At this moment I'm not ashamed to say I love you, Mike.

That's the bourbon talking and I don't trust it- you're just excited to get on my bench.

My reasons don't make it any less real. Don't make it weird.

I subbed bench (185) for the pull ups and it was probably harder then doing the pull ups.

On that note, will people please start leaving XXL (American XXL, not Yann XXL) tshirts and jackets and L shorts and pants please? I got a sweet hat yesterday, but nothing else fits me. Thank you.

It is only a little disturbing that you visit "the clothesmakethegirl.com".

I just want to say I have LOVED Mike and look forward to it again.
January 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRed
Berube, the reason you can't find any XXL clothing is that I don't ever leave any at the gym. You remember t-shirts when you have to pay an extra $2 bucks over everyone else's prices. I think you and I are probably the only people that know that.

On a side note, Yann once asked me to cut the tags out of my shirts so he could sew them into his.
January 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRed
Not the only two.
January 26, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterjust Bob
Try an extra $3... XXXL here

Mike,
Norcal Crossfit did this WOD yesterday:

RxD
5 Minutes of Double Unders
5 Minutes of 95/65lb Clean and Push Jerk
3 Minutes of Double Unders
3 Minutes 95/65lb Clean and Push Jerk
1 Minute of Double Unders
1 Minute 95/65lb Clean and Push Jerk
Count total reps of each.

That's a spicy 18 minutes.

Do the Scotch Eggs taste gross, or do they just look gross? Not Haggas gross? Can't be that gross.

Sniped Diva. Nice.

Dear Berube, I'm sure you looked adorable leaving the box this morning underneath a pink, blue, yellow, and purple striped umbrella. I hope your hair and make-up were saved with the aid of my little parasol. And I know we've been warned about leaving things at the gym, but I'd really love to see that guy again. He was a present from my mama.
January 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterApril
Damn, Berube. I know you are parked in the Yann lot right by the back door, why do you need to steal a girl's umbrella?
January 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPoole
I blame Katrina. April, it's in my car and I forgot to put it back this morning. I didn't know it was yours, but thanks for unknowingly letting me use it.
January 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRyan B
Anytime, Ryan :)
