The Kure Beach Tri went very well.  Congratulations to Breck, Clair, Darren, Joel, and Jennings on completing their first Triathlon.  But they didn’t just complete it, they clocked in at some very respectable times… especially considering they had only three weeks of notice before running out into the ocean!!  And since Clair didn’t drown, we can assume his swimming improved a little since Wednesday.

The idea behind doing this Tri was to prove that CrossFit works and can prepare you to participate in any sport you choose…  even endurance events.  Sprint Triathlons are alot of fun.  If you’ve never done one, check out www.setupevents.comand see if it’s something you might enjoy.

And a huge thanks to Don and Olympia for taking photos and to Andy, Fitz, Dawn, Nancy, Julie for coming out to support the us!

    how about this for feedback "clair didnt drown @ the tri" n yes the fenders on my ten speed were catching the wind!!!

  2. Sensei says:

    Good job on the race guys, how was everyones times? CF should def be closed through the weekend! Should mondays WOD be called "variety mondays"? ha!

  3. Troy says:

    The cert in VA Beach was awesome. To all of you that know Karen/ "Spiderchic" she is same-whinny. She was at the cert still complaining about her right ankle. Additionally, Hunter from Coastal was there. Awesome cert though.

    I'm down for you guys closing over the Holiday. Would it be possible to post some exercises those days that don't require the gym. Maybe a 5K or 10K…150 burpees…10 100yd sprints. Some fun ones.

  5. me says:

    Congrats on the Cert Troy. Who was the primary instructor? I'm glad to hear that Hunter got certified. It's good that Coastal is getting a certified guy in there… maybe they'll start fixing their clients' form and become a more legit CF. And Karen is very hard on herself… hell of hard charger!

  6. Troy says:

    The primary instructor was Pat from CFVB. Andrew from Quantico, Maggie and Jeff from Fairfax were the other instructors. Dave was there taking pictures and Tony Blaur was there telling us about his program. Congrats to those that finished the tri this weekend. I wish I could have raced against you all. Maybe in September at the YMCA tri.

    some of us could meet at the loop or somewhere to do sprints sprints are not that fun by yourself

  9. Sensei says:

    I completely agree with Nix, Close the gym. But have WOD's posted that we can do outside the gym with no equip.

    2 rds for time of:

    50 yd sprint
    50 yd duck walk
    20 push up
    20 sit up
    50 yd sprint
    50 yd lunges
    20 push up
    20 sit up

    It SUCKS!!

    Hub, if he's a Jarhead and knows enough about CF, then we speed it up. Maybe even waive the intro.

  11. Hub says:

    Close the gym over for Fri, Sat, Sun…Justin, it's not like you are going to do a WOD, go to Gold's and do your bench press there…I've got a buddy that is coming in tonight, he wants to do all three of his intros before Friday, is that possible?

  12. Don says:

    Alright guys I just signed up for the Pinehurst Triathlon….oh boy…..it gives me about 3 months to prepare….with your help…..I'm open for any suggestions

  13. clair says:

    the only advice i can give you is learn how to swim better than me (or a rock same skill level)because its very difficult to recover on the ocean floor as i almost found out

  14. Hub says:

    Classic tactic towards being "that guy" that takes pictures of hot women…don't act like Joel, who is barely recognizeable in the back, is the real target of this picture…classic move.

  15. Shawn K says:

    lol… yeah I saw the pic and thought to myself… "but Joel is a guys name… this is a pic of a girl"

  16. Troy says:

    At least he selected a hot chic with nice abs. I do not know if she wants us to look at her belly button or something else with the camera bag bisecting something.
