The Sword

Three rounds for time of:

Run 800 meters

Rest 2 minutes


The Paradiso CrossFit logo represents the ability to perform well across a broad range of modalities.  If you have ever heard me talk about my passions, you can probably understand the surfboard, the barbell and the snowboard, but the sword always gets a question.

  Yes, I have been called a peace loving hippie before, and no, I have never really been in a fight (although I was sucker punched once, picture here), because I believe in reasoning and rational discussion.  But what happens if you run into someone that doesn’t listen to reason or doesn’t speak your language?  CrossFit preaches to be prepared for the unknown and the unknowable which certainly includes the ability to defend yourself.

The sword represents the knowledge of self defense and combat.

  It is a reminder to me that I have more to learn about myself and interacting with others.  Kelly Starrett articulates this perfectly in the following clip.
