This time last year… Woody had a great post about The CFC Blog.
Goodbye, but definitely not farewell
First, I apologize for taking so long to say good bye. Between relocating from Chicago to South Carolina and then starting a new business, I have been very busy. I can’t believe almost a month has passed since I left Chicago. So, it is with mixed emotions that I write this post. On one hand, I am happy for an exciting new chapter in my career, on the other hand, I will miss the people whom I have come to know at CrossFit Chicago. Earlier this week, I saw read two posts on the CrossFit Chicago site that hit home for me. One was sad and the other brought a smile to my face. First, My best to Jonny in his future endeavors. Then, it brought a smile to my face to hear that Kevin J was named January member of the month. Kevin, we have only had limited WODs together but I enjoyed the camaraderie and our conversations, so congrats.
I want to make this post short and sweet because I will be back in Chicago frequently and look forward to dropping in for a WOD with you all from time to time.
Some of you may know that I have traded my life behind a desk in the financial services industry in exchange for new life as part owner of a new box with my sister and brother-in-law in Hilton Head, SC. It is with mixed emotions that I leave Chicago and especially CrossFit Chicago and make the move to Hilton Head. Besides CrossFit, hockey was a big part of my athletic life and instead of a five-minute drive to Johnny’s Ice House, I now drive an 90 minutes to Charleston to play hockey down here.
Anyway, I want to thank the coaches particularly, Kelly, Bryce, Val, Randy, Sara, Jonny, Kate and Rudy for all you have done for me, and if nothing more, I hope I made you laugh at some of my ridiculous moves. I was humbled by my experience at CrossFit Chicago, just like many others, I walked through the doors at first thinking I was in good shape. But after the first WOD, I realized how unathletic and really out of shape I was. On a day-to-day basis, I will miss the community but look forward to forging our own community. Please, please remember that if you are ever in or around Hilton Head Island, please know that you welcome to drop in to our box in Hilton Head: Reebok CrossFit Coastal Carolina. Coaches are welcome as well. All my best.
