CrossFit Weekend

 
From a very young age, our mom has encouraged us in the area of physical fitness. An athlete herself, daily exercise became a regular part of our morning school routine. From calisthenics to vigorous walking/jogging, she helped build healthy, active habits into our lives.
 
Andrew has especially enjoyed working out and this year was a qualifier for the Central Region CrossFit games. The last weekend of May found several of us gathered in Minneapolis to cheer him through several excruciating workouts. In between the competitions, we had great times of conversation & enjoying time with Dan, Bethany, and their children. Here are a few pictures Bethany captured:

Congrats! How fun that you were able to cheer for him! We also enjoy running as a family at the beach, and have run a few 5Ks.

Hello Wissmann Family. I am so prigileged to know you through your profile on the blogger. I am also glad to stop by your blog post and get a glimpse of your family. I have come across your proile earlier and may have commented on your blog post but since I share after a comment about the program our church has for the young and the adults from the west it may not have been approved but still I am trying once again. I am blessed to know such a Godly family with different talents to serve the Lord. I AM FROM mUMBAI, INDIA a city with great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live. We reach out to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the broken hearted. We also encourage young and the adults from the West to come to Mumbai to wori with us during their vacation time. We would love to have some of you to come to Mumbai to work with us in the slums of Mumbai amongst poorest of poor with the love of Christ and also serve the Body of Christ with your musical talents and sharing of the Word. I am sure it would be a rewarding time as well as life changing experience for you. My email id is: dhwankhede(at)gmail(dot)com and my name is Diwakar Wankhede. Looking forward to hear from you very soon. God's richest blessings on your family.
