He's way too clean for that pic to have been taken at the mud run.

Let me first start by saying Goggins is a fricking MACHINE! Mike and I (pictured Middle and Right) hit our first mile in Boots and Uts at 6:12. Goggins was 500 Meters IN FRONT of us!!! The entire Mud Run we watched him pull AWAY and AWAY. After my VERY close PR, I found Mike and immeadiatly asked him where Goggins was. I had to introduce myself and see what his time was. NOT ONLY, had Goggins finished FIRST Boots/Uts, BUT he set a NEW course record at 47 minutes for a 10 K in Boots, pants and over 11 mud pits, rivers, obstacles, hills, and tunnels!!! I thought WE were bad ass CrossFitters!!! This Program has changed my LIFE. Elite Fitness Bootcamp has grown, and with it, I incorporate CF workouts AT LEAST 3 days a week. After I met Goggins, I KNOW CF works. It was an honor to share the Medal stand with both Mike Smith and Operator Goggins. In Goggin's words, "I'm a Muscle Up Mother-F@#$er!"?"

Dave, Mike, when you read this...Im proud to share the stand!

Rest day? I am feeling pretty well rested this morning. I'm going to do a light workout this evening and try the sandbag mile with my 100lb bag.

Congrats on the great finish with the Camp Pendleton Mud Run.

That Goggin's guy has forearm just like me. They'd look more at home on an anemic 12-year-old girl.

ehem...those are some beautiful looking men. :)

Comment #8 - Posted by: Karyn at October 24, 2005 8:45 AM

It's in response to the CFHB pic from the last Mud Run in June.
As for that Mud Run, I'm all in. Already committed with a neighbor and her friend. Wife is certain she'll watch me suffer rather than run.

Operator Goggins; Muscle-up Motherf%$#^r!
Priceless. Thank God he's a good guy.

Tabata This- today, due to social schedule adjustment


Awesome workout!

Comment #13 - Posted by: Van at October 24, 2005 12:28 PM


What kind of grip have you been trying? Here is how I was taught to do proper gripping for deads. It is the alternating grip where you start out with lower weights with your week alteration (for me that is left palm in, right out), and then once you are hitting the heavier weights use your stronger grip (so for me again that is left palm out, right in).

Don't know if that helps but there it is nonetheless.

Group Moffett completed Sunday's WOD today. A few people were sick and some were returning from two weeks off, but everyone did great.

Comment #21 - Posted by: Adrian D at October 24, 2005 6:10 PM

No offense fellas, I still like the pic of all the girls after the mud run.

Hey, at least I'm honest! ha ha

Comment #22 - Posted by: Zach at October 24, 2005 6:15 PM

Took 5 days off to give my shoulders a rest. Did "Tabata Something Else today". Definately could feel the days off. 454 total

Comment #23 - Posted by: DJ at October 24, 2005 6:33 PM

Instructor pranger here. Glad to see you haven't changed from when you went through bud/s. I hope that everything is going well for you. keep up the good work and kick more ass in further events. By the way, hows about some salt in the wound. Meadows made it through bud/s the second time around. I don't know if you knew that.


Comment #24 - Posted by: mad max at October 24, 2005 6:38 PM

I see some things never change. Drop me an email sometime.


Comment #25 - Posted by: Boss at October 24, 2005 6:57 PM

Keeping up with the Tabata tradition, did two sets of Tabata sprints this morning. Went better than yesterday mostly because I didn't throw up.

Comment #26 - Posted by: MarkM at October 24, 2005 7:20 PM

Comment #29 - Posted by: Mike Joyce at October 24, 2005 9:13 PM

Took the rest day to work on my rowing form with good success. Took better than 6 minutes off my 5K row from two days ago with a simple change in form. Got in 5K at 23:40 - two days ago it was 29:59. Tickled to death, without the long term suffering brought on by yesterdays death by Tabata.


Comment #30 - Posted by: Baron at October 24, 2005 9:24 PM

DOCTOR "G", BIG G, ANIMAL, A@@HOLE, FREAK, MACHINE, etc.. Call him what you want but one thing won't change and that's David Goggins. He's what all warriors should aspire to be. Way to represent Goggins.
Your little brother.

CAN'T BELIEVE MEADOWS MADE IT THOUGH HELL WEEK. Something's just ain't right about that. ANyways, here I am on the other side of the fence looking in so maybe that's envy coming out of me.

THANKS CROSSFIT! Knocked out 34 pullups, no kipping, this morning in one set (personal best. My run times are down to about :5::50 - :6::20 PER MILE. Pushups are up to 150's per set. CROSSFIT IS HANDS DOWN THAT BEST PROGRAM ON THE PLANET. Doing the Florida IRONMAN on Nov. 5th, I'll keep you posted.

Comment #31 - Posted by: dobberz at October 25, 2005 8:30 AM


Was using alternating grip (left out right in for lighter weights, right out left in for heaver).

First time I've done any "heavy lifting" since starting crossfit. My previous PR was only 273lbs (poor, I know)


Comment #32 - Posted by: Baz at October 25, 2005 9:46 AM

I'm not afraid of you and never will be. Don't think I won't haze you again new guy...nice run.

Comment #33 - Posted by: Lowell at October 25, 2005 4:58 PM

The "tiny forearms" comment and anyone else who wants to talk trash about Goggins can do so freely, he's used to it. The trash you speak fuels the fire and excites the demons that dwell inside him. Also, Goggins doesn't claim to read well and has no interest in using a computer. Talk all you want if it makes you feel better, just know this, he's training while you're eating, sleeping, bar-hopping, telling lies, and playing golf.

Comment #34 - Posted by: DOBBS at October 26, 2005 7:52 AM

Congratulations to all three of you. Sgt. LeClair you have always strived to be the very best, and you are.

Keep up the great work...
