Hey, Vibram Five Finger wearers: Barefoot Running Can Cause Injuries, Too – NYTimes.com – I personally like shoes better, especially for CrossFit. Shoes have a much sturdier, solid feel, IMO. When I started CF, I would occasionally wear a pair of Vibrams (I still have them), but after movements like double unders, box jumps and the Olympic lifts, the balls of my feet would hurt, so I made the switch. I’m still a fan of the minimalist shoes, though.

REMINDER: We are doing the CrossFit Games Open 13.1 workout Saturday at 10 AM. Come and cheer and work your ass off!
ALSO: CrossFit Forte is going green. We are down to our last paper cups. After they are gone, we will no longer stock them. We think it’s silly to provide paper cups when you can easily purchase or re-use a water bottle.
ALSO ALSO: Everyone is invited to the Paleo Potluck on Saturday at our place. 123 Lea Ave, Nashville. Pretty much right Downtown. It’s encouraged to bring some paleo friendly food, a significant other, and some clothing you don’t wear in the gym. Let’s feast.
