, but my body said no.

    A truly pathetic 21:36… And I can’t even RX it since I walked some of the 400s.

    I gotta get right for Wednesday.

  4. Great job yesterday, everyone who ran!!

    Thrusters: 35kg, which is my 1 rep press max. Gotta work more on doing a thruster rather than front squatting and then pressing. Stupid hips.

    WOD: 19:35…no idea what happened on the last run. I just kind of found myself drifting along, even though there was more left in me. Not so much after the end…

  5. Great job everyone who ran the half marathon! That’s a great photo.
    Thrusters: 61kg
    WOD: 13:28 – 400m runs are no problem, and I was somehow able to do all burpee sets unbroken. They still sucked though.
