The 2013 CrossFit Games season begins Wednesday evening at 8 PM EST with the announcement of Open workout 13.1. Discussing/guessing what might come out of the hopper may just be my favorite part of The Open. Questions like: Which movements can and can’t be programmed? How difficult is it to judge? And, what standards will be used? All make for interesting conversation, you know, if you’re into competitive exercise. Honestly, I think I prefer talking about and thinking about the programming to actually doing the workouts. With the announcement imminent, what do you think it’s going to be? What do you, or don’t you want to see? Post to comments.
March 6, 2013

Scotty Rum’s Karaoke Night Fundraiser… With a Twist! On March 9th Scott Rumrill is hosting a HUGE karaoke night at Copperfield’s, next to CrossFit Fenway. Admission is $20, and all proceeds go to Scott’s fundraising effort for the American Liver Foundation. The twist? Sure, you can just do some good ol’ fashioned karaoke, or for a $5 donation you can pick a song and the person who sings it! Immunity from being chosen to sing is available for an additional $10 donation at the door. There will also be delicious barbecue courtesy of SoulFire. If you can’t make it, but would still like to donate, Scott’s fundraising page is here.
CFF Spartan Race Team – Cynthia and Caitlin are forming a team for the Spartan Race in Amesbury on August 10th! This will be their first obstacle race, and they welcome the company of other first-timers and obstacle race veterans alike. Register here as part of team “Total Eclipse Of Your Mom” (they’re open to alternative team name suggestions if you don’t love “your mom” jokes and 80′s ballads as much as they do.) To get the cheapest registration rate, be sure to sign up before March 10th! Please e-mail Cynthia with questions, or come talk to us at the gym. LET’S WEAR SOME MUD, PEOPLE!
