100819 – Thursday

My friend Emmy Vargas came by last night to check out our box. Emmy and I used to both live at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs a few years ago, and now we’re both back here in beautiful SoCal.

If you don’t know who Emmy Vargas is, she is one of only 3 women to compete in all 3 US Olympic Weightlifting Trials (2000, 2004, 2008), and won a silver medal at the 2007 Pan Am Games. Check out this inspirational video of her making the 2007 Pan Am Games Team! Incredible determination (and in case you’re not a fan of kilos, she snatches 235.4#, and clean and jerks 312.4#).


Wednesday’s WOD:

The Filthy 50…aka “Chuck Norris”
