My lovely girlfriend Lynne turned 36 years young today...we had 13 people in class, and following a warmup, we started the morning by making Lynne climb the 17 foot climbing rope to retrieve her "gift." (Ain't that romantic?!)

Her "gift" was a card I had affixed to the top of the rope with a picture of her and Annie Sakamoto on it that said "What do these two hotties have in common? (Besides their hottness?)"

You open it up and it said, "As of August 2007, they will BOTH be Crossfit Trainers!"

So yes...I bought her the Crossfit certification for her birthday.

Yeppers, Joe...Valencia! I'll be coaching at that one, and I've got six people signed up so far for Level One.

Sarena, I'll post some pics on www.valleycrossfit.com a.s.a.p.

For now, I'm taking my funny little honey out to dinner....
