recently i went on an annuale hunting trip with my dad, (dave werner) and some of his friends, (Nick Nibbler). well as it turned out i shot my first elk, but i had broken off from my dad and nick, so i was alone on one side of a mountain, with no idea as to how i should gut my animal. after a few minates of contemplation i decided to crossfit it. so stripping down to my pants and an under shirt, and with just my belt and water bottel i took off sprinting up the mountain. granted my feet probably never hit the ground, but it was still a good run. i ran up one side and down the next of a ridge line, and found my dad and nick. after the work of gutting and quartering, we had to hike back to camp for the pack frames. now were i had shot my elk was in a vally about 3.5 miles from our camp and up hill the whole way, in rugged country. (if i were my dad i probably would have shot it 15 miles away and up hill Both ways, but thankfully i did not. after getting the packs, we had to hike back down to the animal, and backpack 50-60 pound bloody hunks of elk meat out, which is some grulling work in and of it's self, plus this was the 2nd round trip i had made, and i had run around looking for my dad. 2 years ago i would have been wiped. but the hike back was actualy quicker then the hike down, and i was the first one back in camp. afterwards my legs were tired but no where near were they should have been after that much work. i would like to give full credit of that to coach, and his crossfit routines. had it not been for you guys, i would never have made that hike, or felt so good afterwards.

Beautiful post.

One way to say "thank you" would be to freeze some of that elk meat and ship it out for Athena . . .

What a great story.
