Video of the Week: Here’s a fun vid of Linda and Steve H. swimming with a whale shark! Steve reports, “We were snorkeling about 30 miles northeast of Isla Mujeres off of the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico. Every year during July and August whale sharks congregate in large numbers to filter feed the water that is rich in bonito and snapper eggs in that area. First day we were there they estimated there were about 200-300 of them spaced out over a few square miles.”
This Week at CFSBK in Review
1. Coach David raised a glass to Coach Noah, whose last class with us was Sunday. We miss you, buddy!
2. Jude G. told us about her experience at Craftsbury Sculling Center in Vermont, and we encouraged you to sign up for Coach Nick’s marathon row this Sunday. There’s still time! Proceeds benefit Row New York, and you can donate here even if you can’t make it to the row.
3. Also happening this Sunday: we’ll be showing the final day of the CrossFit Games on our big screen at 597. After Anti-Gravity, around 3:00pm, we’ll start grilling and screening the Sunday events at the gym. All are welcome! The gym will have some beer but otherwise, BYOB.
5. The second-ever Iron Maidens Lift ‘n’ Learn Session will take place at CFSBK on Sunday, July 31st at 2:00pm. Get ready for some Bench Pressing followed by a clothing swap! Head over to the event page for more details.
