Grass Fed Meat & Organic Veggie CSA Coming to SFCF

We are delighted to announce that Tara Firma Farms is going to be doing a meat and vegetable CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) drop at SFCF once a month starting on April 12th.   Tara Firma Farm is located in Petaluma and specializes in pasture raised chicken, grass fed beef, pasture raised pork, pasture raised chicken eggs, and seasonal organic produce.   Their boxes are a mix of chicken, beef, and pork, allowing you to enjoy many cuts not experienced before (recipes included) and various seasonal vegetables and fruits.   Eggs and other items can also be added to your box.   They also offer free farm tours every weekend to CSA members so, if you are interested in checking out where your food comes from, you can have a look.   This is a great way to support local farms and get really high-quality food directly to you.

The Details

  • Tara Firma will drop your meat/eggs/veggies at SFCF on the second Thursday of every month at 3:00 p.m. so you can come and pick it up anytime after that.    The meat is packed in a cooler with ice so can easily be picked up at night when you come to class.
  • You can choose a Meat Share, a Veggie Share, or do a mix of meat and veggies.
  • There is a minimum order of $100 but you may select a mix of meat, veggies, and eggs to meet that minimum.
  • In addition to your box, you can shop on the farm’s web store to add additional items to your box if, for example, you know you are having a dinner party and want a  particular cut of meat or specific veggies.   They have eggs, gluten-free breads, dairy products, and more.
  • You can change your order the week before and put a vacation hold on if you are out of town.

WOD 12.5 at SFCF – A Great End To The 2012 Open

After five long weeks of hard work, determination, and dedication, over 60 San Francisco Crossfit athletes completed the 2012 Games Open this year.   We had a huge crowd every Friday night including a ton of supporters and spectators and it was awe-inspiring to see athletes complete their heat only to get right up and support their fellow SFCFers.   Most importantly, we met our main goal of qualifying a team for the Regionals in May!   From a results standpoint, Beth Helton and Lisa Warren did exceptionally well, finishing 59th and 56th respectively – well enough to qualify as individuals – awesome.   The Regionals will be held at the same location as last year in San Jose so Save The Dates (May 18-20) to come out and support our team!  We want to see a Sea of Pink at the Regionals!  Thanks again to our unofficial team photographer Tory Kornblum for these awesome pictures every week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fabric Shortage In Marin County

SFCF Coach Robert Tuller celebrated his 48th birthday last Saturday and spent part of his day with his rag-tag group of runners in the mud on Mount Tam.   In honor of his birthday and in celebration of his unique fashion sense, his regulars including Monica Madsen, Karrie Hutchins, Damon Waldron, and Ryan Romines, who drove over from SFCF in pants, surprised Coach Tuller by stripping down to their own short-shorts.   Check out some of the photos from their day including the awesome t-shirt they made for Tuller which says “Who Wears Short Shorts” on the front and “Coach Tuller wears short shorts” on the back.  I’m not sure that Ryan and Damon’s thighs have ever seen the sun before this day but they all look awesome and I know Coach Tuller was simply delighted.  Happy Birthday Tuller!

 

 

 

 

Karrie Hutchins Completes A 50K!

Huge congrats to SFCFer Karrie Hutchins for finishing the Way Too Cool 50K on Saturday in a blazing time of 5 hours and 52 minutes!   What is even more awesome is that she did Games WOD 12.3 earlier in the week and reports being sore from that but not from the 50K.   Awesome.  Way to go Karrie!!!

WOD 12.3 at SFCF…The Epic MetCon

It was another epic Friday evening at SFCF with metcon madness!  Beth Helton completely slayed this workout with 373 reps and Damian Marano was close behind with 349 reps.   It was another night of inspiration with a huge group of spectators and competitors – including George’s twins below.  Thanks again to our resident Games photographer Tory for taking these pics of a great night!  Go Team SFCF!

Snatch Mania! WOD 12.2 at SFCF

It was a snatching extravaganza at SFCF on Friday night!  A huge group of athletes and spectators showed up again for WOD 12.2 and it was PR-central!  Many of our athletes got their PR that night and even more got their PR over and over again.   Gretchen Weber, for example, hit her PR and then did it 27 more times.   It was another awesome an inspirational evening.  Special thanks to our resident Games photographer Tory Kornblum for these awesome photos (and, who killed 71 reps with 105 on the bar!)  Go Team SFCF!
