Viviana first joined us in January of this year after Becky finally twisted her arm to get her to try out CrossFit. At first, she was a regular and made crazy gains, impressing everyone with her guns and earning the nickname “Muscles”. Sadly, Viv felt she was getting “too buff” and only occasionally graces us with her presence now. (Maybe she should read Ruth’s post on “getting bulky”, or either of Sean’s on the beauty of strength and women lifting heavy.) While she claims to have never done any weightlifting prior to coming to Intrepid, she took to it like a fish to water and has set some quite amazing PRs! When she’s not in the gym disrupting class, Viv can be found crusading for more green parks in the concrete jungle, finding nice scotches, playing with Becky and engaging in environmental justice. You should all be able to wish Viv a happy birthday in person tonight since she said she didn’t have any better plans. :) Happy birthday Viv!!

Happy Birthday Muscles!!! I’m so happy Becky forced you to join the CFI family, just having you there increases our coolness factor! You better come tonight because we are planning a birthday dinner after 7pm class. I promise not to sabotage your WOD.

P.S. everybody else, birthday dinner for Viv tonight after 7pm class.
