Great Pic, I especially like the guys in the back with the twigs.

Finally, some wildland fire fighters get some representation!

To all the haters of people who post more than just the load and/or time. Some people, including myself, like to post comments more for themselves for future reference when the wod comes up again. Then I have a comparison tool to see if I am actually improving at all. Not hating, just explaining. Embrace the suck!!!!

I was lucky enough to participate in the Fight For Mike event @ Southern Maryland CrossFit with a very fun bunch. It is an honor to be a part of such an amazing community. Get well soon, Coach Mike.

Put Rich Froning in the seat of that human powered helicoptor. That would be an easy 250k for him compared to the Games haha!

Nice squats hotshots! If you find yourself in Ouray, CO, come on by Hypoxia CrossFit. I'm on the San Juan Hotshots and train at Hypoxia in the winter.

Given the picture, I'm going to throw in a plug for the Wildland Firefighter Foundation (www.wffoundation.org), a great organisation that provides amazing assistance and support for our injured and fallen wildland firefighters and their families across the country. Every year dozens of firefighters are injured on the job and, sadly, we continue to lose a few brothers and sisters each season but the WFF does everything they can to assist. Check out their site and please support them if you can.

Anyone have information on how to help with the Fight for Mike fundraiser. Our local group would probably like to do something like this.

What an amazing group of people on the 'Mike' video. Hope all the fundraising helps Mike:)
And great pic!

Anyone looking for info about Fight For Mike can visit the website http://fightformike.com

We're still taking donations for Mike. You can also get a better look at what the WOD was that everyone did during the fundraiser from the website.
