    Beat Barrow in the Science Throwdown to end “The Streak”

    More importantly, Kim’s last class 🙁 What a great person and joy to have in the 7PM crew. We’re all going to miss her.

    Barrow nailed it. 7pm is losing a part of its family after tonight. Miss you Kim!

    Smashed my old time. But Ryan beat me, and I can’t stand him.

    Tonight was Kim’s last class as she’s moving to SF. Her very first WOD with the main classes was Wood and she went out with it. Haley assures me that it wasn’t planned but I don’t buy it, that’s way too eerie a coincidence. This marks an end to what’s been my fave era of the 7PM Crew, and that’s saying a lot considering the different groups we’ve had. Kim had this personality that I think we all fed off of in class, I know I did personally. I think a lot of times telling someone they’ll be missed is as hollow as a happy birthday on Facebook, but Kim really will be missed, 7PM won’t be as fun without her.

      Solid words Barrow. 7pm is legit and always fun to be in that class.

      Wood: 29:13 (first time running in who knows when and it wasn’t easy)
