That is probably the coolest photo I've ever seen. Get'em Don!
You sir, are The Man!
Good on you sir!
...Health is a function of fitness over time.
Love that you do not disappoint with a controversial topic in your CFJ link. And Don is the man!
Crossfit julia, CO. Don's awesome.
thats an awesome picture!
On the CrossFit Facebook page you wrote that Don is from Texas. He is from CrossFit Julia in Lafayette, Colorado. The picture was taken at CF Julia!
Don, I love that shirt and your dedication to the sport!!
Thanks for sharing - I'm inspired!
This picture of Don is awesome & inspirational in so many ways!
As of right now, how many CrossFit affiliates exist, both non-profit and otherwise, around the world?
Really cool shirt! You just made my day. Happy Birthday!
Happy birthday to an inspiration! ... And where can I get that shirt? :)
Don, that is awesome! We love your T shirt.

So following a law of god--in this case polygamy--will help you become god. I wonder how it would feel about that?
In a worldy sense, I suppose that's correct. I wonder if sects exist that allow multiple men but one woman.
Props to Mr. McKenney. Need to show this to some of my older relatives...
Don is a stud. Well done! CFJ article will cause some brain cells to explode.
Strength: Deadlift 5 @ 370# (PR).
Metcon: 2 rounds: 10 cleans w/ 120# sandbag, 20 step-ups w/ 50# dumbbells & 20" box, 150y walk w/ 120# sandbag. 18:14
This is by far the cutest damn picture I have ever seen!
What an awesome guy! Hope to be like him if I can make it to 90.
Don, great pic. I also lift in Converse. If you're ever in Virginia, hit me up!
Great to see, Don! True inspiration!
Did "Justin" today. Results there.
Made up Nukes today, scaled weights of course.
Way to go Don! Hope to be that fit when I'm 90!
That's one unfukwithable 90 year old, he makes us all proud to be crossfitting
Don, you helped me set a new long term goal. Keep kicking ass, happy birthday.
Looks like a hook grip! Props to Mr. McKenney.
I love me some religious discussion in my CrossFit.
Probably my favorite picture so far. Awesome.
This picture made my day! Happy Birthday Don... I hope I'm in that kind of shape when I'm 90!
This is the first Rx WOD I have finished in a long time.
Don, you are the MAN! Happy Birthday! LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS!!
Happy Birthday Don! Keep on keeping' on!
Great T shirt!
Don, you really should not be doing DLs at 90. My grandfather did the same thing and ended up fracturing 3 vertebrae on a lat pull down. Just because you can do it, doesn't mean you should.
@35 Firecracker what rock did you crawl out from under? Besides we've never heard of lat pull downs, what the hell is the that...
Way to go Mr McKenney!!!!
I'm going to comment on the polygamist article here. Ahem.
What does this have to do with Crossfit? In any way? How does reading some dumb "we aren't hurting anybody" polygamy apologist's rant relate to fitness across broad time and modal domains? Same goes for the feminist articles. Can Crossfit not find anything about fitness to write about anymore?
Stepping off the soapbox. Don, you da man.
Can someone tell me where that handsome young man got that t-shirt?
THAT is what it's all about! Keep it up Don!!!
#35 FireCrackerfortheWin....... go back to your troll cave and not return!
Inspiring Don! How much for the shoes? I want a pair just like 'em!
Rock it Don! You inspire me every time I see you walk into the gym. Keep moving and growing.
Participando e louca para ganhar
Mr. McKenney you are great example for us. That is the goal we are working towards. Keep showing us the way.
Amazing, Don! I'm going to be just like you! :)
What a cool intergenerational picture! The young woman in the background behind Don, then the baby in her background. What an inclusive gym!
GOOD GOING MY ANCESTRAL BROTHER
