Memorial Day 2013

Memorial Day weekend was stellar. Does anyone use that word anymore? I do. Anywho–it started with the SDIA WOD on Sautrday morning…

My calf wasn’t very happy with me. I forgot the name of the muscle, but I had strained the muscle that goes up the inside of my calf… Something longus.


Here’s what I was doing when I strained it:


Aside from the mile I ran in this WOD, I haven’t run in two weeks. It sucks. I’ve had to sub all of the running at crossfit for rowing. Which for me is much slower.

Here’s a (somewhat comical) video that Jess took of me scaling the finish line wall and then limping to the finish on my screaming leg! Lol

Enough complaining. I went to the lake three days in a row!!! Jessica and her new boyfriend (whose name is also Brad) came with us after the WOD on Saturday. My Brad learned how to wakeboard AND wakeskate in one weekend. He is badass, and got up on about the third try.



My calf was bothering me so I wasn’t exactly able to put in a lot of time, but I had a blast.

Does everyone look that cute while preparing to wakeskate???


The water was a chilly 60-ish degrees. Enough to get good reactions from everyone 🙂

It was different being on a boat where everyone wants a turn to ride. Super cool, though because people all pitch in for gas and snacks and whatnot.



Jessica and Brad made me some birthday s’mores. With candy in them… I am still trying to get rid of that candy.

I am typing this whole entry on my phone. It’s hard! But I am off work because I am about to head to Chicago (via car–10 hour drive) for North Central Crossfit Regionals!

So I will leave you with some food pictures.

Including one of all the sushi we ate after wakeboarding on Monday 😉





I’ll be blogging about Chicago soooooon!!! Have a fabulous weekend!
