Gangsta Picture Pages

By January 12, 2014 wod No Comments

Last weekend was another MOMP weekend, so that means the guns came out again. This time there was the added challenge of luck – shoot for your movement, roll the dice for your reps.

We're going to start out with a shout out to our latest Friend of Zenith, Samantha Carrano. All the folks there know that she totally kicked ass in this WOD, but don't realize just how much: this past week was one of her chemo weeks. That's right - she's kicking both cancer's ass and CrossFit's ass at the same time - awesome work, Sam!

Jordan was flipping the tire like a pro. The tire, I should add, that was about as tall as he was. Strong work!
