Please join us for the 2nd annual Vagabond Mother’s Day benefit workout for the fight against breast cancer! We’ve all been touched by this disease which does not discriminate.

This special workout will take place on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 14th at 9:00 AM. Friends and family are welcome to join in on the fun: wear pink (if you can), bring a $20 donation at the door, and let us know who you’re working out in memory or support of.

This is very important material over these last 5 weeks because this is where you develop that left ventricle of the heart, aka, what makes us go longer, harder, and sustain more, aka Be Better at the Sport of CrossFit. Sometimes if you want to get better, you have to embrace things you do not want to do. Get it!
