Post loads to comments.

We have two tickets to Monday's practice round at the Masters Golf Tournament.  They will go to the highest bidder.  Proceeds will go toward expenses of CF ATL's team travel to Jacksonville for the Affiliate qualifying competition.  Place your bid in the comments section.  Bidding closes out Sunday at 6 PM.

In other news, Mike & Lauren R. have been with us almost 3 years now.  Here's what Mike had to say yesterday in the comments:

Lauren and I have been doing Crossfit for
almost 3 years (we think April 4th 2007) and I cannot express how much I
have enjoyed everyone and everything about the experience. Made some
good friends, been destroyed by some great workouts, have fluctuated
like Oprah (not from Crossfit but from my lovely choice to have numerous
cheat days and have a few diet meals during the week – and beer) But I
do have to say that when we started, I was hooked from the beginning
and have never looked back. Thanks to Mike G and Dan for everything.
Good trainers past and present. Right now, I have on a consistent
basis, Bethanie, Brandon and Jason to thank for keeping on me about form
and hustle, and George for reminding me to take a bath every once and
awhile otherwise he is slobbering all over me. And if case you were
wondering…my new nemsesis is officially Kurt. Peter, you will be
missed and you were close to being named my nemisis. Others may include
Fred because he never shows up and Ken because I like to aim high and
try not to double his times…or possibly triple his times. Nuff
said…Crossfit ATL brings the fun

It has been a joy to have you guys in the gym.

    Mike and Lauren,
    Thank you for being a part of CFATL for the last three years. The gym wouldn’t be the same without you both. I have some great memories of you guys. Remember the double dutch nights, the century club, semi deadly flagpole, Mike almost getting rhabdo, and Lauren cussing out trainers…Ha! Good times!

    Along the same sentimental lines…I’m reading through some of the Paleo Challenge “After” testimonials…I’m pretty close to tears over here. Everyone should go check it out, I’m so proud of all of you.
    Those who participated in the challenge: votes are due to me via email by Monday. [email protected] yes, you can vote for yourself.
    Winner will be announced at 6pm wednesday evening when we hold a “where do we go from here?” meeting…exciting!!!

    Yeah but didn’t you cry because you couldn’t convert kg to lbs in your head?

    Mike and Lauren – thanks for recruiting Amanda… and then me in to gym! It has been awesome to workout and hand out with you all. Kurt has been talking all kinds of shit. He told me “whatever the workout is – I will destroy Mike R…I’ll make him feel like a small infant”

    5×3 thrusters at 50, 50, 55, 55, 57
    Slogged through the sled-drag wod in 18:02;
    3 rounds of: 90# sled drag, 30 pushups, 30 KB swings, out-and-back wall ball throw
    Learned from Fred that 60# sandbag carries are even worse than 90# sled drags.

    Steve – great job today!!!
    Killer job by everyone that suffered through the sled drag WOD Steve described above… Fred (the only who chose the sandbag carry over sled pull), Matt (our visitor from Chicago), Kurt, Andy, and Steve, of course. You guys did awesome!!!

    Thanks for having me today Leah and everyone else. Loved being able to do a WOD outside. Please send the evidence of my first muscle-up when you can. Thanks and be sure to stop by Atlas Crossfit if you are ever in Chicago.
