For those of you who follow this blog {thank you, by the way}, you know that only VERY recently I got my first muscle up. And, just last summer, I had reached a long time goal of a 100 pound Snatch.

Since January, I’ve been loosely following the Outlaw Way …the workouts are short, intense with TONS of Olympic Lifting practice, love it. {Rudy, if you read this, more than my mother reads it!!} My PR’s in most of my lifts have gone up regularly and consistently…which has made me more of a follower lately. Long story, yesterday the workout called for “Amanda” 9-7-5 of Snatches & Muscle-Ups. Two of the hardest things to do in CrossFit and both of which have taken my years to get. Since my first muscle up two weeks ago, I had not been able to get another one…with the encouragement of one of my teachers, “Rachel, today, you go down there and get another one.”

I did. I got 5 muscle ups and completed all 21 reps of the Snatch at 90 pounds!…..I was pretty damn happy with that result.

Then, today, I read on Facebook about the Amanda Miller Memorial WOD. In 2009, she competed in the CrossFit Games and passed away less than a year later from Melanoma Cancer. This July, there will be a competition in her honor. A $20 participant fee is all that is required and you can compete at whatever level you are capable of or you can just donate money.
