Thank you so much to everyone who came yesterday and participated in our Fort Hood Memorial Fundraising Workout. The “Lumberjack 20″ was not easy. We had 16 people complete the workout as individuals. Only 6 of them completed the workout as prescribed:
Jenny LaCoss 25:10
Mike Heinz 30:16
Chris Hardy 32:43
Tony Brown 39:03
Leonard Jefferson 49:43
As is often the case it was a Tucson Fire Fighter sweep for the top men’s and women’s spot.
But, all six of you are magnificent. We had three of Tucson’s best garage CrossFitters join us-the entire Lisaanne family (some taking up supporting roles and two doing the workout) and Macenzy who was incredibly close to completing the workout as Rx’d, only dropping the Overhead Squat weight from 115 to 95. He finished in just over 28 minutes. Plus he is sweetly tolerant of me misspelling his name each time he comes in.
At 2:00 for our Free Saturday workout we had 22 pairs of folks complete the workout. A huge shout out to them because several of them were new and this was their first ever kettlebell swing, deadlift and overhead squat! They did a fantastic job. No one broke down in tears at the chaos and million new skills and stack of 400m runs. I think all of you have the makings of a solid CrossFitter!
We’ll have lots more photos soon. Keep an eye on the gallery. I am still knee deep in accounting, but I think we raised a little over $400.00 so far and that is without including the t-shirt sales etc… Give us a few business days and you will be able to look at our donation page at cflumberjack.org and see our final amount from yesterday. We will post another donation later in the month with the rest of the t-shirt sales.
Thankyou to Summer, Elijah and Daniel for helping with the backstage work of photography, equipment and stop watches and thanks again, everyone.
