    Mac! Living proof that nice guys always finish first. Thanks for being a mentor, motivator, and all around great dude.

  2. Dani says:

    THE Mac. There is only one and there he is looking strong and patriotic! Mac, you show humility and grace in the gym and always have a compliment, a high five, or a kind word for all around you. You exemplify what it means to be a devoted husband, father and genuine human. And to think, you got all of those qualities and SUCH GREAT LOOKS. Seems unfair :p

    That’s my 101 partner! There is a certain bond you make during CF101 that you just can’t explain. The McCraws epitomize CFHSV family and I’m proud to know them.

  13. steve price says:

    Mac, always leading by example! No ego, just hard work ethic and pulling those around him up this crossfit ladder “AKA rope” by his encouraging words. Glad to know you “Mac Daddy”!

    Wow! Not sure what to say other than thank you all for the kind words. It is always an uplifting and humbling experience working out with each of you. There is just something about giving everything you have and seeing others do the same day in and day out that lets you know that you are a part of something truly special.
