  3. The quiet achiever.. He started Crossfit to get back in shape. I remember seeing a "rawness" to him & quietly chatted to him about how CrossFit is a sport for some people & we (CFP) attend the odd "Games day".
    He informed me that he couldn't make any of them as he works most weekends.. I thought to myself "If he keeps improving like he has, that id pay him a sundays wage myself just to get him to represent CFP" He hasn't
    hit the "Awesome" category just yet,but he'sdefinetly hooked! A really good team man & great guy.
    Congratulations Dan

  9. There was a bit of talk about "Country Dan" in your first few months at the box, deciding on when to hit you with competing and eventually as a possibility for the Regionals Team. Whenever competing was mentioned you mostly seemed not interested, but HC knew to just wait, wait till you got hooked, and woot woot, it happened.

    Congratulations on your number Dan M, I really like having you there at the 9.30 classes, you inspire us all to keep moving and want more for ourselves.

    Well done on being part of the 2011 Regionals Team, now all we need is to see you in those Speedo's and Puffy Shirt......or maybe we don't.

  11. thanks for all the nice comments. crossfit is a great sport, but for me it wouldn't quite be the same without cfp and the people who make it up. the road to 2012 has begun but for now lets fire up lynne on her way to a podium finish at 'the games' 2011.
