I kind of understand not looking at the site the night before. Keeping the element of surprise and all. I know there are 101 reasons to not look. Looking at sites used to be the only way I would get workouts, but coming to a box you can get the workout when you get there. But then let’s look at the other side of it. I post the most awesome post in the history of CrossFit and it’s all that anybody can talk about the whole next day. Anybody but the ones that didn’t look at the site that is. What are they really missing? If nothing else, general information. I can’t count how many times we’ve had something in the works like the Warrior Dash, even for an extended length of time, and then somebody says “oh, I didn’t even know we were doing that”. I’ve been putting videos on the site lately, sometimes a demonstration of an exercise in the WOD. I love it when I say “did you watch the video?” and I get the deer in the headlight look. I post that we want everybody to bring their favorite recipe to put in a cookbook to give out to our athletes and then (no lie) two days later somebody says “we ought to do something like a cookbook up here”. Looking at the site the night before, or at all, is not mandatory but there is so much more than just general information on here. The site is a huge part of CrossFit. It is a big part of what unites the community and gets everyone involved. I want this site to be a two lane highway, I post and you reply. This is how we (Joey and I) can accommodate your needs. We do think of this as your box. Frequent the site and encourage others to as well, as many of you are.

    all signed up for crossfit for Hope, it’s off the main site. Really easy, whoever signed up for the open will use the same email and password. Only question do we give money (donation) to you and send it all together?

    Warrior Dash was a blast! I took a couple days off and rested my numb bum, which is STILL numb – but a little better. I’d like to see a Crossfit Texarkana group at Tough Mudder next year! I’m game for canoeing & I know some folks are ready to zip line at Rowdy Adventures. See ya mañana! Get the rolling pin ready.

    Regarding the website, I too like the element of surprise but there is always so much more information other than the WOD. 
    I’m looking forward to canoeing/kayaking, we do that every mother’s day in Broken Bow. I wasn’t even sore Monday, gotta be the crossfit!

    17.44 for me! Rings and then I rowed the last 800 because my knee hurt.  We canoed from Caddo Gap to Glenwood this past weekend and it was great!  There are numerous rock bars to stop and swim, the water was really clear and it is the perfect trip even for a first-timer!   It was a 3 hour float with no stops!   I would consider going depending on the date!  We are going to take the kids in the next couple of weeks.
