Saturday Run to Northeast Ohio

(3/31)  I decided it would be a good idea to head west and visit some more Ohio boxes.  This time I took back up in the form of Liz, Mari, and Sandi.  After a 2 hour drive we landed at CF Distinction (225) in Beechwood, OH.  We met Travis and Regina and the CFD Crew and then got a warm up in on our own.  After that we took a look at what we were in for; 4 rounds of a 200m run, 10 Chest 2 Bar Pull Ups, and 20 Wall Balls.  This was something that we all needed, solid leg work in an typical CrossFit style workout.  Finished in 9:XX with the girls finished shortly after.  This was a really awesome atmosphere to be in and I"m super glad we found our way there.  Thank you CF Distinction for an awesome time.  Your box is totally worth the drive and totally worth coming back to. 

We decided, well 3 of the 4 of us, that it would be awesome to do a second WOD since we were already in the area.  The ginger, aka Liz, thought we had made a wrong turn until we pulled into a lot with a giant tire against the building.  Needless to the Liz wasn't thrilled at first, but was outnumbered and had to get some more work done.  This time we are at Staci Russell's box, Great Lakes CF (226) in Bedford Heights, OH.  Here we met Coach Patrick and two other students that were there for class.  We had a team WOD of 12 rounds of 12 push ups, 12 squats and 12 pulls on the rower each.  This was a killer due to both partners having to do the whole set in a row before they could tag out and get a rest.  We partnered up with someone we didn't know and went to work!  I had Jackie for a partner who was on her third day of CrossFit, the other girls were worried because they didn't think she was gonna get any rest.  This was a 20 plus minute burner that turned out to be super fun for all involved!  Thanks for having us Staci, too bad you weren't there, would have love to seen you.  You have a nice box and was totally worth the pain to the girls. 

Well time to get to more work done and back to more boxes.  Almost all of Ohio is done, only about 20 boxes left.  Till next WOD!!!!
