The cool thing about Emily is that she had never done CrossFit. She jumped headfirst into our community with the commitment to learn everything there is to learn about the Invictus family,

What can I say – another great night at the track.  I had a sense that most people did not look forward to running 1 mile repeats, yet most people still showed up and laid it out on the line.   Super proud of everyone that came and ran hard – the workout was 1 mile repeats with 3 minutes of rest – the goal was to keep the intervals within 5-10s, let’s see if people were able to do it….
