Thankfully, thus far we do not know anyone who was physically impacted by the blast. Even though our lives personally are not dramatically different, it still feels traumatizing. I still get that icky feeling in the morning waking up and realizing that this really happened, and it happened on the streets that we call home.
We realize that CrossFit Southie is an escape for all of you. It is a place that you can go to not think about anything other than the barbell and the pull-up bar, which is why you have seen only positive things on our blog. However, we have a powerful community and it is time to resource our community near and far to make a difference for a local family.
On Saturday we will be doing a WOD to honor those who have passed, those seriously injured, those who saw horrific things, the first responders, the local nurses and doctors, the City of Boston, and America our country.
4 Squat Clean and Jerks (185,125)
15 Chest to Bar Pull-ups
13 Burpee lateral jumps
After 5 rounds are complete:
Your time is your total time for all 5 rounds plus the 800m sprint.
Level 3- (155,105)
Level 2- (135,85)
Level 1- (105,55),4 Rounds
Since the Richard Family are our neighbors, and because they have been so dramatically affected we have chose them to fundraise for specifically. If you plan to do the workout on Saturday please offer a donation before or after doing so. Every little bit counts. If everyone just gives $5.00 then from the box alone we will be able to raise at least $2500.00. Between the funeral costs and the medical bills they will need every penny . If you are from a local box and would like to participate with us on Saturday, please make a $20.00 donation and come and WOD with us. Pass this post on to every CrossFitter you know.
