Attention 818ers! November is here, we turned the clocks back this past weekend and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Here's what you need to know for the month ahead:
Whole Life Challenge Finale - If you're participating in CrossFit 818's Whole Life Challenge make sure to mark you calendars and show up for the final event this Saturday, November 8th! If you're not in on the challenge you can still show up and cheer on your fellow athletes during a (very) challenging workout. More details and heat times will be posted on the blog later this week.
Annual Fall Picnic - Not much changes in the Southland other than the clocks during autumn. We still enjoy weather that peaks into the 80s during the day and CrossFit 818 has made it a habit to take full advantage of this by having our second Annual Fall Picnic! We invite you, your friends and your family to join us at Emerald Isle Park (map) at 1:00 PM after the WLC Finale. Just like last year we will have a potluck and a pick-up game of some kind so bring a plate of food to share and clothes fit for running around in!
Thanksgiving Schedule - CrossFit 818 will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 27th and we will likely have a short schedule the following day. Stay tuned for more updates!
World Weightlifting Championships - Many of you at CrossFit 818 have taken an interest in weightlifting and participated in our specialty classes on Monday and Friday nights. The World Weightlifting Championships are being held in Kazakhstan (home of 2-time gold medalist Ilya Ilyin), begin on November 4 and conclude on November 16. This is one of the stages where athletes can compete and qualify for the Olympics, so if you want to follow along you can find all of the pertinent information and schedule updates here.
Yvette is looking forward to the picnic, are you?
