    Where are people staying for Aromas weekend? Gilroy garden hilton sold out. There are other hotels in Gilroy, salinas or marina with shuttle to games. Just wondering.

    Tom,
    Coach G just emailed me – he wanted me to tell you that your assignment at the games has been changed from “Official Photographer” to “Official Urine Sample Collector”. Make sure to wear your raingear!

    I just wanted to say….

    Joseph: I’m so proud of you for RX-ing that workout! You never gave up, and Travis and I are happy to run an EXTRA 400m with you if it means you making it through that last push! Great job & thanks for coming to CFO and bearing thru that workout with me!! :) If I can stop hurting my back, I’ll be right up there RX-ing it with you!!!

    Ann, what the heck are you doing up at 2:53 AM? You crazy, girl? Don’t you know that your gains from all that hard work are made during the recovery period? Get to sleep, woman!

  7. sierra June 20, 2009 at 1:45 pm

    Yeah, Anne! But Connie, I can’t think of a single reason for you to be up right now.

    “CrossFit will be conducting on-site steroid testing on all athletes competing at the 2009 CrossFit Games.”

    I call be BS. Even if they limited the “on-site testing” to the 150 individual competitors, the cost to test would exceed $12,000 (According to The National Federation of High School Associations web site, banned substance testing cost between $80-$120 / person).

    And they are actually going to collect, store, and test urine samples in the dusty confines of an Aromas Ranch? I find it doubtful that there are going to be numerous men and women in white lab coats, standing shoulder to shoulder behind very expensive Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry Machines awaiting the urine samples of OPT and Josh Everett.

    And don’t even get me started on the overly broad term “Steroids.” What does that even mean?

    to all CFO PIXAR employees –

    a beautiful act of compassion and kindness…..

  11. Ann June 20, 2009 at 5:18 pm

    Connie – Haha…You busted me! It was a bit of a late night for me. Is there open gym later today so I can do that workout?? Looks like I missed the 10a class I was planning on making… *sigh* I know,..I’m in big trouble. But the trouble was totally worth it!!!

  12. Allen June 20, 2009 at 8:25 pm

    Brandon,

    I think what they are actually going to do is one of two things:

    1) Collect samples from everyone, and only test those who place top 3, 5, 10 or whatever.

    2) Only collect and test samples from the top 5 or 10 in each category…that would be a lot more cost effective.

    All it would take is a couple people doing the collections and labeling, and you could get a sample from every competitor over 3 days at a pretty low cost. ($5-10 each max, maybe less). It is the testing that is expensive, not the collecting, and why would they bother testing anyone who doesn’t place in the top 10 anyway?

    Obviously there are other issues – the 3 weeks notice, lack of random testing throughout the year, and what exactly are they testing for, etc etc…Sounds like they aren’t so much trying to catch anyone as put on a good show. Anyway, it is probably better than nothing, at least as a first step.

    Allen, I am looking forward to my increased responsibilities as a collector of human effluent. Amy, I am staying at the Motel 6. It’s where the champions hang out. I had the best neighbors on my first night of the Qualifiers. The dude and his wife did not speak so much as yell every one of their sentences to one another. Their conversations were weighty, to say the least. I’ve rarely heard such incisive commentary regarding Kierkegaard and Nietzsche. I was frankly amazed at the depth and breadth of their analysis of existential thought as it pertains to consumption of pork rinds, cookies, and Little Debbie’s snack cakes. They did this late into the night and awoke early in the morning to repeat. It was so cool. The room itself had a bit of Blade Runner feel to it, but otherwise was just fine and cost about half of what the Hilton Garden Inn did.

    Nicole, your recipe does not pack the necessary glycemic wallop. I think it is missing a generous helping of pasta or mash tapatoes. Yes, I said tapatoes. Other than that omission, it looks good.

    Mike, way to suck it up yesterday and stay strong. Lesser men might have decided to bail on going to the movie, but not you, good sir. Must have been that half gallon of milk I saw you toting out of the gym.
