Dear Elizabeth:

Not many people know you very well.  They do not know that when your exercises first came together that they were in a 15-12-9 rep scheme (07-08-03).  It was about a month later (09-12-03) that you finally came along in the way that we know you.  Even though you are one of the original girls, there is still much argument with regards to how you should be done.  Recently you were seen at the CrossFit Games hanging out with Power Cleans instead of Squat Cleans.  There have even been rumors that you can be scaled all the way to a Hang Power Clean.  Your Ring Dips have proven to also be controversial when people think they have locked out their arms at the top of a Ring Dip when they have merely pushed themselves up a bit.  What no one can argue is that you are a balanced workout and a great pull/push combination.  An eye-opening experience to beginners and a sprint to veterans.  A true classic workout in the world of CrossFit.

And a total bitch at the same time,
