I started the morning hitting snooze twice. As I was laying in bed putting off getting up, the Red Friday AOQ texted and said that a 2.0 was sick and he could not make it. So, I got my butt up and got in gear. Since I was dealing with a shin splint, my plan […]Read more "Easy On The Legs…."
After a desperate plea to the PAX to attend Red Friday, I was hoping to see a decent crowd. Unfortunately it was not to be. But 4 PAX gave a go of the Wittman hero WOD. More about Wittman: U.S. Army Sergeant Jeremiah Wittman, 26, of Darby, MT, assigned to the 1st Battalion, 12th Infantry […]Read more "Where are the Bootcampers??"
9 pax met for a 20 deg Red Friday WOD honoring Captain Dan Whitten. When selecting this workout, YHC tried to find something without pull-ups, to honor AOQ’s request. A lot of the WODs have pull-ups! Whitten was selected because it looked innocent enough. Little did I know, it wasn’t innocent at all! Work was […]Read more "Red Friday sometimes sneaks up on ya"
A group of 5 PAX got up and got better in the gloom. The weather was eerie. This morning felt like Summer compared to the 15 degrees that we had a few days ago. It was actually a little difficult to adapt to the humidity after adapting to the freezing temperatures. We honored Danish Army […]Read more "Missing The Cold, Kind Of…….."

A solid group of 8 PAX got up and got better this morning. I knew it was going to be a cold morning, so I thought sprints would help to block out the cold fast. We honored the fallen soldier U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Bradley R. Smith who was killed in Afghanistan in 2010. […]Read more "Sprinting Into The New Year"
A solid group of 7 woke up and started their holiday weekend with a hero WOD at Greenwood’s toughest workout of the week, Red Friday. Today proved no different as the PAX took on what appears to be one of the easier hero workouts on paper. I mean it’s only KB swings, burpees, and situps, […]Read more "Mmmmbop"

To be honest, I completely forgot about my Q at RedFriday until the AOQ tagged me in a tweet. Then I checked the weather channel. 38 degrees and 80% chance of rain, miserable weather. Why did I sign up to Q?? Then I looked at the HCs that had already been posted, I started to […]Read more "Rain….Not so Fast"
10 Pax stepped out of their comfort zone, or maybe stepped into their comfort zone if they are part of the Meathead Club, fight a “Fight Gone Bad”. Generally RED Friday is reserved for a Hero WOD that has been named for a Fallen Hero, but when perusing the list of workouts I noticed we […]Read more "Fight the Fight"
