    Hey Allison NYC, just looked at your flickr photos. Your bro Ethan is really adorable. How much do you guys pay for his hairdo? I love it!!!

  • michelle

    Allisonnyc- (warning -not fitness related :) ) does ur borther play with thomas the tank engine stuff? we just cleaned out my twins’ closets and we have one huge huge box full of thw wooden thomas trains, stations, train tracks etc that we are ready to get rid of. if ur mom lives in the tri state area and u have a car and u want to take the stuff for him let me know and i will hold it for u for a bit. my husband is dying to get rid of it but i would prefer to give it to someone i know actually could use it. my son lived for it. we may also have like 5 million thomas the tank engine videos as well
    let me know

  • AllisonNYC

    Michelle OH MY GOSH YES. If it’s Thomas or his Friends I’ll take it. I don’t have one picture of Ethan without an Emily, Thomas or Gordan in his hand. “Santa” got him everything Thomas too. He’s totally Thomas Crazy.
    Thank You! My mom and Brother will be SO happy.

  • AllisonNYC

    Sarena- I’m the official stylist. But now that he’s a big boy he yells at me and runs away when he sees a brush. He says “NOO Asin Go way leave my hair lone. Stop being silly!” He points is finger at me and makes his best angry face.

  • Joe Gasparre

    I just want to thank you again for letting my cousin and I workout at the Black Box. That was very nice of you all. It was my first Crossfit gym experience and it was great. The 12 days of Christmas was really rough, thanks again for your support and coaching. Hope to see you all again.

    My entry– Upon further reflection Juan, you actually had a 1:18 Fran time.
    Michelle, I guess your twins have graduated to Lightling McQueen and the Cars bunch?

  • michelle

    AllisonnYC-oh its thomas alright. ur brother just hit the JACKPOT i can bring the trains in to the box tomorrow. but i will need u to come by to get tracks another time. here is what i have for him:

    i couldn’t find TOAD which i paid $60 bucks for 2 years ago on ebay bc they didnt make it anymorein the US. my son must have hid it somewhere with the idea it is earning interest. :) i will bring these in tomorrow if i can carry them all. they have to weigh less than lifting that awful punching bag right?
    glad i know someone else will enjoy these. my son was obssessed for about 4 years. we could have sent him to college for a year on what we spent on these wooden trains i swear! and every few months suddenly thomas got new friends in a video!

  • michelle

    Dan- well my daughter has graduated to hannah montana and my son to pokeman, from yugioh-niether of which i understand other than they seem to be costing me as much as those damn trainsthiugh they take up less space which is always a welcome change.
    however all is copasetic bc we got them a wii and I LOVE IT. Hey keith-why dont u design a crossfit program for the wii?

  • http://www.crossfitnyc.com Tyler Durden

    Joe & Mike
    It was a pleasure to have you in our Box and doing one of our workouts. Please feel free to come back again.
    Joe, please get out of your backyard once a week and come to visit us.
    Mike, See you in Vegas!
    Say hi to your family and tell them they’re welcome back too.

  • Jeff

    I’m calling shotgun on the vest again. Maybe.

  • http://www.crossfitnyc.com Tyler Durden

    FYI
    My brand new vest is off limits. I don’t want it to get all sweated up by you animals. You can use that blue vest that was donated to the Box.

  • Moon

    [Makes note to happen to stand over Tyler's vest following the completion of the next "12 Days of CrossFit"-scale workout he comes up with.]
    From the windows to the walls, my brother.

  • Paul S

    Well done on the Total Brett. Let’s see 1000 in 2008.
    I hope everyone had a great X-mas. I let myself go for one day and enjoyed pie, chocolate, cookies, etc.. and paid the price. I can’t believe how bad my head hurt and how horrible my stomach has felt. I guess that’s a good thing — my body wants no part of sugar or bad carbs, or so it seems.

  • toddnyc

    Is anyone running the midnight run in central park for New year’s eve? I wanted to do it, but realized I missed the deadline to sign up. I am assuming I can just run it without a number, but was wondering if anyone knew otherwise. Thanks.

  • michelle

    allisonnyc the bag of trains is at the box. tyler was thinking about selling them on ebay to pay for the new space but xuan mai and i looked out for ur baby brother. i do expect a photo of him when he gets to see the bag of loot. :)
    on more interesting (?) news got 4 kipping pullups twice in a row and stayed on the pullupbar BOTH TIMES. also front squated 100 lbs which was a pr for me. but i need sarena and allisonnyc to let me know the % of my bodyweight it was –though i am not in ur guys’ league yet since i know icertainly weigh well over 100 lbs.
    plus 2:01 minute handstand. at wall; Xuan mai -sunny’s was listed at 1:59-so i have to take what i can get.
    also it is sarena’s bday on january 23 so we would like to get some people together to go out for dinner. sarena says wed are not as good so maybe tthursday the 24th- let us know if that works for people. my email is michellefoxman@yahoo.com
    c u all saturday!

  • AllisonNYC

    Michelle- YAY! EthanBoo is going to freak out. I’m going to be his hero which is great because for the last week everytime I go near him he points at me and says Go WAy Asin. It’s breaking my heart. Maybe this will get me back on his good side even though I don’t know what I did to get on his shit list in the first place. If it works I’m going to owe you one! Thank you again. He’ll be so, so happy :)
    Good job on the handstand. I’m guessing you’re the same weight as me since you’re skinnier but taller. In that case you Front Squatted about 85%. Seems like you’re making lots of progress lately. Very exciting! Hard work is paying off. It’s impossible not to make gains when you put the work in but you’re speeding along!
    In other news:::
    I got my 1st CrossFit Cert in the Mail from the KettleBell cert.. WOoHoo. I’m waiting for the other 2 to come. I’m gong to the POSE cert in a few weeks, the OLY cert in a few months and I’m going to another general cert as soon as one opens up.
    I’m going to be the most certified Black Boxer ever of all time. ;)

    love this!
    Michelle, congrats on the handstand and FS and PUs!! You are getting stronger and stronger daily. Are you still zoning, paleo style??
    Btw, I got my handstand off the wall today after Oly practice for about 8 seconds!!
    Keith that was an intense hip opening yoga class today!
    Oh and thanks for that party invite thing. Yeah, guys please come out and play with me on my bday but magaritas or cake for me this year. Keith plastered me so much last year I was sick the next day!

    My what a slip! That should have read no margaritas or cake for me!

  • Kevin

    “Barbara”
    Splits were 3:57, 5:29, 7:25, 8:27, 8:00
    Total time including 12 minutes of rest 45:18
    Felt like crap today. Woke up late and didn’t drink any water at all. Was dehydrated during the workout but gutted through. Thanks to Jacinto for the water and Marisela for the apple. I felt like like passing out when I was done with that WOD. Thanks for the push Brian and great job everyone at the 1230 class.

  • AllisonNYC_23/5’2/118

    Michelle OH MY GOSH. You’re my Queen! There are over 100 trains and I’ve never even seen about half of them! Ethan and my Mom are going to freak. I was so shocked when I saw them that I had to dump them out on the floor and look at them. Amazing.
    I need to give you a huge hug and I owe you coffee for the rest of your life. Thank you. I mean it.

  • sarena

    Allison NYC–Happy Times, Good friends!

  • michelle

    AllisonNYC no problem-the scary thing is that i knew every one of those trains. and i know every song from every video. my son even used to speak with a british accent that is how often he watched the thomas videos. there are a few missing. i dont think i had bulgy there. and like i said Toad. i also dont have tiger moth and by now i am sure there are oodles more. the fog horn makes noise so that wil be really annoying for your mom. i will see what videos we have and bring them in bc that is how my son learned all the characters.
    u will have to think of something else though-i dont drink coffee. but every now and then if u could convince sarena to make me those paleo truffles of hers that would be outstanding!:)
    but really I am very happy to make any little kid happy. i know how much pleasure those trains gave my son.

  • michelle

    sarena-i refuse to organize and/or participate in a bday celebration for u if you are not going to eat cake!! with wheat and frosting and icing. it will be ok.i promise. the paleo police will give u a get out of jail free card. and i will drink ur margarita.

  • alex

    Back in New York, flew in yesterday! I need a few days to come down from my special carb only diet. I feel like crap.
    I will see you guys on Saturday.

  • Hari

    29:53 + 12:00 Rest (5:53, 5:34, 5:49, 5:56, 6:41)

  • michelle

    looking forward to cing u alex! awesome time hari!

  • Moon

    That’s amazing, Hari. I saw a couple rounds of that…did you even sweat???
    AllisonNYC – Looking at you with those trains on the floor made me think to remind you to let the boy play with them a little too. You *said* you were only pushing them around to count them, but what number was “choo choo”?
    Michelle – a 2:01 handstand? That does it – we are going to have to battle!

  • sarena

    Michelle, thats a true friend feeding me crap and getting me a get out of jail free card!
    Hari–you were right and are incredible with bodyweight stuff!

  • http://www.crossfitnyc.com Tyler Durden

    After doing a couple of rounds of the CFWarmup with a 20# weightvest, Coach P told me that I was doing Barbara with him.
    What a horrible experience. Pukie was knocking at the door for the last 3 rounds and my head was pounding. I think I might have sprained a muscle in my back and given myself Rhabdo.
    Here’s to another wonderful day at The Black Box.

  • michelle

    moon-u r on- saturday. and make sure to eat lots of those oatmeal things right before u show up. and ur antlers.

  • Hari

    Thanks, Moon, Sarena,
    I think pacing is key. I made a conscious effort to break everything into sets of three. It seemed to work well.
    Moon, I was actually frightened to see the weight you were squatting for the CFT.
    Sarena, you also seem to be getting scary strong.
    Michelle, you can so start beating up the Upper West Side moms and taking their mortgage money.
