Merryn, Soph and Sonn competed at CFNZ’s masters league on Friday. (where are the masters men this time?!?) Sonn pictured mid way through the barbell complex. She took out second place in the scaled division! awesome.
Deadlift 4 x 3 rep
Dave A ran the hilary trail on Saturday, 78km which included 3.3km of climb! His time was 14hrs and 39 minutes. He’s pictured nearly at the top of a climb 300 meters above sea level, the Manukau heads in the background. 10 minutes earlier we were at sea level! His next mission is the Tarawera Ultra Marathon early next year.
Front squat 4 x 3 rep
Hey CFB members, any company during this run would be a huge boost! The easiest section would be 12km (Piha to Karekare). The most helpful section would be the end, anywhere between Whatipu and Titrangi.
If you don’t feel like running, feel free to join my wife Phoebe and be a supporter along the way as well.
The full details of when and where he is running (it’s through the Waitakeres) can be found here
Also there is a Facebook group here
One of our long term members, Mark Gordon, passed away last week after a long battle with cancer. Mark was an amazingly strong and positive person who fought right to the very end. Our thoughts go out to his wife Linda, Cara, Damon, Josh and the rest of Mark’s family and friends at this sad time.
Mark’s favorite exercise at CrossFit was the Deadlift, achieving 200kg at age 55 and he had an amazing ability to hold front levers like the above pic better than anyone else in the gym!
If you’d like to come to the funeral to support his family, it will be held at City Impact church on East Coast road at 11am on Wednesday.
