Happy Mothers's Day!

The Front squat/box jump wod was hoppin last week...  Baha, baha...

Crossfit Eaton wants to wish a special Happy Mother's day to all of our CF Eaton moms!  You ladies are an inspiration and you have to know that you're setting an awesome example not only for your own kids, but for the rest of us "kids" as well.  Thank you for all that you do!  Here's a sad, but inspiring story from a CF mom in South Carolina (Ping H):

I was married to a wonderful man who gave me everything a woman could want. His name was Chris Hollifield. On July 2, 2010, he was killed in an underwater explosion while working on an oil platform off the coast of Louisiana. I was 6 months pregnant with our very first child. Chris was 33 years old. 

People who know me would describe me as independent and strong willed. I care alot about those I love. Right now, I am living day to day trying to take care of myself and our unborn child, due Oct. 3rd. His name will be Tanner Christopher Hollifield. 

There are many things I learned after losing Chris so unexpectedly. Live your life to the fullest. Live everyday like it's going to be your last. Say "I love you" like they will never hear them from your lips again. Cherish life because you just never know when it's your time to go. And most of all, trust in God that He does things for a reason, even if that reason doesn't make up for the pain. I refuse to feel sorry for myself. I just know that there's an angel watching over me, and my beloved's legacy lives on through our son.

-We'll take the advice, Ping.  Keep fight'n, lady...
