WOD - 04/28/10


As some of you may have seen on CrossFit.com or Primal's website, Amanda Miller passed away last Friday at the tender age of 24. For those of you who don't remember, Amanda came to Primal a few times to train with Christy. She was strong, decked with tattoos, outspoken, and a fierce competitor. She served her country in the U.S. Navy and placed 55th overall in the CrossFit Games last year. Unfortunately, she lost a long, hard-fought battle with melanoma and is no longer with us.

Most times, especially here, I try not to get all sappy and emotional, but this obviously warrants it. As hard as we work day in and day out at the gym, constantly stretching out towards our goals, please never forget what's truly important in life. Be it your friends, your family, your spouse, your pets - cherish what's really valuable in your life. In the end, it won't matter how big your house is, how nice your car is, or how much money you make. It's the people in your life that matter. Never lose site of that.
