This is the LAST event for the CrossFit Open 2012! Tonight at 5:30, the Green Army hits it! Everyone else – including members of the Team – will try their Thrusters at 7am, noon, and 7pm. Last week, the Noon group was 'the big one!' Come and make noise! Special thanks to Mary and Shane, who warmed up at 7:45pm to hit the unknown at 8…and then drive through the night to Toronto to catch a plane this morning!

I've been very lucky, in the past several months, to work with CrossFit Games Media (and still am, and do!) One of the better pieces I've had published has been this one, with a great message for women who are scared of lifting weights. Maria Nahri is hoping to qualify for Miss Universe. Imagine a CrossFitter wearing that crown, and the difference she could make for young girls! Click here to read the article, link through to her page, and vote to get her in there!
