15 Oct

Here I am sitting in the cafeteria at Troy University, Montgomery.  I am waiting around until my 8:05 p.m. class begins…Managerial Finance, I…ugh.  Needless to say, I am not excited about the class.  On a typical day, I (Fletch) am getting warmed up for the WOD.  I have to admit missing a WOD makes Finance even worse.


I have always wanted to be addicted to some sort of fitness regimen and I never thought it would happen…ever.  Days like today make me realize that yup, it happened.  I am addicted to CrossFit.


OK, on with the blog.  There is a point to this, I promise.  From my previous posts, you have read that I participated in my first 5k in October 2011 and this October (one year later), I was able to run the entire 3.1 miles without stopping.  Huge milestone, people – huge!  The photographer for the run posted pictures of the runners today.  You should know me a little by now, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I put together a before and after photo.  The photo is below.  I posted it to Facebook today and received a lot of awesome comments.  And of course I sent the picture to my coaches, Josh and Wes.  Now, I’m sharing the picture on my blog with all of you.  I hope you enjoy it.  Keep going and fight that fight.

      I do have a Facebook page, but it’s private – I don’t have a ‘like’ page.
