As I looked through the pictures from the Hope fundraiser, the V of John Carey's arms on this lock out jumped out at me. It was a V for Victory. I remembered watching John pour his guts out on these thrusters and this was the last rep on his third round. You all can relate to how thusters feel 16 minutes into a WOD. Knowing there are no more thrusters is always a victory.
In another way, yesterday was a great victory in terms of having a fun charity event with some friends from West Sac, Warriorz, Anywhere, Stompin Ground, Woodland, and Rocklin (sorry if I missed any). The event raised about $5,500 from what I cold find between CFES, West Sac and Warriorz. It was also a great day for getting some new faces involved in a fun and semi-competitive event.
Thanks to everyone who donated and everyone who came out for the suffering and the supporting of the suffering.
