(10/20) After a delayed flight, a terrible rental car experience and a dead cell phone, yes I was late, I finally made it to CrossFit Voltage (300) in Charlotte, NC. Here I met Donald & Ashley Forbis, owners and head trainers of CFV. I missed the snatch training, but I did get a couple at 145# just so I wasn't the only guy on the board without a number. Then for the WOD. We all ran an 800m run then drew a WOD from a hat as we ran back in the building. Our choices were Fran, Nancy, Helen, ½ Cindy, or Jackie……I drew Jackie! Jackie is a 1000m row followed by 50 thrusters and 30 pull ups. Now this is harsh punishment already but the 800 added a new level of difficulty. There was one Helen, two Jackie’s, and three ½ Cindy’s. The crew at CFV that night was awesome. I even got to meet one of my Facebook friends, Wendy. Donald and Ashley were kick ass owners and totally welcoming to me. I even got to meet their family and talk for like a half hour after. There location was a bit out of the way, but totally worth getting lost for! I look forward to getting the chance to do it again, Voltage was shocking!!!!
