Once again, The community came together for Alyssa, Michael, and their family! They are all absolutely thankful for the love and support you all showed them from the 5k and the Tribute workouts. For our Tribute Wods, a total of 84 Athletes packed the Gym!! You all did an amazing job and it was such an honor to have all of you there. Friends and family also joined us to cheer on the awesome group of athletes for a few hours! Promise I'll have more porta potties next time!! I wasn't expecting 100+ people! Haha. All of us from CrossFit Unyielding thank you for making this event possible. We will continue to keep Alyssa's spirit alive! Always!
Below is a video for the day of the event. I will add a few pictures that we took on our Facebook page when I have a chance! Please check them out and give our page a Like! You will be able to keep up with all the events that we do. We have one next month that many can join too. Please look into our Unyielding to Cancer. Its for a great cause. Hope to see everyone who was here with us for Alyssa's Wods again!
Hope you are all ready for Saturday! We have 72 Athletes coming together in Honor of Alyssa! If you have some spare time this weekend and want to show your support, come by CrossFit Unyielding to cheer on your family and friends. Never done CrossFit and curious to see what its all about?! Its not about crazy workouts our coaches scheme up or being sore pretty much daily. Its about events like this where our community bands together to show our love and support. You will find that support daily when you walk into our doors, or any CrossFit Gym for that matter! Our Friends at CrossFit Locust Grove, CrossFit Ransom, CrossFit at Monroe Mill, and even one out of state gym, The Shop, from Tennessee is supporting Alyssa, The daily torture from our coaches is just an added plus! We cannot wait to watch everyone and cheer for all of our great competitors! Schedule and Heat times are below!
See you soon!
We had a great turnout at our Live Like Alyssa 5k. 100+ Runners came out to run on a beautiful morning through Oxford and many more showed their support by Donating and helping me coordinate the Event. I talked to many of you and learned how to make it better for next year! We hope to see you all again!
Here are the Times for all your runs followed by a short video of the Run!
Saturday, the 16th, is right around the Corner! I want to personally thank each and everyone of you that have signed up or donated for the #livelikealyssa 5k and Tribute workouts!! It means so much to her family and friends! Words cannot express the gratitude you have all shown. If you have not signed up, you can still register HERE ! You can also show up the day of the event and join all of us!
Information for the 5k Event is in the link above, and Facebook But I will add it here as well!
Will be anywhere you can find it around the Oxford Campus, the nearby Elementary School, or City Hall. Make your way to Clark Street and look for the Check in station.
We will have a Registration Tent to check runners in, hand out bib numbers, and to hand out a small gift! Registration begins at 7:30 and will continue until 8:20. We plan to start the run at 8:30. Our Members from the Gym and Representatives from Classic Race will be in charge of registration. Please make your way over to them when you arrive.
We will speak a little about the event and maybe do a fun warm up together, CROSSFIT STYLE!!! Don't worry... I promise it will not be tough, but it will get you primed for the run! Completely optional of course. We will ask the competitive runners to start at the front of the group, followed by the casual runners, then followed by the jog/walk/with kids crew. For my CrossFit Unyielding members, this is your Saturday WOD!! The Race Course is attached below so you can familiarize yourself with the turns. I will have volunteers and arrows to help guide the way, but just be aware towards the end of the course, as you will return on the same road as where you began!
After the Race
Please grab some water or a banana to refill your tank after the run! We will have a water and snack station available where you all first checked in! Feel free to grab one before the race as well!
Again, Big Thanks to all of you! We will continue to Honor our dearest friend, Alyssa, Next weekend with a Partner Tribute Workout (9/23/17). If you are interested, grab together a team of 4 and come workout with us. All the information you need can be found HERE !
