Burpee Box Jump


For those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting Kelsey, she is a student at Tulane University down in New Orleans. Kelsey had an internship at Harvard this summer, which is what brought her to us.When we first met Kelsey back in June we had no idea how much she would become a part of the Southie community in 2 months time. With little to no experience Crossfitting before Southie, she amazed us with her gymnastic skills, strength, and tenacity. She came in with the mindset of a competitor, and has brought her “A” game every class. On Saturday Kelsey is leaving us for the school year; we are devastated to see her go. The coaches here at Southie will miss her bright smile, eagerness to learn. and her passion for CrossFit. Come back next Summer Kelsey!!!!!

    wod 27:16 – actually thought at one point that if the truck, which was backing up in front of me, RAN over me, I would have a good excuse not to do any more burpee box jumps. Then I figured Maze would somehow no rep me- so I just continued around the truck… thanks Maze πŸ™‚

    Loving these comments! Happy Birthday Kelsey! We did not hang much but you always kicked my butt when we did. Melburg took his shirt off with me once when we were partners in a WOD, one word- unforgettable!
