Mary & Jamie Collie, who CrossFit out of TJ’s Gym in Marin County, CA worked out here for a week during the summer, when Mary returned with her husband Jamie to visit her family in Cheshire (Mary grew up about one mile from CFC). The Collies, who are now school teachers in the San Francisco area, are on Christmas break and returned for another family visit. I was happy to see them come back in to train again, and intend to “borrow” the WOD they brought with them from home.
I recognized the logo on Mary’s shirt as the logo from the RAGNAR Relay Series, and it turns out they had run one of these already. They were aware of the New Haven to Boston race from checking our CFC website, and were intrigued at the idea of returning to CT just to do this. They are going to figure out if they can make their schedules work; I hope they can, as they are good athletes with great attitudes and positive energy, and can also let other team mates know what is in store, having the benefit of running this type of event before.
