Today is Kelley D's birthday! Kelley was one of our first athletes as we opened the doors at Evolve. Kelley is a walking example of what Evolve stands for. For Kelley, nothing is an obstacle, only an opportunity for improvement. She fights hard for the things that she wants out of her personal health and wellness, she is always supportive in helping other athletes get what they desire, is very welcoming to new or visiting athletes to the gym, always has a positive "can do" attitude, and she just flat out ROCKS!
Kelley has a saying that that always rings loud in my mind. I always think about it when we are at a crossroads with the next step for Evolve and it helps Jon and I stay ground with our direction. The saying is, "it's not about being big, it's about being awesome!" Well, you ARE awesome Kelley and we thank you for all you have done for us. This Sat WOD is for you! Have a great birthday!
Buddy "Kelley" WOD, not "Kelly"
5 Rounds of:
Run 400 meters
30 Box jump, 24 inch box
30 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
Since Kelley is such a good BUDDY you will do this with a partner. You will run together, do alternating buddy box jumps together, and do the buddy wall balls that we did last saturday together. In the spirit of Kelley, as partners, push each other to do something great!
All right everybody, Jenn and Cindy have called you out. The Tough Mudder is in Beaver Creek on July 25th and 26th.
Here's a little taste from the website:
The Tough Mudder series was created because there is not an event in America that tests toughness, fitness, strength, stamina and mental grit all in one place and all in one day. Sure, there are a few that will test these things – for thousands of dollars and a week of your life. But in one day in one location? We don’t think so. Other mud runs like the Muddy Buddy series? Forget it – unless you want to run alongside your 60-year-old grandmother. Tough Mudder is a truly exceptional event for truly exceptional people. Fair weather runners should stay at home.
Tough Mudder is also about experiencing a true sense of camaraderie that, sadly, is rarely seen outside of the military these days. To get over some of our obstacles you will need the help of others – they are simply too much for one man to tackle alone. Tough Mudders, unlike some other types of endurance runners, are team players; they help out other Tough Mudders. We want everyone to compete, but being a Tough Mudder is also about making sure no man is left behind, not worrying about your finish time.
Allright Evovle, who's in? Let Jenn and Cindy know!
