I did the WOD at 5:30pm and as I was finishing up round 12 and the 6:30pm class was arriving. I was thinking that I had nothing left to give and then a bunch of 6:30 folks rallied around me to encourage me to keep going. It was the best. It was the epitome of Crossfit. 5:30pm with Coaches Brittany and Brian. This WOD was no joke.
