Here is also a video of the competition with some DCFers in the background:

‘Light Drinking’ no risk to baby

The University College London team classed “light” drinking as up to two drinks a week throughout pregnancy.

The study of 12,500 three-year-olds even found a lower risk of some problems in children of such drinkers. . .

    I’d recognize Jorgie’s thrusters anywhere (and his half butterfly and half old skool kip pullup runs).
    Watching that made me wish I had been able to make it!

    Happy Birthday, Mark!

    How was the party last night? We took Monkey Kaela trick-or-treating with some friends. =]

    Anywho, so perhaps there has been some mention of a new CF. “Solano” is currently in the affiliation process right now but we hope to open our doors some time soon. I’m super proud to have started at Diablo and hope that the knowledge I’ve gained here will shine there. Along with a few others, I will be attending this month’s cert at CFOW. Maybe I’ll see Diablo there?

    Once we open our doors to the public, Solano would really like to have ya’ll over for a WOD. I know we can learn a lot from Diablo. =]

    p.s. Luca–thanks for having Kaela and I at your class on Thursday! I learned a lot and yes, I’ll remember to keep my chin down.

    With two months left in the year, I thought I’d revisit my goals for the year:

    Gymnastics: 30 pullups in a row. I did 37 today after a great class by Craig. I should hit 40 before the end of the year, and I’d like to get 50. Today is Day 26 of the 100 Day Pullup Challenge. Is anyone else still in?

    Weightlifting: 1.5x bodyweight deadlift. I got this a while ago (255#), but haven’t done heavy deadlifts since. I think I can hit 300#, maybe 2xBW before the end of the year.

    MetCon: sub-4 Newbie. Got this one Wednesday (3:46) before getting crushed by “JT.”

    I’d like to hear updates on everyone’s goals. Sorry I missed the party last night– I heard it was fun.

    Party stories – it was a good one:

    Best costume goes to JJ for his Thor outfit. We suspect he didn’t want to take it off. Yes, he made the chain maille.

    The DCF crew hung together most of the night, trading wod and “I remember when” stories. Anne, Holly, Vicky, Nick, JJ, Jamie, Rob, Nate, Craig, Yvonne, Josh, Tony! and Luca .

    Lots of cocktails…for me anyway. I likely embarassed my wife. Can’t believe that Yvonne and I were the only Diablos.

    Saw 2 Sarah Paulins. One was a girl – a spittin’ image and had the accent. The other was a guy, a big guy – very funny – would have won best costume.

    Did whiskey shots for Nate: he’s leaving us. I shouldn’t have done that. Then Tony showed up and we did shots of Jagermeister… do people still drink that? I actually cheered when he suggested it. Brutal.

    My favorite costume: Dep. Trudy Weigel from Reno 911 in a bathing suit with a bra and underwear.

    Josh came as Kevin Federline, but I think he always does.

    Finally, the funniest story of all: Rob made out with an Oompa Loompa.

    (I’ll never be able to watch Charley and the Chocolate Factory again without laughing my ass off).

    Birthday was great! I am really sorry I couldn’t make it to the party to hang out with y’all outside the Shed. It wasn’t in the cards; no sitter available (after 6 tries). Glad the party was a success.
    I did meet Tony, and we did JT before class, Tuesday night. He promised to be back in December, again (this is the Army guy, right?) He was impressed by our growth.
    Revisting goals:
    Progressing towards 40 pullups, and I imagine I’ll hit my sub 6 Fran goal next time I do it, now that my pullups are in order.
    Still got to work on my double unders to hit my Annie goal of sub 8. I should be doing that practice, daily, since it doesn’t really require substantial recovery demands.

    Happy Birthday Mark!! So sorry we missed telling you in person. Chanda has been sick and Carry spent the day with her kids. Chanda is doing better tonight.
    We’re going to a post Halloween (costume) party tonight. Wish we could have made it last night.
    Hopefully we can make it in tomorrow 🙂

    The party was fun, it’s nice to see the people you know from the gym in a different setting. Vickie and I had a blast, she was “having a good time”,when I got there, Yvonne and Holly did a number on her with shots of tequila ;-). I was sad to hear of Nate leaving, he will be missed, I love his very laid back style.

    Great to see you and Kaela too Sakura, she’s getting so big and she’s so sweet, congrats again to you and all of the Solano crew, welcome into the family. From what I saw on Thursday you’ll be a great trainer, they are lucky to have you.
