100 Days of Training Strong(wo)Man

Wow, time flies when you’re having fun! I can’t believe it’s been 100 days since I declared I wanted to be strong and then subsequently wrote the 45 day update.

CrossFit Capital Games of 2012

One of the many perks of running this blog is meeting lots of interesting people. Some of them are totally awesome, but normal people with interesting tales to tell (some of those people can be found telling their amazing stories here!).
