Pictured above is Alex Rojas shortly after he demolished the fastest time in the gym for the 1 mile time trial Run. He is the first athlete from CrossFit CrownTown to run a mile in under 5 minutes. Before his 4:55 mile the fastest time belonged to Nate Chabolla at 5:16. After the run, Alex and I exchanged some text messages. It made his accomplishment tonight that much cooler (as if a sub 5 minute mile isn’t cool enough). Here is part of our conversation:
Very proud of Alex for his achievement and all his progress with CrossFit in less than 6 months. He’s part of the “Early Jerks Get Snatch” at 5:15am with his brother and some long time friends/co-workers. Good stuff, Alex! ~ WW
