well here goes, I first came across crossfit in a article in mens magazine about gym jones. I liked what I saw on the website, especially the idea of being able to start my own business out of my garage, but unfortunately I didn't do anything about it. that was about 3 years ago. I recently moved to denton texas where I do hot shot delivery for a living. I've already put on about 15 pounds in 2 months and I wasnt little to begin with I knew I needed to do something. I decided to check out the crossfit website again where I started watching the behind the scenes videos from the 2011 games, I was immediately inspired, I subscribe to the journal and found a local affiliate whom I've visited the next day. I explained my situation and how I would need to have flexible scheduling for the foundations classes, they were very cool guys they said they would work with me in anyway they could. I am headed back from a delivery in boise idaho, when I was looking at the journal earlier I remembered seeing
crossfit radio, so I decided to check it out while driving home, I cannot tell you how excited I am to have ths, I sometimes driving 84 hours in
a 4 day period, you can only talk on the phone and listen to sports talk radio for so long, now I will actually have something educational and enjoyable listen to. I'm starting from the beginning I'm on episode 5, it will probably take me a couple of months to catch up to date but I can't wait. I am so pumped about crossfit, I plan on trying to hit 1 box per trip that I take, so hopefully after a while I will have crossfit friends around the country and I'll be bringing you guys along for the ride. I start my foundations class monday and I can't wait.
p s j j I hope your 2008 wrestling season went well. forgive me for the choppy text, this is speech to text I'm using a while driving.

sincerely your soon to be brother in crossfit, scott
