This time last year… was a rest day!
Hello! My name is Logan.
This is a very bittersweet message. Next week my family and I move to a new home in Overland Park KS. This week I say goodbye to my CrossFit Chicago friends and coaches. To say the least, we are thrilled to move from our condo life in Bucktown to a spacious home, yard, nearby family etc. Our time in Chicago has been filled with great experiences and people and just overall good times. As this move has drawn closer I have thought about the things I will end up missing the most from my old city and as you may guess CFC is at the top of that list. Let me share a bit about my story with CFC.
I joined CFC in September 2011, and like many before they find CrossFit, I had become used to living too high on the hog and was a bloated, lazy man. Sweet SaraC took me through the Baseline workout that I made it through in about 6 or so minutes (banded pulls up, knee pushups). I flailed around on the floor for about 45 minutes after this, unable to speak. 3hrs later I started to regain basic motor functions…it was BAD! My first workout happened to be a partner WOD with AdamB, a 20min AMRAP of farmers carry’s/sprints. Again I resembled someone that just got shot and electrocuted at the same time. Over time I lost the bands, got quicker, shed weight, recovered faster, and started going Rx… like in a montage! I even did a Paleo Challenge with my wife in June and got so freaking sexy. Fran, Murph and many other Heroes and firsts will always be remembered inside CFC’s walls. I learned to be tough again here, to embrace the path that pain leads you down, to taste the victory of not giving up.
I want to extend my gratitude to the coaches of CFC and to the community of amazing individuals. Each and every coach has made an impact in my life by ingraining discipline, form, drive, and perseverance back into my heart. Thank you for what you do. To all the members I have had the privilege to get to know and train with, thank you for making this such a positive environment. This year has been full of change for my family and you all played a much larger role in making it a success than you may know. The Battison’s thank CFC and wish each of you the very best.
