Way to go SFM!!!

I think it's also worth mentioning that when I started in 2009 it wasn't even thought possible for a female to go as fast as a male on FRAN.

That was then...

On Saturday I went unbroken through Fran and ran between bars for a time of 2:20

Two females SMOKED ME.


Male or Female has slowly become a non-factor and I love the fact that FRCF is generally at the forefront for setting that ever rising bar

The best part of the chicks who smoked you on Fran Dozer was that they were at either end of what everyone in the traditional "fitness" world would consider their competetive careers. One in her late teens, and the at 42 with, two kids watching from the back of the room. Rep, for rep, for rep battling until one finished in 2:09 and the other a few seconds behind. Litterally unbelievable!
Thanks for the perspective Skip!

Congrats on going faster Skip! Would be fun to have you & Jodi out on the floor doing the WOD with us if you're ever so inclined.

Thanks for the perspective, Skip, you've come a long way in 10 years.

all this breaking of percieved limits puts us in good company...

"Doctors and scientists said that breaking the four-minute mile was impossible, that one would die in the attempt. Thus, when I got up from the track after collapsing at the finish line, I figured I was dead."

Skip, I always find your 'perspectives' to come at the most opportune times. I think, even those who are not amazing athletes, can gain amazing benefits from doing crossfit--at least, this has been true for me. You reminded me, just before my first marathon, that continual improvement is what counts at the end---not being the very best. When you look back over time, it's seeing that progress that makes you feel successful. I saw a 28-minute deducation from my first half marathon time over the period of several months. I did NOT run more, or harder, to see that change--just more crossfit. Thanks for sharing.
