Come join the Bash!

There are only THREE DAYS left to register for the Big Horn WOD Bash next Saturday! We will be keeping the price at $50…that’s $10 in savings! We’d like to share with you a little story from one of last year’s participants, the one we all know and love, Feliz…

“The Big Horn WOD BASH is a members’ only – Wait. The Big Horn WOD BASH is a FAMILY event for members, of pure friendly competition. Three WODs in one day! It’s an opportunity for us to workout with other family we don’t normally see, and bring our best game. After being under the radar for almost a year, I am glad to be back at the box in time for the Big Horn WOD Bash. It’s a time for me to set my own PR marker and for the love of Pete, I want a prize this year! AND……there’s food. A kick off to the BBQ season, compliments of the coaches! Simply – It’s just plain old FUN!!! Come one, come all! Can’t wait to see you there! Bring your best game. I’ve been working on mine for the past five weeks (infinitely scaled, of course “-)”

- Feliz

Hola, from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico!

How many of you have been on vacations that include a “family intinerary?” Oh, I have been on a few; however, for this particular vacation, I’ve been getting really good at doing one thing: nothing. And boy has it been nice! We do, however, miss you all, and are looking forward you return. See ya’ soon!

For the crust
For the pudding
  • 1 (14 ounce) can of coconut cream* (placed in a fridge overnight)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup (or other sweetener of choice)
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter (or other nut or seed butter)
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • extra coconut cream, to garnish (optional)



Fear and reluctance are in the forefront of our minds as we contemplate,
This new journey that we’re on…the journey of our new fate.

A fate that is written in our souls, yet why did it take so long to find?
Perhaps because we were lost, but now we’re with our own kind.

This new family that we’ve discovered is not of our own blood;
But it’s with this new family that we’d suffer with…through the muck and mud.

We are “E plurbis unum” — let not thrusters bring us to our knees,
Because, WAIT! Let us not forget about the ill-fated, BURPEES!
