Got CrossFit?Yep…I’m a sellout. I put a CrossFit license plate on my car and became part of an ingenious marketing scheme to spread the word about CrossFit, and I couldn’t be more proud of it. I wear a CrossFit shirt everyday, I do CrossFit workouts in a globo-gym, and regularly tell people how great CrossFit is when they come up to find out what in the hell I’m doing (though it’s hard to answer since I usually can’t breathe).

On to today’s WOD, which is a statement in masochism if I ever saw one. Named after Kelly Moore, this WOD originated from Kelly’s tendency to chase people, jump on them 30 times, throw any luggage they may be carrying high against a wall, and then repeat the process with 4 of that person’s closest friends. (If that isn’t an example of a practical application of exercise, I don’t know what is.) Kelly, if you’re reading this (which you probably are since I told you to), let me just say that I’m happy there aren’t any kettlebells nearby. 🙂

Today’s WOD:

Kelly
5 rounds (!) for time of:

400m run
30 box jumps (24″ box)
30 wallball shots (20 lb. ball)

Post time and any scaling/substitutions to comments.

    Yep, That’s me alright! Be afraid, be very afraid…..:)

    Thank you for the stirring tribute. I feel deeply honored!

    Dear Kelly,

    I just finished your named workout (41:05), and I’ve decided that I don’t want to be your friend anymore.

    Love,

    Tai

    Seriously though…what have you got against legs? I won’t be able to use mine for a month!

  • Kelly Moore

    I love you despite trying to kill you Tai! Coach was mean enough to create a WOD just for me and I love to share the suffering.

    It’s just my way 🙂

    If you think I’ve got something against legs, check out what Ryan Atkins did to us on http://www.crossfitmilwaukee.com/. I was one of the many to suffer that row/deadlift/hill sprint/burpee/stairs workout. That workout left all of us dying and without a working pair of legs….most of us were lucky to be able to stand for the picture!
