How are you doing Jeff? Do you like Crossfit? They offer classes at my gym but I am too scared to go... Is it a good mix up from running? Do you feel like it burns enough calories? Just wondering.

Hey Bec. First off, congrats on the wedding. Hope all is well with you and David down in TX. I actually really like Crossfit. I know that each Crossfit location can be a bit different based on the instructor, but I really like the one here in Lehi. My running has obviously dropped, but I expected that and I still try to get 30-40 miles in a week. Crossfit works your core and your legs like crazy, plus they have somebody there to teach you how to do things, which makes it a less intimidating. I'm doing lifts that I've never done before. The down side is that it is a bit pricey. Based on what I know about you, I think you would love it, especially if you could still get some extra cardio in. I would be surprised if they didn't let you come try it for a couple of days to see if you like it.

Thanks for for the congrats! We like Texas, it's warm here. :)

Ok, I will make a goal to attend crossfit after the half marathon I do next week. Sounds like you are enjoying it as well as benefiting from the workouts. Something that is nice about it here is that we don't have to pay for it. We live on base so it's free to military and their families. Otherwise, I don't think that I would consider it.

If it's free I would definitely do it.
