Month: November 2012

Big congrats to Coach Lindsey for a second-place finish at the Firefighter Combat Challenge World Championship in Myrtle Beach, S.C., on Nov. 16!

Most people don’t see Lindsey training by herself at the tower on McPhillips and dragging around a dummy that keeps falling apart. She’s put in a lot of lonely hours outside the gym, and she’s the only Winnipeg firefighter who regularly competes in the event–a wolfpack of one, so to speak. All that work paid off today with a PR run of 2:40.08 and a spot on the podium for the second straight year.

Lindsey’s had a great year in both CrossFit and Firefighter Combat, and we’re very proud of her!
