Boston and Deadlifts baby!
What am I?
Thanks to Jane and Andy for hosting us on Cape Cod yesterday and last night. So odd to be there without the girls.
I spent the day with the family in Boston. We hit the New England Aquarium, got to see Goose fish, sharks and Myrtle the Turtle :-) Myrtle the 550# Turtle
Then it was off to Legal Seafoods for lunch followed by a stroll around the markets and up to Boston Common. A cappucino mustache Finally Dan, Kat and Esme' headed off to Logan on a water taxi and I hit the Pike for the drive home in time for the wod. Check MaD CrossFit for the complete workout.
