Otis, In Memoriam

Today’s Workout

3 Rounds for time:
400m run
Front squats, max reps (BW / 3/4 BW)As many of you already know, a fixture of CFLA, an unofficial “mascot,” and my best buddy, Otis, passed away last week after 15 1/2 amazing years of life. Many of you came to know Otis, lying at the top of the stairs to greet you as you climbed up to sign in for class. Many of you shared his sweetness, his gentleness, and his warmth. He was calm and strong. Those of you with kids in CrossFit Kids knew Otis as a dog that your children weren’t afraid of and who welcomed their sometimes experimental petting. Many people who met Otis became dog lovers for the first time. That was who he was. Thank you to everyone who took time to share a moment with him whenever you came by. Those were always his favorite moments. He will be missed by me and by CFLA. And he will always be here.
