Post thoughts and times to “comments”.

It is with a lot of pride and a lot of sadness that we say goodbye to Ben Sheldon. Ben joined CrossFit Minneapolis almost a year ago with the goal of one day being selected for Officer Candidate School in the United States Marine Corps. Well, a lot of steady and committed training has paid off and this Friday, Ben will depart for Quantico, VA, where he will undergo the rigors of OCS. Ben has been a staple at both the 11:00 am and 4:00 pm classes and he will be missed. Good luck as you head south, Ben. Stay in touch and make us proud. And finally, thanks for doing your part to serve our country in these tough times.

At coffee today, Ben asked if I would consider programming a pull-up intensive WOD on his behalf – “every ninety kipping pull-ups I do I seem to increase my PFT count by one dead hang, I could use the help”.  I hope this works, Ben!
