A Dive and A Dash
What could get you more excited than a plunge into frigid waters and a tromp through the forest with obstacles? It can’t really get much better than this! There is nothing that brings a group together more than conquering a challenge, and that’s what a we are at FOCF, a strong, united community. We are an honest, generous group that will do whatever we can to help others, no questions asked. If you have been a member of FOCF for awhile now you know what we are talking about, if you are new…get ready to jump in and have some fun! Two events are coming up (one is very, very soon!!!!) that you make want to participate with the group: The Polar Plunge and the Warrior Dash.
The Polar Plunge
Benefiting the Special Olympics of Washington State, FallOut CrossFit has created a team. Yes, it is coming up soon…very soon, January 21st, as a matter of fact. But it won’t take much to join so no need to worry about the short notice! Too chicken to take the plunge, don’t stress, there’s a ‘chicken coop’ for those that don’t want to hop on in the chilly water! Join the FallOut CrossFit team here….come on….it’s for a good cause. Raise 50 bucks and you even get a t-shirt! And, the word on the street is that we should have a theme for the team. As much as I truly cannot believe I am saying this (some of you will know why)—The official gear for FOCF Polar Plunge 2012 is 80’s Workout Attire!!!!
Date: January 21st
Time: Check in from 9-11am (FOCF will head there after the Saturday 9:00 am WOD), Costume Contest at 11:30 am, Plunge at 12:00 pm

The Warrior Dash
Test your limits in a mud crawling, fire leaping, 3.55 mile obstacle course. In 2011, a large group of FOCF members participated in the Warrior Dash. Various locations are available, check the Warrior Dash website for more complete details if you are interested in different races. The North Bend, WA event was a popular dash for team FOCF. Now’s the time to register, as we learned last year, the prime times quickly fill up and you’ll be left with the leftovers. Just to note…several FOCFitters have already registered for the Saturday 9:30 am wave. Hey, and it’s close to the Under Armour and Nike outlets!! Once you register be sure to post what time you have chosen in case others want to join you in the same wave!
