I heard about CrossFit from another forum and have decided to try my luck this way. I currently weigh anywhere between 210-220, and am looking to get down to 190. I just moved into a house and slowly but surely (probably more slowly than anything) am trying to convert some of the space to accommodate some equipment.

Anyways my ultimate goal is to run a half marathon next May. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: New Guy

Thanks for the warm welcome. This summer I hit the gym hard but I seemed to just stay in a rut. I'm hoping this will be a nice shock to the system.
