CrossFit Marathon Report

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!

Stellar performance! I can't imagine running sub-8's for 5 miles let alone the last 5 of 26.2!!! Incredible.
