Did I tell you that Anthony and I started Crossfit?
No, I didn’t. We decided we really wanted to branch out and find a like-minded social network, and additionally, get strong and fit. What better way than CrossFit Northside? It’s a big, friendly box, with the most charming and attentive coaches and cross fitters you can imagine. I know everyone thinks their box is the best, but after just the foundation coach and our first real WOD, I know ours is. Speaking of our first WOD…
By the way, that weight is in kilos. It took me a while to realize that I front-squatted 99 lbs! I really appreciate our coach, James. He spent a lot of time with me making sure my elbows were lifted high enough and my form was accurate. It makes a big difference when you’re a frightened newbie to have a watchful coach.
After CrossFit, we came home, quickly showered, and Ant said “can you do lunch?” I said sure, and went to the kitchen to start preparing. After our WOD, I needed protein, and quick. So, I grabbed some tuna and some sardines. Anthony put a pot of water on to boil, and tossed a few pasture-raised eggs in there. I went to our garden and chopped some fresh chives. Some salt, pepper, lemon juice and olive oil, and Buried Treasure Tuna was born.
