Tuesday - WOD 188 - "The Lizard"


Have you ever met a person that just made sense?
Someone that didn't even realize it, but she made people around her smile?

Jennifer and I met such a person the day Liz came into our Box.
Just like all of her friends, she was full of spirit and anxious to learn.

As we all became closer to her, we realized that this is one of those scenarios where a person walks into your life for a few brief moments, shakes things up, leaves a permanent mark, then moves on to other things.

The mark that was left behind?
Athletes and friends come in all sizes, shapes, educational backgrounds, and beliefs.

So we are a better community to have known Liz. Now we wish her all the best as she moves on to new adventures.

The WOD was created by our mutual awesome friend Steph Tee.

This is so sweet, guys!! I hate that I am in Detroit for work or I would definitely be out there doing this WOD. She is lucky to have met all of you too, by the way. She knows that she will forever search for a box, for people like you and come up empty. That is the difference you made in her life. - Katie Franks
