Mark your calendars for this Saturday, July 3rd at 10am. In observance of the 4th we will be doing a Hero WOD called “The Seven.” For those of you who’ve done this WOD before you know three things. It’s long, it’s heavy, & it’s nasty! And what better way to do that by honoring our military & first responders & celebrating America! If you’re in town next weekend then c’mon out and let’s have some fun!
We will not have Border City Barbell class this Saturday in light of all of us doing “The Seven.” We will just have one class time at 10am.
In observance of the 4th the Weekend Warriors will not meet next Sunday afternoon. Have a safe and happy holiday!

Background: “The Seven” is in memory of seven US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officers and one Jordanian officer who were killed by a suicide bomber at a remote base in southeastern Afghanistan on December 30, 2009. The bomber was posing as a potential informant reporting on Al Qaeda. Seven new stars were etched onto the memorial wall at the CIA.
Killed in the attack were CIA officers Jennifer Lynne Matthews, 45; Scott Michael Roberson, 39; Harold E. Brown Jr., 37; Darren LaBonte, 35; Elizabeth Hanson, 30; and security contractors Jeremy Jason Wise, 35, and Dane Clark Paresi, 46.
This workout was first posted on the CrossFit main site as the workout of the day for Sunday, May 30, 2010 (100530). It has since become one of CrossFit’s most recognizable Hero WODs.
