Just a few pics from our low-key Halloween. We didn’t really have any plans this year, and as the past few years have net us very few trick-or-treaters and a TON of leftover candy, we decided to just skip it and do our normal routine. We didn’t even carve pumpkins this year, kind of a bummer, but we’ve both been working hard, and it’s been rainy and non-pumpkin-y anyhow.
We put together a little event at CrossFit Fringe. We’ve done so much programming and event prep this month that Halloween was refreshingly understated. We had a good size evening class with the choice of 3 benchmark WODs for our athletes:
30 Clean and Jerks for Time (135/95)
I really wanted to do “Fran” (believe it or not, I have yet to do it sans band-assisted) but since we’re now just a week out from HOA (!!), I decided not to risk my hands. It’s definitely high on the list for post-HOA, as are about a million other skills and WODs I haven’t done due to training. So Neil and I both tackled Elizabeth with good times — 7:30 (me) and 9:00 (Neil) respectively. Definitely would have been faster without a belly full of candy and rings in closer proximity.
This is the first year we’ve both had the thought that it would be fun to have a kid to take trick-or-treating. We’ve always relished having the ability to do whatever we like on holidays — especially the lesser holidays without family obligations. But this year, just seeing all the parents with kids dressed in squishy, fuzzy costumes with face paint and big bags of candy — I felt admittedly jealous. Crazy?
Thanks as always to the Barbell Shrugged YouTube channel for the excellent reference videos and the continued valued resource to so many CrossFitters.
