  • The workout “Amanda” honors 2009 Games competitor, Amanda Miller. Many of the the Legends would have competed with her and/or taken part in the 2010 tribute workout. It was a unique and heavy moment in CrossFit Games history. This video was played just before the first heat of athletes attempted the workout. 
Take a moment to get to know a little more about the woman behind the workout. 
The following post on gratitude is from her blog on 2/4/2010. The link is still live if you would like to check it out (in bio). So I started thinking again last night, I have a rare and deadly type of aggressive Melanoma. I started doing some research awhile back on people that have had an aggressive type of Melanoma and I haven't found any that have survived yet because it consumes your being so quick that you almost don't have time to react. 
My survival rate is 4 months from diagnosis. Do you know what that means? I'm supposed to be saying my good-byes this month. The way it was looking the statistics were right too. My liver started failing fast last month and I know my doctors didn't want to say anything to me but I could tell by their reactions yesterday when I went down to start my next cycle of treatment. I thank God everyday for another beautiful day here and the opportunity to eventually help others when I get better. Life is so short and no one even realizes it. 
I mean you could walk outside today and have your life taken in an instant and everyone that knew you would say "your life got cut short". I really wish people would realize how important things are in their everyday life and not take it for granted. When you come home in a bad mood and your significant other, your kids, or even your pets try to make you feel better and you act like a stubborn selfish person and shun them away when really you should be relieved and grateful you have people like that in your life. Or how about when you got to go home for the "huge" family dinner at Thanksgiving or Christmas and your excited but at the same time you just want it to be over with? Again, thank God you have family and he's given you the blessing to have... full post through the link in bio. #gratitude

  • After some clarification (Plus a court order, some paperwork and a few hours of community service), it was made clear that I am, in fact, NOT the new CEO of @fitaid - but I AM still part of the team and I’m stoked that they released a sugar free beverage to their lineup today! I’ll be looking to giveaway a case or two later this week so stay tuned. Edit by @nateedwardson graphics: @briancantore

  • Fact: I’m a slacker when it comes to self maintenance. When work and travel get heavy I’ll hit a workout with little or no warmup and cool down. Definitely not bragging, just saying. After 2 weeks on the road, my was waaaay out of whack. Today, Brant Pedersen @positivemotion put me back together, and I’m couldn’t be more thankful. I still need to do some homework, but this got me back to normal. Added bonus: he’s one of my closest friends so we got to catch up.

  • Yet another spine tingling moment from the Reykjavik CrossFit Championship .... watching Kat and Annie throw down on the tail end of this video in the stadium was one of my all time favorite memories! #repost DÓTTIR is the Icelandic word for DAUGHTER. Most Icelandic girls have this word in their last name with the name of their father, mother or both in front of it. This naming tradititon applies to Icelandic boys as well. Only in their case it is SON.
_
Through the years, the word DÓTTIR has taken on a bigger meaning and we are using this platform and our sport to embrace that. Every woman is a DÓTTIR and every man is a SON of a DÓTTIR.
_
We proudly announce the DÓTTIR WOD that we hope will become a benchmark workout in every Crossfit box around the world from now on. This WOD was created in collaboration with three incredible, strong, driven and independent women, and Iceland´s best known Crossfit DÓTTIRS's @AnnieThorisdottir, @KatrinTanja and @SaraSigmunds 👸🏼👸🏼👸🏼

*12 BAR MU
* 21 DL 100/70 KG
* 9 BAR MU
* 15 HANG CLEAN 100/70 KG
* 6 BAR MU
* 9 STOH 100/70 KG

TIME CAP 7 MINUTES

The DÓTTIR WOD is the INDIVIDUALS WOD #6 at the @ReykjavikCrossfitChampionship
