I can’t think of too many people that want to wake up to see this announcement in their inbox. Sorry to bring you bad news on a Monday. Come on down and suffer out the Filthy 50. Remember, this is one of our benchmarks for the board. If you do it Rx’d, you are a contender to make the top 5 and have your name revered by all who pass through the WCCF doors.
I have a special relationship with the Filthy Fifty (as I imagine a lot of people do). For two reasons.
Number 1: when I was first introduced to CrossFit, it was by a friend who was visiting my house and showed me videos online of some of the workouts. The first two videos I saw were “Nasty Girls” and “Filthy Fifty”. Being male and a recent college grad, my first response was something along the lines of “pshhh, it doesn’t look that tough”….HAHAHAHA! What I had yet to understand was that the amazing athletes I was watching simply made it look easy.
Number 2: The first time I did this WOD, took me over an hour! I thought I was going to puke 1/3 of the way in. It was …. special.
Come on in and give this WOD a try. As coach Scott says: “You gotta go there sometimes”
