Personal Records

At Crossfit Durham, there’s a special tradition. See, there’s this bell. It’s the size of a small car and whenever you set a new personal record you’re encouraged to ring the bell. It’s loud and low and it rings through out the entire box. Ever since I started Crossift I have wanted to ring that bell. Granted at the time, on day one, I had absolutely no idea what the bell was for, I just wanted to ring it because secretly I’m 8 years old and … well, it’s a bell!


It wasn’t until I read a blog post from a fellow CFD member and Crossfitter that I decided to take a position in our friendly debate. I am a Crossfitter. My boyfriend, best friend and brother, and our other friends we’ve coaxed into joining the box can take their time deciding that they are, too.
