Here is a copy of an email that I bumped into today in my email history that I sent my brother Jake on 1-18-08 at 0800 hours:
"So, Jerrod and I worked out...and it reminded me how much of a wienus I am. And how much I need to get into shape especially because I'm a cop. We got to talking about work out routines and he showed me some different stuff that he thought was good.
He referred me to http://www.crossfit.com/ and showed me the catalouge where he has bought some of his workout equipment from. Here is their website. http://www.ironmind.com/ The website is run by the guy who compiled all of John McCullum's articles into the book "Keys to Progress", which I thought was cool that he is still around. Peruse the sites and let me know what you think.
Also...I've got a bit of extra money set aside for my "toy" fund, and have been thinking of putting it towards my home gym.
Anywho this is just stuff I've been looking at and I'd like some feedback from you.

Then later that same day at 1921 hours:
Ok so I've been looking at the corssfit website a fair amount and I'm really liking what I'm seeing. They've got some killer workouts and I like their philosophies. Spend some time looking into their site. Lots of good stuff there. "
This really was fun to look back on the conception of my CrossFit experience. It motivated me to finally dig out my entire CrossFit history and post it under the April section of this blog. I don't know how many people are reading and following this blog and might find it interesting to look back on my first CrossFit workouts, but HERE it is from the very beginning.
