Heading East

SFCF is losing another of its finest (and finest Canadians) to the allure of the big cities out east. Eugene is departing this weekend for New York city. Make sure to wish him well! Don't worry though, he is equipped for big-city life having purchased the only SFCF Murse/Weightlifting shoe bag in existence! You will be missed Eugene.

All the best in NYC,

The NutBroker is saddened by your departure... alas another beautiful backsquat lost. Fear Not!Teach others that long neutral spine posistion, you can be like the Johhny Appleseed of backsquatting!
wait, APPLES!?!? no, NUTS!

Todays lesson, almond varieties. As we have seen all almonds are not the same. We can further differentiate them by their general grouping into varities, the most popular of which are: Nonpariel, Mission, and California varieties. What kind do you eat? well, nonpariels are broad and flat and make up most of the almonds sold by them sleves and raw. Missions are often in mixes and are shorter and almost cylindrically round. The cal varieties are even longer than the NP's, but not quite as round as missions... kinda inbetween.

Eugene, the nutbroker has hopes you spread your good almond knowledge along with your backsquat in your travels! good luck!

The Nut Broker better broker for some macadamias, because I've figured out who he is.

Aaamonds, anyone?

I will bring the Mac-Nuts tonight. Let's keep it hush-hush and maybe the nut-broker will grace us with some more nut-knowledge.

Thanks for all the well wishes guys! I really hate to leave but I'll be back to visit plenty since family is out here.

It's funny to think back on that cold winter night nine months ago when I almost died doing my first Crossfit workout when I couldn't even begin to keep up with anyone compared to where I am today. Crossfit's been amazing to me, but more importantly it was the support of all the amazing people in our little shack behind the Sports Basement that kept me coming back for more.

I'm proud to call you guys friends, and if any of you find yourself out in NYC let me know!

Have a ball in the big apple! I'm out of town this weekend and am sorry I won't be around to say Bon voyage in person.

We're sorry to see you go Eugene. Stay sharp in NYC. Shabu shabu will be waiting for your return visit.
I know you'll just be getting settled in, but I'm going to be in CT near Hartford w/ Adam and Cheryl from the 23-28th. Maybe we can do something for a day.
