    Roosevelt sounds quite Platonic according to this statement. I like it.

    I’m a newby to Crossfit, started about a month ago. Had my annual physical this week with blood test and my doctor took me off blood pressure and cholesterol medicine. First time off in 15 years. Guess Crossfit and the Zone Diet really work!

      Congrats Mark! Great to hear of your success. I’ve been crossfitting about 6 months and had a similar visit with my MD a while back. I want to stand up and shout, “YESSSS!!!” everytime I hear of someone who has found the courage and will to do what many people say can’t be done. I don’t understand why folks aren’t flocking to Crossfit by the tens of millions. I really don’t.

      Awesome news! Keep at it. 🙂

      Mark! That’s awesome man. I’m really glad you’re staying consistent and getting something in return is the ultimate reward. Good job yesterday too!

      • Mark Peterson says:

        Josh, thanks, but you’re the man, when I grow up I want to be just like you!

    • Mark Peterson says:

      Thanks everyone for your encouragement, it means a lot to me. I don’t know what is better about Crossfit, the workout or the people you workout with.

    225 PR

    What they didn’t tell me about Crossfit is that it would ruin all my clothes. Nothing fits anymore except shoes and hats. Nothing. Ugh, I hate spending money on clothes. And my stupid waist is a whole entire inch bigger than it was a couple decades ago in high school. What’s up with that?!

    • Ben says:

      Hah, there are worse problems to have! As I started losing weight I had to buy new jeans/pants, and then I had to do so again. I don’t really mind, though.

    205 (PR)

    Coming soon, a new form of lean meat for all of you paleo people! Personally, I think I would rather eat Soylent Green than Soylent Brown.


    • Josh McGuire says:

      I need the Date bar recipe Ben….hook me up!

    • Patrick says:

      The good professor feels the main problem is the psychological barrier against eating a turd burger… Well, Yeah!

    175. I thought it was a PR but went back through my book and found it was not. It was a tie for PR. Still happy with it. Good to not lose ground! And I found out I LOVE weightlifting shoes!!

    Hmmmm….may have to try for a new Crossfit Total. 600 is in sight!
