20080719 Park WOD from Potomac Crossfit on Vimeo.
It killed me to miss the Park WOD, but I had to put the hours in at the hospital. From the video it looks like fun was had and really that's the point Right! Have fun Get Fit!
Just as an example of the "Crossfit bond" I'll use my friend Adrienne.
Adrienne and I first met at Crossfit DC. Tom spoke of her before I met her. What he told me was this "When you work out with Adrienne your going to push yourself harder than you do when she's not around" My thought was kinda like, Huh? Well for Christ sake he was right. As we took on whatever crazy ass workout that Tom made up we were right across from each other. Out of the gate she gave me a look that said, "come on bitch I dare you to keep up."
Who knows if I kept up, that remains a secret between Adrienne and I!
Now it's been a few years since we first met. We have on very rare occasions hung out outside of Crossfit. You know how it goes, life is busy. Does that make us not friends? Nope! Our friendship is built on Crossfit. We've had the girly chats over the years, the heart break and the injury and triumph of physical challenges.
I've seen Adrienne become a strong person. Physically yes, and emotionally. She walks into a room with an emotional strength that is empowering! I'm not saying she was a wuss before. Let's leave it at this, I've seen a change and it's good.
Also, although we don't get to chat so much these days I know she has my back. Whatever comes down the pike. I could call or email and support would be there. Not because I'm special but because we have worked hard together to get strong and break down walls of physical and emotional opposition. When you've done that with people a bond is created and that my friends is a Crossfit Friendship.
