Be a Hero

Aug 20

My friend and Barbell Shrugged teammate Chris Norman aka “CTP” has had this slogan for a while, “Reign Supreme.”  I have always thought that was super cool.

The Gap

Celebrating 1 Year

Sep 13

I may not make 500 words because I don’t have a lot of time.  We have been celebrating the gym being open for 1 year, and I have a 50K race to run tomorrow morning early.  I wanted to try to check in with as many words as possible.  Look at the awesome people in this picture.  I would say 95% of them are all Olive Branch CrossFit athletes if not all of them.
