CFF Hits the Slopes

A big group from Fenway went up to Sunday River this past weekend to bring a little function to our fitness. There was a big mix of snowboarders, skiers, and even snowshoers but I think it’s pretty safe to say that we all had a blast.1800344_10100901517668304_647786339_n

Brennan and I held our own despite not having been on skis in about ten years. Must be all the CrossFit. Tyler Cone took a ski lesson and was the self-reported “top of his class.” There were also a lot of veteran skiers and snowboarders in the group that pretty much dominated the entire mountain. Rachel Chernick, Sean O’Connell, and Amy West were among the brave snowboarders in group while Tyler, Brennan, Kyle B., Katie Crowley, Tim, Marina, Elyse, Joe Bracken, and myself were the skiers. Heather went snowshoeing all over and she and I proved that Australians/Californians know nothing about making a snowman.

A huge thank you to Sean O’Connell for planning and organizing the whole trip.IMG_3720

    Felt OK coming back after a few days of not feeling well. Pistols were pretty ugly but fought through it. Great work 5:30am!
