What It's All About.

This is why I CrossFit. This is why I'm proud to be a part of this great community. This past weekend I participated in the Battle Buddy 57 Reps for TCH WOD. It was a fundraiser WOD for Texas Children's Hospital in which each 2-person team completes 57 reps of 8 exercises. This WOD was in honor of Olivia Stevens whose dad, Chad, works out at Bayou City CrossFit. Little Olivia was born with a rare chromosomal deletion and spent the first 57 days of her life in the NICU at Texas Children's Hospital. She's been fighting ever since but is doing well. The "Perseverance through Hardship-57 Reps for TCH" WOD was our way, as a CrossFit community, of showing our support and I was amazed at how many people were there. It's like all you have to do in this community is share....share your stories, share your hardships, and peopl will be there to pick you up and help in whatever way they can. That is CrossFit. I wish I had more articulate things to say about the amazing people that make up our local CrossFit community, but I guess sometimes you just have to come and see for yourself. Here's a few pics from the weekend.
