Another baby to add to the 306 Family!

Shawn and Nicole just had a baby boy!  Congratulations to them.  We wish the whole family a life time of health and happiness.  Here is a message that Shawn passed on.

"Our son Luka was born on Dec 23, just in time for Christmas. He and Mom are happy and healthy after a few days in the hospital.

He is already getting his WODs in. So far burpees, toes to mouth, power snacks, and spit-ups are his favourites. Soon he will be doing bear crawls and putting on his pull-ups.

Gotta go. Luka just pood and it is Dad's turn to give him a full clean, followed by 5 minutes rest.

Shawn and Nicole"

Bonjour from Paris!

Here's a little update from two of our members, Janelle and Brad, currently touring Europe.

"Hi coach!  Janelle and I have been walking lots, and trying to do travel WODS in our tiny European apartments.  Today we visited Crossfit Louvre (you'd have more luck with their website as it's written in French!)  Their box will not be open untill Sept but they do drop ins, (we tried some ring dips and pull ups, box jumps and med balls.  They did a 70 min outdoor wod near the Louve (surreal).  About 35 people there, and we represented Canada / 306 by both finishing in the top 6 - not that we are competitive...  it was 5 rds of 400 m run and 50 airsquats.  Then we "cooled off" with 50 burpees.  Glad to be doing Crossfit again, the folks here are welcoming but we miss you guys!  Going back Mon, squeezing it in between a Versailles bike tour and wine tasting excursions.  Promise to run around Louvre museum and gardens tomorrow!!  See you in a few weeks."

Big deadlifts at 306

Halfway through the day and already some exceptional performances.  Most notably Phyllis Fowler and Brenden Werkamp.  Phyllis who a month before her 65th birthday posted a 135lbs deadlift!  Lookout she is only getting stronger with age.
Brenden Werkamp surprised himself and posted an impressive 45lbs PR and hit the 400 mark!  What will the rest of the night hold.  Can't wait to see!
