Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

If Anthos succeeds I'm not sure I'd really want to continue to be associated with the brand "CrossFit". Maybe just build a new brand called "CrossGreg"?

Looking for an easy, simple, no-effort baked sweet potato recipe. Preferably that results in something I can keep in the fridge for a week and just heat up as necessary.

The swim should definitely be in there in some form or another, a 700m is fairly short, and super easy with fins. The bike...
