Our deepest condolences, thought and prayers are with the families of Newtown, Connecticut today. We chase our fitness, our health and our active lifestyle in CrossFit so we can be better athletes. As athletes, however,  we are first and foremost, human beings. Hug your family a little tighter today and keep the people of Newtown in your thoughts. May we never see another tragedy  like it anywhere in the world.
