ARE YOU READY FOR THE BEACH?!

Ok gang, just a coupe of more days until the beach WOD on 13 mile! Looks like we're going to have a pretty good turnout, so be ready for some team stuff smile emoticon
Also, please be sure to bring something to snack on! I'll bring cups, plates, and hot dogs and burgers, but we could use drinks, chips, buns, snack mixes, etc. So feel free to post to this thread on what you're going to bring so we can have an idea.
Let me know if you have any questions!

BEACH WOD UPDATE #2

Well the city of Pasadena has done a REAL SOLID, and NOT in a good way.
THE BEACH WOD WILL NOT BE AT EL JARDIN THIS YEAR.
So here's PLAN B for WODing on Galveston:
1. We'll WOD on the beach area at 13 mile, just where we were last year.
2. Times are exactly the same!!
3. Instead of hitting up a local watering hole, we'll stay on the beach and cook out and hang out, so please plan on bringing something like you all did last year.
4. Kiddos are more than welcome!
We will still be done in time for anyone who wants to hang out for a bit to do so and not get home too late. We can stay at the beach for as long as we want, too, so that isn't an issue.
Sorry for the major change up, but I know it'll still be a great time!

NOTES FROM THE COACH

Ok athletes, it was an awesome weekend, and it's going to be an awesome week. We've got a lot of new athletes and all of you are kicking butt and doing awesome on the blacktop!

Two awesome events will happen this week:
1) Starting as early as tomorrow, the teenage division will begin. The events can be watched on the youtube channel, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3 (all at different times). Be sure to get all of the info at games.crossfit.com 

2) The Partners in Paleo clean eating and meal prep class will happen this Saturday! The class will begin at 10am, but there will be a WOD at 8am. From 9am to 10am I will be cleaning/preparing the gym for the class so there's no open gym. If you are interested in coming to the class just let me know and I'll make sure to pencile you in (I will need a firm answer as the cost is $25 per person).

Again, awesome job to everyone for all of the hard work! And see you on the blacktop!

PARTNERS IN PALEO CLEAN EATING AND MEAL PREPPING CLASS

Ok Athletes, the official FB e-vite has gone out for the Partners in Paleo's (PIP) clean eating and meal prepping class that will be held at Third Coast! The class is from 10am - 12pm on July 25th. Come ready to learn about clean eating and how it effects us all and how to meal prep, and also to taste some great samples that PIP has to offer!

The cost is $25 per person, and I think it will be well worth it. If you are interested in going, please sign up via the e-vite at your earliest convenience.

Finally, for those who wish to WOD, the WOD will be earlier that morning at 8am. This will allow for a full hour, and then a prep hour prior to the PIP class.
