I always tell people it’s like a big family here, and it’s true. But it’s also more then that, it’s part of a even bigger family, the CrossFit Family. And when things don’t go your way there a community so big to stand behind you to help you through the storm. We all talk online, post on message boards about the workouts from the mainsite and compare times and weights. “I’m better than you!”, “No you’re not, my Fran time is 3:05!” Banter back and forth. But sometimes you hear about a story that is makes you realize what it’s all about. Lauriel Luther a member at CrossFit Phoenix and training others at CrossFit Full Strength and a 2011 Reebok CrossFit Competitor ranked 29th on April 2nd had a chance to make it to the Games this year. But is currently in the hospital to have a 5cm mass removed from her right temple. Read more about her story, from a letter sent by her Friend to CrossFit HQ, “Just Another WOD“. I don’t know this person, but I don’t have to either to wish her the best and a speedy recovery back to CrossFitting!
