I drank the kool-aid and I like it!!

Sup fellow CrossFitters!

I've been lurking on the forums for a while and wanted to say hello. I've been doing CrossFit since '07. Introduced to it in Iraq. My platoon commander had journals on his computer and I learned from there.

Before this last deployment (aboard naval ships), we swung by Crossfit Camp Pendleton and had the privilege of getting some of the original equipment used in the first CF gym. In 7 months, we destroyed all four rowers, broke a couple of oly bars, bumper plates, jump ropes. haha. Needless to say the equipment was used constantly. We had our own challenges and classes as well.

I just started training at CrossFit San Diego. When I can I'll go to CF Pendleton with some of my guys. I even bought my own bumper plates and rings, if I can't go to neither.

Oh, and I just finished the 30 day paleo challenge! Performance has been amazing. And for my first cheat day I had a Pizza Hut P-zone, one meduim pepperioni pizza, and a lot of sushi.....wha?

CrossFit, paleo, browsing the forums/affiliates/blogs have put me in the best shape thus far.

This cult is fun!!
