On Wednesday, June 5th, we hosted the Nathan Mastin Memorial Celebration in memory of a longtime CrossFit Throne member who passed away in 2015 due to brain cancer.
Little did we know what was in store for us on the day of the memorial WOD. As CrossFit Throne and community members gathered to begin the workout, a haboob, or desert sandstorm, hit the Lubbock area ahead of strong storms.
However, despite the dust, thunder, and rain, we didn’t give up. Nate wouldn’t have let a storm keep him from pushing forward, so neither would we.
Twenty teams of two to four people completed the following:
100 wall-ball shots (buy-in)
200m farmers carry (2x 53/35)
100 double-unders (cash-out)
We were able to raise just over $1,000, which will be donated to Lubbock-based non-profit organization, Tough As Nails, to assist a local family affected by terminal cancer.
