Month of June in Review:
40th Annual Fishawack Race (4 Mile Run or 1 Mile Run): in Chatham, NJ on Saturday, June 10th
Some #CFA members participated in the 40th Annual Fishawack Run in Chatham on Saturday, June 10th. There was a 4 mile or 1 mile run option, all members represented well despite the hot conditions. It was enjoyable morning and our girl Steph crushed the warm-up prior to the event. Results for the race can be found here: http://www.compuscore.com/cs2017/june/fishwck.htm.

BoneFrog Challenge: in Englishtown, NJ on Saturday June 17th
Some members grinded their way through the BoneFrog Challenge in Englishtown on Saturday, June 17th. The “Challenge” included 8 miles and 30 plus “Navy Seal” obstacles. Special shout out to Coach Steve Madden for organizing the group and Kevin Kilgore for being a Ninja and crushing the course. We learned a lot about team work and the meaning of true hard work despite conditions and the obstacles we had to overcome. We came, we saw, we conquered!
As always, we encourage our members to participate in events outside of the gym doors.

JULY Member of the Month — Rachel Pollard
A regular attendee of the 8:45am and 6:30pm classes, Rachel has been a leading example of what it is to get kicked down and get right back up again. As of recently, she has began to master her kipping pull up and just last week she got not one but TWO ring muscle ups! She also completed and PR’d her Murph time by a significant amount, a year after an incident that could have potentially kept her from thriving inside the gym doors. Congrats, Rachel - we adore having you around and love to watch you develop into the strong woman you are!
Calling all Fishes!!!

Flock Town Farm, Fresh Local Organic Service:
We are still in the works of potentially partnering with Flocktown Farm, a “CSA” service (Community Supported Agriculture). Similar to Kettlebell Kitchen, it is a delivery service that delivers organic seasonal vegetables on a weekly basis. The service needs a minimum of 15 people to order for us to become a drop-off location. Please email Ali (firstname.lastname@example.org) if this is something you and your families would be interested in. A link for more information can be found here: https://www.flocktownfarm.com.
Just a friendly reminder, we have been partnered with KettleBell Kitchen for the last couple months. Feel free to check out their website, www.kettlebellkitchen.com. It’s super convenient when your on the go and are looking for a healthy option. Please note, drop off location is “Annex Sports Performance Center”.
