A big B Day shout out to Nick GP!  No better way to celebrate your B Day then hitting a 40# full snatch PR at 155!!!!!!!  This guy has been on fire the last 6 months in here.  It is without question the year of Pomo.  You couldn’t find a nicer guy then Nick.  THis guy is positive in every situation, whether things are up or down.  Nick works his ass off too.  There was a time, not to long ago, when Nick could not even Snatch an empty barbell.  Fast forward a little over a year and he is throwing around 155!  It has been very rewarding to sit back and watch this guy develop as an athlete.  Happy B Day Pomo! Damn we had some PR’s today.  To many to mention but I got to give some love to Troy M with a 30# Pr at 205 and Becky S chasing a PR for a long time and got it at 98#! We have a fun challenge coming at you tomorrow, you really have to game this thing!

So we will have a slightly adjusted schedule for this week.  We will be open Thanksgiving for one WOD at 9:30am.  Friday will be adjusted to have two opportunities to get in the box.  We will have a 9:30am class Friday mornings and a 4:30pm open box.  All else will be the same.  The 38 North X Mas bonanza will be held at Coach Urban, Nick, Hannah, and Marco’s home in West Petaluma on Dec 16th.  We will be repeating last years theme of Ugly Christmas Sweater/outfit.  I will be grabbing a keg and a number of handles of booze from Costco.  Please bring some food to share and any booze/drinks you want to add to the mix.  The goal is to get back to the Buckhorn for karaoke that night.  Lets make it fun, lets make it memorable, and let’s make it weird.  You guys never fail to make this night a great one.  Looking forward to seeing ALL of you there.  More details to come.  A big shout out to one of our athletes Natalie D, who has started her own business!  Natalie has been Microblading for some time now and felt it was the right time to start her own thing.  For those of you who don’t know, and I didn’t, Microblading is a form of permanent makeup for eyebrows done with featherlike strokes that mimic hair. Natalie tells me it is innovative and exciting and she would love to tell you more about it if you’re interested. You can find me on Instagram at BladedTattsbyNat or call text 707.364.2552.  Give that girl a call!  You guys have been crushing these PR’s all month so I might as well give you another opportunity.  Christmas came early!  Have fun and if you are feeling it push that weight, if not get a good Snatch session in!

Mark your calendars for Sat Dec 16th, the 38 North X-Mas party is back!  If you didn’t make it last year, be sure to get there this year.  Details to follow but the date is set!  I talked to Leanne and she said the box was full for “The Seven” on Veterans day.  Stoked so many got down to the box to get after that one.  Another PR attempt tomorrow.  Like I said last week, if you are feeling it, keep bumping up in weight on the squat.  If not, don’t force it.  Take the correct path to a PR, don’t burn out before your heavy rep.  Take a min of 2-2:30 min rest between heavy reps.  Excited to see what you all do tomorrow!

I want to say a personal thank you to every veteran that has served this Country, continues to serve this Country, or gave their lives serving this Country.  I have no comprehension of the devotion and complete selflessness it takes to to put your life on the line to protect the lives of people you have not even met.  All I can say to each and everyone of these men and women who have taken this oath is thank you.  I love this Country and the freedoms that we share living in it, I know these freedoms would not be what they are today without the commitment all of our veterans have made to protect them.  In honor of Veterans everywhere will be completing the “The Seven”.  It is one I have wanted to program for a while and there is no better day for this beast then Veterans day.  Scale Appropriately.  If there is a large number of athletes pair up with someone to share equipment.
