Workout for Kate

I've attended a local gym called Omega Fitness here in the Dallas area.  It is an amazing gym that follows many of the training protocols that I really enjoy.  They are also a Crossfit gym.  At any rate, I received a great email from them today, honoring a local member of the gym who has stage 3 breast cancer. Her story is truly remarkable, and I wanted to share the workout in honor of her today.  If you feel so inclined, feel free to make a donation on her page after you hear her story. 

Whatever you do today, think of people like Kate and say an extra prayer for them.  To Kate!!!

Pasted from Omega Crossfit & Performance Training Gym Newsletter:

The past few years Omega has participated in the national "Barbells for Boobs" fundraiser for breast cancer awareness. This year Breast Cancer Awareness hits home and instead of linking up with the official B4B program Omega will be holding a fundraiser on Saturday October 26th at 9am for one of our own, Kate Weber.

Kate is a 35 year old mother to a beautiful one year old son. She is one of the most caring sisters and family members anyone could hope for. She followed her dream to get her degree in nutrition and has worked as a personal trainer the majority her whole life in an effort to maintain the upmost health.
On September 12th she was diagnosed with Stage 2 Grade 3 breast cancer. Her mother passed away from this very disease in the 1980's. Kate has done everything in her power to avoid this same fate by living a very healthy and active lifestyle. Unfortunately she is now facing this very real illness.

Kate was also recently engaged to her fiancé, Matt, and hopes to one day both overcome this cancer and get married. It is things like this along with her wonderful baby boy that help keep Kate strong.

Please go and visit Kate's donation page here. We will also be taking any cash or check donations on Saturday the 26th at Omega. The fundraiser will kick off at 9am with a special guest emcee. We will have 2 divisions performing the workout and the winner of each will receive a prize. 

The workout we will be performing Saturday was written by Kate and her fiancé Matt and is as follows:

3 rounds for time of:
200 m Run 
15 Power Snatches 115/75 lbs
15 Overhead Squats 115/75 lbs
15 Thrusters 115/75 lbs
15 Toes-to-bars
15 Burpees

Performed as a partner workout. Both partners run together, then one works while one rests on the remaining movements. 

Again, if you are unable to make it to the workout, please visit Kate's donation page by clicking the following link:
