Yeah, Valentine’s isn’t a real holiday. It’s pretty lame. But ever since I became a teacher, I’ve started embracing it. I have fond memories of eating a large stash of Hershey’s kisses during a teacher inservice back in the day. I’m also a huge fan of pink, and I enjoy decorating my studio are for my students! These days, I always work late on Valentine’s Day, and then we go out for Chinese. However, this year, (I think) we’re actually going to be at CrossFit for the last Friday of our competition series!
In honor of that, I submit to you Valentines for CrossFitters…. or, more likely, for you to go out and buy for yourself!! Many are $25 and under!

Hers: Socks are a MUST for CrossFit. I am especially aware of this since I rope burned almost entirely through one last night!!! They were cheap Target socks — this type usually holds up better. I was glad I didn’t ruin a pair of pants, and socks + shorts is typically the right combo in Colorado.
