  1. Welcome to Team CF. My cousin’s granddaughter has CF so I appreciate folks like you who raise money and awareness. I will ride this year for the 3rd time for the local CF fund raising ride. If you are in CO in mid September for that ride I would appreciate a push up the hill outside Ward CO. I also read all your articles in Bicycling Mag etc and find them very helpful. Keep up the good work.

  2. I don’t know if I’ll be able to make the cross country trip in September, but if I do, I’d be happy to give a push. Thanks so much for your kind words. I’m deeply honored to be part of this team.

  3. When I picked up my Feb 2012 issue of Runner’s World, I found your article about Crossfit very upsetting.

    First of all, Crossfit did NOT invent those exercise moves. They have all been around for years before Crossfit ever existed.

    Secondly, Crossfit is anything BUT safe. I have runner friends that were not able to compete in races they’d looked forward to all season because they were injured doing some extreme Crossfit WOD routine. They have since left Crossfit and either work with their personal trainers or do their own workouts.

    Please read this article from the NY Times before you glorify Crossfit or the Glassman guy that started it in any more articles

    Getting Fit, Even If It Kills You

    From the article:

    Mr. Glassman, CrossFit’s founder, does not discount his regimen’s risks, even to those who are in shape and take the time to warm up their bodies before a session.

    “It can kill you,” he said. “I’ve always been completely honest about that.”

    But CrossFitters revel in the challenge. A common axiom among practitioners is “I met Pukey,” meaning they worked out so hard they vomited. Some even own T-shirts emblazoned with a clown, Pukey. CrossFit’s other mascot is Uncle Rhabdo, another clown, whose kidneys have spilled onto the floor presumably due to rhabdomyolysis.
