    Very Legit Pic…..I am impressed

  2. Brady I stack things says:

    Awesome work Eric

  3. Casey says:

    Love the pic! You should have just had all three people stand on top of you then you wouldn’t have had to put away the weights.

    Awwww…. Dang! I thought we were 3 days behind mainsite. I saw Helen on mainsite Saturday, so I thought it would come up Tuesday! I’ve been so pumped–she’s one of my favs and I can’t come Wed. Crapity crap crap craaaapppppp!!!!! My lack of paying attention just ruined my night.

    • Tracey says:

      i need a rest day….Helen will be there for us, the next day. I love her too!!!

      • Tasha W says:

        I whined so much about it that my hubby switched his golf night for me! 🙂 YAY (and that’s LOVE)! I can be there now! Woot woot! Today’s WOD looks tough… good luck everyone!

  5. Tasha W says:

    Thank you SOO much to everyone who has signed up to take the Jarrett’s a meal so far! We have the next two weeks covered (3 meals per week) for them. That is SOOO awesome. I just want to make one last pitch (for now, anyway) to ask you all to please consider taking them a meal. We’re hoping to feed them for the entire month of August! OR, if you want to just pick up a giftcard to anywhere or donate cash, I’LL be happy to pick up a meal or giftcard for you and take it to them on your behalf – I have a flexible schedule so it’s not a prob!

    A couple of people asked me about it last night (THANK YOU BOTH) and the questions were 1)Do they only eat Paleo? The answer is: While they do mostly eat paleo, yes, Amanda told me that they will enjoy anything that we bring to them and they are so appreciative of not having to shop/prepare/cook right now. She has zero energy and needs as much rest as possible. The second question I had was 2) How do I get it to them? Amanda is reachable via text message, and her phone number is on the website next to their address info (link below). Just text her the day before (or morning of) and work out the drop-off time with her. Phil met me in the little cul de sac in front of their gate when I dropped their meal off yesterday and it worked perfectly.

    Again, thank you all! I’m like everyone else – I’m so busy and I don’t know what I’m doing half the time…. 🙂 When I see a friend in need and going through a hard time, I always think, “I want to do something, but what?” This doesn’t seem like much, but it takes an incredible burden off of them while they cope with what’s going on right now. They truly appreciate it!

    17:44 RX’d, previous time was 2rnds+4 wallballs at 20 min cutoff back in August, so this was a considerable PR.

  7. Carson says:


    Great work Eric!

  8. I never half step cuz I'm not a half stepper - Drink a lot of soda so they call me Dr. Pepper says:

    2rds + 4 @ 20 min

    Brain wasn’t quite firing afterward, think I posted on the board 1 + 4 at 15 min…
    Training for Rocket City Marathon starts this week, 20 weeks to go. Limiting all couplet, triplet and other metcons to 15 mins, except for prescribed 20 min AMRAPS (and except for today :P) Form on squat snatches felt great today. DB’s snatch clinic a month ago helped a ton with mental cues today.

  9. Larry says:

    Eric, that picture is ridiculous! Nice work…

  10. kristi simmons says:

    I’m officially BACK in the Cross Fit saddle again…and what better way to come back than with my top 2 goats…this should be fun!

    • Kerri says:

      1630 has missed you!!!
      Gonna have to push through this one today!!!

    • Tasha W says:

      Kristi, I will never forget you and I during that snatch workout we did together… Every time we’d do one we’d drop the bar, look at each other and go, “I don’t know what the %^*$# I’m doing! I HAAAATTTEEE the snatch!” LOL! Hate to miss the memories tonight!

  11. Thanks Jake, Tracey and everyone that keep things rolling at CFHSV. I believe we have one of the best affiliates in CrossFit and it has to do with the great people and incredible facility. We appreciate all that you do!

  12. Michael K says:

    I guess im pimping my own going away party. 7pm @ the nook on Tuesday the 2nd of August. I have really enjoyed my time at CFHSV and will miss you all very much. Duty Calls!

  13. DaveC says:

    Regarding tonight’s WOD, if it’s as hot as it was yesterday, my lifespan will be highly dependent on the cutoff time!

  14. Josh Kennedy says:

    Scaled to 45# bar this morning, completed in 17:58. Reserves are coming back, but still can’t dig very deep.

    That photo of Eric was legit! Brady and I were getting a workout just stacking the darn plates on him!

    • Hey Josh if had known what Monday’s workout was going to be I think I would have held off on the extra deadlifts we did Sunday… My back is still killing me! Thanks again for the great spot you guys got it on me quick and off that is the key.

  15. Rich H says:

    Thanks Crossfit team and 0700 class for the easy transition back after umbilical hernia surgery. Appreciate your care and consideration with easing me back in!

    • Ron Wood says:

      We’re glad you’re back! Hopefully the pressure of our intensity won’t cause future surgeries.

  16. Robert S. says:


    151 rx’d (12/25,11/25,8/20,6/21,7/16)

    Bench press was 160#. PR by 8 reps and 5 # heavier this time.

  17. Scott Rauer says:

    Coach Robert: Wanted to thank you publicly for the parking sign and overall rock star treatment. Last 2 weeks have been bitter-sweet: my last promotion, relinquishing a job that I have held for 3 years, and retiring from the Army….something I have invested 26 years of my life in. Thankfully, you get it and your support of Soldiers and their families is awesome!

    Folks like you truly make CFHSV a COMMUNITY and not just another box. Thank you my brother!

  18. Kerri says:

    23:36 rx’ed… NOT PRETTY!! Wasn’t until my 3rd round that I actually got into a rep rhythm with the squat snatches.

    • JM says:

      Nice job ^^^

      2 + 40
      I welcomed the wall balls, this was very difficult for me….squat snatch. Scott was motivating.
