Find out more about the CrossFit Open at The CrossFit Games website.
I will be participating in the BarBells for Boobs Campaign. This campaign raises awareness for early detection, mamograms, and support for breast cancer. Please help Penny and I reach our goal of $200.00 by October 12th!
Here is more information on the event from CrossFit Unparalleled:
PLEASE join us for an amazing cause and incredible fun!
BARBELLS AND BOOBS!!
SATURDAY OCT. 12th!! WOD & BBQ/POTLUCK
Seriously, those have got to be two of many people’s favorite “B” words – WOOHOOO!
Ok, I’m not just being overly excited here, there’s a real message. First up is “barbells” …most specifically how to get them over your head. Now is the time to get with your coaches and focus on these movements. Use your resources!
Next – it’s about “boobs” …or rather Saturday Oct. 12th’s Barbells For Boobs fundraiser event! We will WOD and have a BBQ style Potluck!
October is breast cancer awareness month. This is an event that is cooler than a run or a ride or a swim or all three of those put together….because you don’t have to do any of those activities. It is an event that has a small fee ($20) which is raised 100% for a non-profit organization. You will be participating in the crossfit WOD “Helen Meets Grace”. Enough said…then sign up at our box or on Facebook. Anyone can do it…you can take your time and have fun or go real fast and kick your own ass….either way…..WEAR PINK and just know that your working out to save boobies! And if you have some…show them off for the work out so we know what we are working out for, LOL! (The guys made me add that part!)
The event is going to be held on Saturday, October 12th starting at 9am. If you really can’t make it to the event and would like to “support” (hehe) the cause…we are taking donations from now and throughout the weekend of the event. Remember….anyone can do this…it’s a great way to get people in who say they want to try it out- and they can meet the gang- and “support” (haha) a good cause. TaTa for now…(HA)
Ok, before anyone gets too riled up – we aren’t asking anyone to literally “show them off.” I mean it’s cool with me, personally – but probably not appropriate. What I’m actually saying is that some of the girls will be hitting the WOD in pink sports bras. If you’ve got one- run it! If you’re not comfortable working out in a sports bra that’s ok… you can get in the spirit by running a pink tank or something … Tutus are cool too!
