We, the coaching staff will start putting out a monthly challenge for all you awesome athletes to perform some time during this month! We will have the challenge listed up on the back of the WOD white board. When you complete the challenge, write your name and time/score/weight, etc.. (will vary per challenge), and if you did it RX’d or scaled on the board. The monthly winner will be recognized right here on our website!
Our first challenge, presented by Coach Sherri will be….

Dedicated to Chad Michael Wilkinson of the US Navy who died on October 29, 2018, in Virginia Beach on active duty after 22 years of service.
CrossFit Games Director, Dave Castro posted this workout in memory of Chad, who was a friend. Castro said: “A few weeks ago we lost an American hero. A friend of mine and someone I worked with when I was in the Navy. At his funeral his wife mentioned that he did 1000 step ups for time with a 45 pound pack on a 20” box to train for climbing Mt Aconcagua. Tonight I did this workout with @jameshobart @apbozman and @jimi.letchford. We did it as a celebration of his life and to honor his memory. If you are looking for something to do this weekend give this one a go and keep Chad in mind.”
From the Navy SEAL Foundation website: “SOCS Chad Michael Wilkinson died by suicide. The Foundation provided immediate tragedy assistance funding, travel and lodging for his family members, flowers and memorial legacy items for the command memorial and reception, as well as a family dinner the evening before the command memorial.”
REMEMBER: The challenges will be separate from our daily WODs, so they are done on your own time, any time during the month. So, deadline for this challenge will be 2000 local on 31 Jan.
Let’s have some fun!!!!
