Ab Pectore!

Hey Goose,

I’m just a few months away from my 1 year anniversary at Crossfit Southie and I’ll be the first to attest that I may not attend as often as most. Twice per week is about as much as my schedule allows. Trust me, I would go daily if I could and when I do go, I try my best to give it my ‘all’.

In my own effort to compensate (in part) for my absence, I wear my Crossfit Southie wrist band on my stethoscope. Every time I exam a patient I think of where I’d like to be. It motivates me to practice in my profession like I’m doing a WOD (thankfully WODs are not 12 hour days!). Reading posts over the last year I realize that Crossfit infiltrating into other aspect of my life isn’t unique. It seems more like a common link that most, if not all, relate to.

It’s a great thing. My family (except for my oldest son) is sick and tired of my yammering about Crossfit. I’d say, a small price to pay for my health and happiness. I owe it all to you, the coaches and the amazing crossfit southie community. Ab Pectore!

    Press: 130 x 3
    WOD: 13:10 Rx (Shout outs to Arik for giving me tips and keeping me moving throughout the whole WOD. That was a big help man, just realized that you pushed me to beat your own time!)

    Great vibe in the gym tonight. 7PM CLASS KEEPIN’ IT WEIRD.

    Psyched that we finally had a Press night, I’ve been waiting for that, but The Programmers got a BENCH NIGHT, real jealous. My tri’s could use some accessory work too, how about it?

    Thanks Berretta for coaching me on the kettlebell weight before today’s WOD. I tend to second guess myself (or my ability) with the weights and you helped convince me to at least try Level 2. I thought that if I could get through one round that it would be a success. Imagine my surprise when I was counting down the swings on the 5th round. Thanks for the encouragement — yet again, another reason to love CF Southie!
