Three Things Thursday

I'm looking to try out CrossFit and I thought I'd visit some of my local boxes to see if it made sense to join one or if I could do it on my own. The first place I contacted was CrossFit Amplify, first because they are the closest box to my house and second because I'm a sucker for the Anarchy symbol. Their intro sessions are evenings only, so that doesn't work for me at this time, but I'm still hoping to visit just to check it out. More on Amplify and other boxes in coming weeks.

"During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo's, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives." I'm not raising funds this year, but am growing a moustache in support - have never had a moustache alone, so kind of scared to see what results! :)

International Tempranillo Day

In 2011, Tempranillo Advocates Producers and Amigos Society (TAPAS) organized the first annual International Tempranillo Day: A celebration of the Tempranillo grape with all its regional synonyms.

Today, November 8th, is the 2012 date.  Open a bottle of Tempranillo, enjoy the fun, and share your experiences online with the hashtag #TempranilloDay!

    i hope you can find a "box" that works with your schedule! still not sure why they call them boxes. and once you get the hang of all the moves you can just buy some equipment and set up your own gym in your garage :)
