131123 ~ Love the Snatch...Fighting Cervical Cancer

If you competed or spectated at the CompWod 2 Bars 1 Snatch competition last weekend, you may have walked by Jen Young selling her "Love the Snatch" tshirts.  Jennifer has been diagnosed with a rare form of Cervical Cancer....she is a fellow CrossFitter training out of CrossFit Altitude in Burlington. 

It has become a tradition at Canuck to run Hero wods on Saturdays as a break from our regularly scheduled programming.  Cancer and it's many faces has touched all of us.  This WOD today has been named after Jennifer.....a hero who continues to battle each and every day!

"CrossFit, and especially competing in CrossFit, has trained me to accept what I can’t control. I don’t pick the daily WOD, I don’t influence who else shows up to compete, and I certainly can’t do much about their performance and eventual score. Fretting about what others are doing (or what has happened to other people with cancer) won’t help me to do better. Whining about a workout won’t change it, and no amount of moping is going to make my cancer disappear.” - Jen Young

Conditioning:

The rep scheme is because Jen is a self proclaimed "math nerd" and PI is her favorite number- "3.14" . The variety of movements is to represent the hard work and effort that Jen puts into all of her skills and her attention to form on everything she does.  There is a total of 3 rounds, representing the 3 of Pi, and the 141 double unders represents the .141 (71 +70)/
