Mar 21 WOD: Open 13.3 by Almost Fit on Mar 21, 2013I watched the live announcement on the CF Games website again this morning.

Feb 15 WOD: Double metcon + Wendler by Almost Fit on Feb 15, 2013I like going to the 10 am class because the box is usually empty when I arrive and there's a bigger chance that I'll be able to do the Wendler.

Then I remembered what my friend told me about the cute and not-so-expensive gy...
