    Big thanks to Will K. for the Powerlifting Seminar on Saturday. It is always a great experience to have Will come in from Charleston and deliver his knowledge and experience. Great job on all of the PR’s crew. Thanks to John, Bruce and the CFG athletes who were able to make the trip to Wilmington. It was great watching both CFW and CFG go head to head this weekend. NC will be well represented at the Mid Atlantic Regional in two weeks.

    Josh nailed it. After attending Will K’s seminar all those things I had been hearing from t. and others clicked and Bam! a PR. If you are seeking success you have to look everywhere for it.
    Congrats to all the folks this weekend. The energy in the gym was incredible!

    I can’t believe it has been a year already since MSG Benjamin F. Bitner was killed. I remember meeting his wife and son at the fund raiser last year. I hope they are doing OK. Crazy that it’s been a year already. His little boy was so sweet and cute. Poor little guy growing up without his daddy 🙁

    My thoughts go out to the Bitner family today.

    Thanks to CFG for making it down this weekend. It’s always good to get some competition in preparation. Congrats to Dawn, Scott, and Melissa on their PRs.

    Jude, your story is quite the testimony. If you didn’t read it yesterday, go back and read it and put your struggles in perspective. Thank you so much for sharing! I think it’s safe to say after conquering the battles you have, crossfit is a piece of cake. Most of the time 😉

    I remember the fundraiser last year as well though it seems like so long ago. My thoughts and prayers are with the Bitner family and friends on this sad but commemorative day.

    Fire is running through the veins of our regional competitors. Can’t wait to light the match in a week and a half!!!
