Important stuff…

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

Well, kind of important stuff. 

First, no Suffer on Saturday.  Dawn, Jon McD, Drew, Kim and myself will be participating in the Indiana Highland Games in Ft Wayne.  However, we will work out on Sunday morning at 8 am. 

Second, we will have an all gym competition starting on Monday the 23.  We will do a hopper WOD on Monday.  Wednesday we will run a 5K, and Friday we will finish with a CFT.  Vince and I would like for everyone to participate in all 3 events.  We will score all 3 events and find the best CrossFitter at Indy CrossFit. 

Lastly, we were nominated for the best gym in Indy by WRTV.  The voting will start on June 23 and go through August 25.  Please go and vote for us at  It would be really cool to see a small gym such as ours do well. 

Thanks for all of your support, Indy CrossFit is what it is because of all of our members.

May that man, that coward never get home from Troy – let him linger here, ripping sport for the dogs, whoever shirks the fight while this day lasts.

Even if one’s head were to be suddenly cut off,
he should be able to do one more action with certainty.
With martial valor, if one becomes like a revengeful ghost
and shows great determination, though his head is cut off,
he should not die.
~ Hagakure The Way of the Samurai

Yesterday, The Forge had a 3-round Fight Gone Bad……Check it out below. Way to gut it out guys!
