Fitness Life? Worth it

Hey guys!  Here’s the Dirty Dozen email you’ve been waiting for!!


Row 10k: in the gym Friday November 1st, come, setup, and get to it!

Row for Revielle: 24 Rounds: 10-min On, 50-min rest for Max Distance.  This will be in January at CrossFit Kitsap and is the de facto finale for this years’ big challenge.  Plan on it, check their website, bug Dan, and come raise money for this great cause and have a blast getting way way tired!

Run 5k: The Ultimate Hawaiian Trail run, or Wizards 5k on December 1st, google it, sign up and do it!

Run 10k: From the gym to Pam and Dan’s house in Edmonds!  Breakfast, coffee and good times to follow.  +1’s welcome (we’ll need drivers to get us all back to the gym to go home), September 29th, 10am, rain or shine 🙂  I’ll publish the route ahead of time and will dispense maps and whatnot.  Registration is required (want to have a full list so we don’t lose anyone!!) and it costs $20.

Chad : 1,000 Step-ups for Time, wear 40lbs backpack 24/20” box.  Complete this anytime in October.  Must be at the gym, must weigh the backpack 🙂

Clovis: 10-mile Run, 150 Burpee Pull-ups, partition reps/running as needed, for time.  Friday October 18th.  I’ll be doing this workout over several hours all afternoon at the gym.  We will all be done (done done) at 7:30pm SHARP.  Plan accordingly.  I plan on making several different run courses for 1 mile and 2 mile options.

Gilligan:    3 Rounds for Max Distance: 30 Minutes Biking, 20 Minutes Running, 10 minutes Rowing.  B.Y.O.Bike, no stationary biking.  After we finish we’ll head over to Goffe and Nancy’s house for tasty BBQ and good times.  Must register early, $50.  Please understand that this event takes oodles of logistics.  Getting the rowers to the park, getting them back to the gym, keeping track of everything, having cramping helps, water, and the BBQ itself.  Saturday September 7th, 2:15pm start (SHARP AS A TACK), be there by 1:45/2:00 to get yourself put together and warmed up.  ***NOTICE*** 19 Athlete Maximum, please register ASAP.   Email Jesse@localsgym.com

So far the only people who’ve completed everything are:

Denise Schroeder, Maher Joudi, Rachel Egner, Emily Young, Marina Berti, Jesse Ward and Jesse Ward.

If you think this is in error, please let me know (we’re not perfect), plead your case over email to Jesse@localsgym.com.  If you want to do some make ups, we can talk about that and schedule them when it fits best.  THERE WILL BE NO MAKE UPS AVAILABLE IN DECEMBER.  You gotta want it Lynnwood!

OMG! The Dirty Dozen

Guys!  I’m super stoked that you’re all so into getting these challenges done!  Please remember that we’ll make sure you have ample opportunities to get the “simple” ones done (e.g. Run 5k) and that you’ll have ample notice to get the ones that really can’t be done without everyone (e.g. Gilligan and Clovis). So don’t freak out!

Remember that the phase we’re in right now is the “C2 Bike Marathon” Phase.  Let Lana or Jesse know if you want to ride it on a Saturday instead of taking class, we have space for 3 each weekend.  With a little planning we might fit a few more but it does take 90 minutes to nearly 2 hours and we’re open from about 6:45 to about 10:15.  We’re gonna have this out there on these weekends and then it’ll be a goner: July 27th, Aug 3rd, Aug 10th, and Aug 17th.  Be early or be unable!!
