    Hey!! Time to paint the gym!! We will begin painting Saturday (may 8) at noon and would love some volunteers to help on both Sat and Sun. Volunteers will be paid in beer. Saturday night, Jonathan and Ryan have invited everyone to their “SOmething de Mayo” party. THey will be donating all the leftover booze to the painting party on Sunday May 9th that will begin at 11am.
    Next hydrostatic bodyfat testing will be June 8th. That whole first week of June will be preparing us for our next “paleo challenge” that will begin June 14th…details to come. Still looking for more feedback/suggestions for this next round.
    In addition to being painted, the gym is being cleaned…there will no longer be a grace period for dirty dishes/tupperwares/coffee cups/underwear/protein shakers, etc left behind. If I find it, without a name on it, while no one is at the gym, it is going in the trash. If you want to keep it at the gym, clean it, put your name on it, and put it in a logical spot (next to the sink/in a cupboard).
    Next gym cookout: Friday May 14th.
    Gym will be closed the weekend of May 22/23 for a level 1 cert. We will plan a run or another fun activity.
    ALSO, VERY IMPORTANT: May 2010 is the last month we will be providing a big unorganized binder for people to record their workouts in. We will however provide the service of Beyond the Whiteboard. Click on “Online workout log” on the left to see how to sign up. The other option is to keep your own little book. I think you will find this much easier for you as well.
    Marshall and Lori Jones have kindly invited everyone to Marshall’s birthday party on June 19th. It will be catered by Taqueria del SOl…I’m trying to figure out what the heck is going to happen in regard to the fact that this is scheduled during the first week of the next paleo challenge….
    Great job to everyone last night. I’ll be honest and say that I fought back some tears as people were PRing on their front squats…I know, I”m lame. Oh well.

    After looking at the calendar and taking a few things into consideration, this next challenge will begin June 7th (bodyfat testing June 8). The week prior will be for “before metrics” and the challenge will end July 2nd.
    We will have a longer one in the fall.

    You’re not lame Bethanie, you are just truly passionate about what you do. Thank you so much for taking the time to work with me on my squats and everything else in Crossfit. Thanks for letting me not settle for a mediocre squat. I look forward to continue to learn much more from you

    Thanks! I was thinking of helping paint but I’m probably going to be tied up with my mom. But working out for sure since Saturday is unlikely.

    Sign ups for the hydrostatic bodyfat testing on June 8 is now at the gym. You must pay to save your spot. We sold out fast last time so I recommend you get on it!..especially if you plan on participating in the next paleo challenge. $25 for members, $45 for nonmembers.
