Sometimes there are things in life you can’t plan for. Other times there are events you can be completely prepared for, like coaching a few extra classes, and you should be ready, because you’re the one that makes the coaching schedule, but somehow you’re still caught off guard. That was me today. Fortunately, as we’re often reminded, the greatest adaptation to CrossFit takes place between the ears. I was mentally nimble, quickly able to wrap my head around the long day ahead, and made the appropriate adjustments to get through. Plus, it’s really not that bad. In fact, our Monday evening classes were awesome, and it was great to see some faces I haven’t in a while.

As some of you may know, David Kelts’ brother is currently serving in Afghanistan and he’s taking part in collecting holiday cards for hospitalized and injured veterans. The American Red Cross has teamed up with Pitney Bowes in a campaign called “Holidays for Heroes” and David purchased a bunch of holiday greeting cards and left them at CrossFit Fenway. Please feel free to sign 1 or 10 of them and place in the envelope, he’ll take care of mailing the bunch Friday, December 9th! It’s a simple way to say thanks and happy holidays to those who’ve lost so much while serving.
The 2012 CrossFit Games season is coming. CrossFit Fenway is formally beginning our preparations this Saturday, December 10th at 8 AM with a meeting for all athletes interested in competing. Please e-mail Eric with any questions, or if you would like to participate, but cannot make it.
