Degraw Street Etiquette 101
CFSBK often takes to the streets for our workouts. We run, lift, throw, jump and drag on the sidewalk on a regular basis. As fun as it is to push a prowler or run sprints outside, we have to consider our residential and commercial neighbors. We’ve had a few “nudges” from our friends on Degraw Street that sometimes it can be difficult for pedestrians to walk if we’re in full swing during a WOD. So in order to work better with our neighbors, we’ll be using the street a little less and we ask that you guys be mindful of folks walking by when we do. Here are some easy tips to stay safe and help us maintain the ability to use the street:
– Slow down when you run in and out of the building. Adding a couple seconds to your time is a better alternative to running full force into someone on the street or signing into the gym.
– If you’re working with an implement (barbell, kettlebell etc), make sure that you keep it under control and don’t let yourself trail into the middle of the sidewalk where people can’t get by or are in danger of getting hit. Try to keep your overall footprint as small as you can.
– Pedestrians have the right of way on the sidewalk. Try to run around folks with plenty of clearance so you don’t startle/run into them. If space is tight, slow down so you can safely maneuver through them.
– Be aware of your surroundings. As tired as you might be you still need to be vigilant about what’s going on around you. Keep your eyes open for skateboarders, trucks coming in/out of garages, people walking out of boulders and any debris on the street.
Remember that you represent CFSBK when you’re on the street. Try to be curteous, adaptable and rational when hitting the pavement.
Remember to take your log book home this week. The crate is overflowing and we want to make sure all our active members don’t have to sift through 30 lbs of journals to find their book. You can bring your log book home on Muprh day (Sunday)
