Article from Jon Gilson at Again Faster:

. . .Score-motivated performance is not an unspeakable evil, but awareness of its potential to hurt long term development is a must. Unless there are medals, money, or everlasting glory at stake, it is wise to conduct every exercise with the ferocity of a midsummer hurricane. You might burn out today, but you won’t for long. . .

Don’t forget that the Fight Gone Bad III Fundraiser is in less than 2 weeks!

I think some people are worried about competing (that they need to be “CrossFit Studs” to compete). There is no reason to be worried. The goal is to raise as much money as possible for Prostate cancer research and the Wounded Warrior Project. . . your FGB performance related to everyone one else has very little to do with that. Please sign up, recruit your friends and family to sponsor you, and get a great workout in for a great cause.

Remember, space is limited for competitors (not necessarily for spectators), so sign up right away.

Everyone else should donate to the gym or to your favorite athlete (or you can donate to the one who has the least amount of donations. . . I am sure they won’t mind).

    Stav- Bryan and I are definitely in for the Big Girls Don’t Cry. I wear a small or med shirt and he wears a large. Can’t wait!

  • Craig

    Beautiful scenery!

    Stav, your wardrobe costs must be 50% lower since you never wear shirts anymore.

    D, a CF logo shirt would have put you on the main page!

    Looking forward to your crew coming down for the Unlimited challenge October 19th. I’m hoping to get a workout or 2 at your gym before then. Who knows? I may have to switch schools and rep the horns by then.
    What do you think Stav?

  • Stavros @ DiabloCrossfit.com

    Whether or not you admit it, you’re already one of us. I can tell, it’s gonna happen. So far, we have a big crew coming from DCF to the challenge, Austin would like me to email him the names and shirt sizes by the middle of the week. Just plan on bringing cash and pay the day of.

  • Carry

    Stav, do we pay to enter the challenge? I already have a DCF shirt. Just to confirm…is it on Sunday, Oct 5th?

  • Carry

    OR are we buying their shirt? In that case I suppose I am a Med?

  • Craig
