I just ran the 5K. This is the first time I have ever ran a 5K without any walking. In January I was overweight (still am) and very out of shape. I couldn't run more than 3 minutes without having to walk. I have been working on my cardio, but still had not run longer than 20 straight minutes until this morning. I completed the WOD in 34:29. I got back into crossfit about 3 weeks ago and I and really seeing a difference. It is awesome how much improvement I have seen in my overall fitness since I started.

Nice work Greg, and the good news is it will only get better as you lose more bodyfat.

Keep it up buddy.

Cheers, kempie

With a running background it has been a good gauge in my overall performance as well as WOD's are now. It gives you a good feeling of accomplishment. Keep up the good work Greg.

One of my favorite quotes:
"That Which Does Not Kill You, Makes You Stronger!!"

Peter, that quote originally comes from Nietzsche. I had been hearing it for years and only a couple of years ago did I find where it came from. Don't know if you already knew that or not, but I like to inform :-).
