Chip and Leslie ran the National Marathon this past weekend; I've yet to get the post game report from Chip but did hear from Leslie;
"3:44:11! Faster than my training pace and only running once a week!
Now THAT is a testament to CrossFit!
My last 5 miles were less than 8:00 minute/mile and my last mile was around 7:20 pace!
Jon kept saying, “This is where crossfit is paying off for you, your body is able to get rid of the lactic acid before it builds up.”
I only had sore knees from the pounding, no significant muscle soreness to speak of…..I did a recovery ride yesterday that probably really helped….but I’ll be in tomorrow!
I have a half ironman in 16 days…….YIKES!"
Leslie is a Testament to what having the drive, determination, and commitment to take your fitness to a whole new level will get you!
We can provide the environment but it's you who takes the action!
From all of us at CrossFit Old Town; Congrat's Leslie!

"...Even if handstand pushups have no place in your life, there’s something eye-opening and even inspiring about the site’s aggressive ambitions for the human body. Like urban-gymnast traceurs and other daredevils who have come into their own on digital video, CrossFitters offer themselves as evidence that people are capable of more than merely giving up sugar for Splenda and taking the stairs occasionally; according to the CrossFit creed, they can and should also be prepared to fell trees, tame bulls and carry families of four on their backs. Olympians, soldiers, police officers, firefighters and devoted fitness amateurs convene on the site, reveling in max squats and circus-strongman stunts, which they repeat as many as 100 times per workout...."
What did you think of the article?
