Re: Some good local press for CF

Thanks for the encouraging words!
Regarding Randy's question about how the newspaper ended up doing the story is kind of interesting ( and humorous):
A few years ago I helped a small private high school set up a kettlebell training program for their soccer team, before I was part of CF.
The soccer coach still uses KBs at the school and at home. He was outside doing some KB training (kind of reminds of how Zach Even-Esh has entertained his neighbors over the years)
His neighbor, who works for the newspaper, wanted to find out what this crazy guy was doing in his yard with those strange looking weights and went over to ask him.
He was pointed in my direction, and did the article.
Zach always says "Pay it forward."

Amazing! That may be the first article written about CF that doesn't make us look like nuts!

Congrats on the article Frank. I'll be stopping in to see you the next time I'm in Sarasota. My travel schedule has been very light the past few months. Say hey to Sue for me.
