Lauren, Greg, Mini, and Connie
Connie and I had the great privilege of getting to spend a little bit of time with Lauren and Greg Glassman during our holiday vacation. For those of you who may not know, Greg and Lauren are the founders of CrossFit.
Greg is a fascinating guy and I always learn something new from him every time we talk. He continues to be a great influence on me personally and professionally.
Lauren and Greg also think highly of CFO and had nothing but good things to say about the recent CFO videos that have appeared on the CF national site and the CF games site. They were pleased to hear stories about the performances of our athletes, young and old, novice and experienced, elite and otherwise. Mostly, though, they were happy to hear about the type of community we’ve built.
And since the New Year is upon us, I thought it only fitting to offer up the following: For me, 2008 was about being extremely appreciative of the community we’ve built. This manifested itself in a more public way at the CF Games, but it’s apparent on a day-to-day basis at our gym as well.
So what was the best thing about your 2008 CFO experience? And what are you looking forward to in 2009?
