This Sunday, April 19th, Veronica is walking in the Walk MS 2015 NYC, as she does every year, to raise awareness and funds for research regarding Multiple Sclerosis.  If you’d like to donate please CLICK HERE.  If you’d like to walk with Veronica contact us or contact Veronica directly.

Walk MS



1)  My jump rope, which looks exactly like the below jump rope, is missing.  There is a jump rope which looks like mine in the gym.  Not sure who owns the one currently in the gym, but I believe the owner may have mine thinking it’s his/hers.  Please check.  My jump rope is near and dear to me and I have grown emotionally attached to it since it was given to me by Freya, The Lady Of The Lake, and its magic powers will only work for me and those I allow to use it.

OK…I lied about the Lady Of The Lake, but I do need my magic jump rope returned. Right. Now.



2)  The bench in the gym is not to be used as your personal locker to leave your equipment over night and beyond.  The storage space is for use while your session is going on.  When your session is over please remove your items.

    George, I might be the thieving bastard your looking for, I recently changed my cable to red I’ll bring in the evidence at 4

    Good Morning George! Great interview with Dr. Kerker. I especially liked seeing Lisa in the end. She looked so pretty. Great job qualifying for the Masters, you have a lot to be proud of! On a side note I need to make a public apology to my husband. My kids found my crossfit notebook in the glove compartment. Ok everyone have a great day.

    That was a really good video…more people should see it, not just crossfitters! Donate to Veronica, she does this run every year among other fundraisers for MS. I love the Socrates quote. It’s so true and Lisa Congratulations again on making the Master’s Qualifier. We are always inspired by what you can do!! Danielle, what the heck in written in your crossfit notebook that your kids can’t see lol??

    Yoda–Nice you are!

    John–I hope it’s you. I don’t mind my stuff being stolen by honest thieves.

    Danielle–Good afternoon! Yes, Lisa did look great in that shot, but I wish they would have showed her doing her one arm workout. She was deadlifting 135 lbs. with one arm that day. And the shot of Lauren was good as well, but you really couldn’t tell how pregnant she was. Dr. Kerker was great! I’m glad you recovered your notebook!

    Beth–Thank you! Danielle thought her CrossFit notebook was inadvertently thrown out, but fortunately it was not.

    Beth, I’m laughing so hard right now. Let me explain. My husband was cleaning out my car, and my crossfit notebook was inside. All of the sudden it went missing. I asked my husband if he threw it out, he said he couldn’t remember, so I figured he did and falsely accused him. Yesterday, Shayna and Gracie were looking for something in the glove compartment and found it. Sorry, nothing juicy inside.
