When you read about CrossFit, there's usually an element of community somewhere in the article. For the morning classes, it used to be Maria, Ryan, my sister and myself. Maria moved to Mexico in October last year, but even today, her name still came up. Coach Rel said that she was still expecting Maria to be scurrying down the parking lot exactly at 6:30 AM and we could start class. I still text with her at least weekly just to see how she's doing. I hope I can count on her in 2017 to tell me that whatever cake or baked goodie I'm lusting after is probably dry and awful, and I shouldn't have any. Once an accountability partner, always an accountability partner I guess.
