Dawn’s Athlete Profile is posted on The CrossFit Games site:
Dawn – In the 3rd pull of a hang… yes, hang clean with 185lbs.
One of the dumbest, most horrid, moronic, crappy, insane, and frankly stupid myths of fitness is that if women lift "heavy" they’ll get HUGE.   If you’re not sure or don’t believe it, check out this video of Natalie Wolcoff Burgerner snatching 98kg (216lbs).  She holds the US record in the 62kg (136lbs) with a 101kg (221lbs) Snatch.  Her unofficial PR is 106kg (233lbs)!!
 Natatlie is also pictured on Monday’s post…  still think you’ll get big from moving weights ladies?  NO WAY!  Strong is beautiful.  Now let’s get serious!!
Today we bid farewell to Hub.  He’s found other opportunity in Charlotte. 
Hub’s first WOD with us was "Fran".  So to send him off proper, he get’s her as he goes.
Come back and train with us anytime Brother! 

"Fran"  21 – 15 – 9 reps for time of…

thrusters (95lbs – M / 65lbs – F)
pull ups

    Thanks for the well wishes…I'll be in there at about 5pm so if anybody can make it then, that would be awesome…and I won't be warming up for the usual hour because I have to get back to the place to keep on packing!

    Hub, good luck on all of your endeavors. I'll miss our evening banter. Keep in touch. I'll be in around 6 because I know you won't be anywhere close to leaving by then. I wonder if CrossFit Charlotte has a warm up time limit…
