Do you have a funny CrossFit story? This isn't funny, but my second day of CrossFit was a Saturday and the workout was a chipper and incredibly hard. I thought I was going to die, or quit. There was a buy in and buy out of a run. Thankfully, Angela Vandehey and another sweet soul (not sure who- but possibly Susie Jurgensen?) ran with me on the buy out. That's probably what hooked me to CrossFit.
