THE PAST WEEK
Baby Grace is Born
The past week saw a lot of faces coaching around the gym. None of which were mine. Why? I was busy supporting my wife giving birth to our first child. Grace was born on Monday August 22nd at 7:44pm and has forever changed our lives. I would like to thank all of you, my clients, for understanding my absence and most of all my team of coaches who dropped everything in their lives so that I may enjoy the greatest moments of my life. You guys are the best team I could ever imagine. THANK YOU JP, GERRY, ALEX, TERRY, ROB, ROE, CHRISTINE, COREY, and ADAM. I can’t thank you enough and I will never forget what you have done.
The Nutts Cup
On Saturday August 27th CrossFit Vancouver honoured fallen soldier Andrew Nuttall by hosting the “Nutts Cup”. The event saw teams of three (2 men, 1 gal) take on 3 WODs in the day for prizes. We had two teams take on the day and they each place well. Beast, Flip, and KStar formed the Multiple Scorgasms while Big Deal, Zamboni, and Hatty made up the Blood, Sweat, and Beers team. The event was a huge success and you can see some coverage on Global News by following this link. (check out the 24 minute mark)
Deep Cove Daze
Deep Cove Daze came on Sunday the 28th and our community was out in full force as usual. We had many people stop by our booth both new and old. The guys from Q Energy Drink poured non-stop all day at the booth to attract people to CrossFit North Van and Q. Thanks for the support Jason, Al, and Lorna. (Dutch, Stud Muffin, and Spunky) Thanks to everyone else who came out to be a part of the day.
Doug aka Liquid has been training all year for the Penticton IronMan. His dedication and work ethic are matched by very few and he raced on Sunday August 28th while all of us relaxed at Deep Cove Daze. I am proud to announce all of Doug’s training paid off. He hit is goal, sub 10 hours. Congrats Doug on your 9:57! We are amazed by you and wish you the best as you recover over the next few weeks.
