Every so often, we will get a nice email randomly from a client, and it’s one of those emails that tugs at our heart strings (Yes, believe it or not, we mean ol’ coaches actually have some, haha!). It’s why we do what we do!

We share this email from Mike Harman, a 5:00am faithful. Here’s his story:

I completed a mini triathlon yesterday. 250 yard swim, 6 mile bike, and 2 mile run.

I sucked at the swim (Need to get back to doing laps) but the bike and run I did great (for me) I could really tell my leg strength was there where it wasn't in the past.

I actually sprinted! I haven't sprinted in a couple of years and out of nowhere I turned on the gas and passed 4 people at the end! One in particular I meant to say in my head but said out loud, "He's Mine!" and I caught him and beat him by a step at the finish line!

It's all I can do to not wear my medal around all day.

My son saw the medal and now my four year old, Jonathan is registered for a 1/2 mile Spartan Race in Pittsburgh on Oct 19th :-)

Thanks for helping me pass fitness on.

Just wanted to say thank you for helping me on my fitness journey and creating CrossFit Cadre as such a great place to be!

Thanks again!

Side note, we got to see that sprint this morning in the last stretch of the workout. It was a whole new side of Mike we hadn’t got to see before, and it was very exciting! Mike has been extremely consistent with his attendance and effort level.

Awesome work, Mike, and thank you so much for sharing your story, and for trusting us to be a part of your fitness journey!
