Crossfit for Hope

A quick deviation from caterpillar news (I have so many updates and pictures to share!), to ask you to think of the children.

I’m doing a Crossfit event this Saturday, the whole Crossfit community (gyms all across the US and throughout the world) is participating.

It’s called Crossfit for Hope, and you can sponsor an athlete – all donations go to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. You can do a flat donation or give a certain amount per rep that the athlete completes.

It’s going to be brutal! This is the workout:
Three rounds of (one minute each, as many reps as you can):
Burpees
75 pound Power snatch
Box jump, 24″ box
75 pound Thruster
Chest to bar Pull-ups

I think the weight might be lowered for women, not sure though – either way, I can do it. But it will be a long 15 minutes.

If you’d like to sponsor me you can click HERE.

You can also participate if you want! Most Crossfit gyms will have this workout be open to the public, as long as you can demonstrate you are capable of the movements. If you are around the UConn area, you can join us at Crossfit Storrs. Even if you cannot do the movements exactly as described (like if you can’t do a chest to bar pull-up), you might be able to modify them, like using a stretch band to assist with pull ups.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled lepidopterous entertainment.
