It was an impressive and shining moment for all of our Elm City CrossFit community over the weekend when we had two teams competing in the 24 hour - Run Around the Lake in Wakefield MA. There were a few endurance veterans participating but for most of the group this was a first time. Many of our Elm City CrossFit team had never run a 5k nevermind 6,7 or even 8 of them. I know many of you have never stayed up for 24 hours straight unless there was alcohol involved- so to stay awake and run – this was impressive. Seriously though, everyone totally stepped outside your comfort zone, outside the "box" literally and totally stepped up to the plate. It is a tribute to your training, dedication, and heart. This was a small representation of our strong and vibrant community. It was a total team effort, from our training partners who train with us daily who did not make the trip – to our supportive community, who is always there to lend support. You should all be proud of yourselves!! It is such a pleasure to be surrounded by such strong athletes, coaches and friends.
