The “Wod for Savannah” event left us with a day I know many of us will never forget. We came together as a family with the children of Precision to honor the way to early passing of one our member’s nieces. It has only been 3 months since this phenomenal family lost their daughter to Toddler SID’s. It was heart wrenching to listen to Savannah’s father talk about his late daughter and her beautiful personality. I could feel his pain as he was speaking and could not stop looking at all the parents in the gym with their little ones, what a powerful moment. One of the things he said touched me in a way only a Father could feel. I am sure it touched all the parents out there as well. As he was speaking about the charity he founded for Savannah called “Stolen Moments,” he said it was because he would no longer have special moments with his daughter, but in healing he wanted to make sure he could raise money to give other parents out there those moments with their child. You see he had lost a lifetime with his daughter but all of us standing in the room still had a lifetime to give to their child. He made a great point to me later when he said he can’t believe how many parents are on their phones when he goes to the park with his son. Their kid is literally standing a few feet away wanting to play with them and they just get ignored. This really hit me as I know I have been guilty of this. He told me how he quit a job with a long commute so he could spend more time with his family. This hit me as well. I often spend hours away from my children, sometimes days because of my career path. I miss them dearly, but what is funny is that they are right there. Right in front of me all the time and all I have to do is look, put down what I am doing and pay attention. I need to turn off my cell phone and when I am home shut it down to make it more about the kids. Even as I write this I have put my laptop down several times to Riley asking for my attention normally to climb on my chest for a hug. Once the event started I witnessed the child / adult pairs work their hearts out.

Savannah’s wod ended being much harder then it looked on paper with the adults sometimes trying desperately hard to keep up with the kids. It was amazing how well versed the children of Precision were with the movements. It just shows how much they take everything in and what sponges they are. They pay close attention to all our actions and were little crossfitters for a day, honored to share the competition floor with their Mommy or Daddy. I got to see it first hand as I competed alongside my soon to be 3 year old. What an experience. I could not believe how serious he was and as he took a knee with me for a pep talk I knew that he truly knew what was going on. A tear came to my eye as I gave my son my first ever words of encouragement. Savannah had given me a moment. We had a blast and I have never been so proud of every rep that little body did. I always tell those who ask. One of the main reasons why I opened Precision with Greg 2 years ago was because I knew my children would be raised in a positive environment with excellent role models. Today was an awesome example of that. I am honored and proud to be the co-owner of Precision CrossFit especially on days like today. Congratulations to Marley Pena and the Dimond girls for their excellent performances today. “Do it for something bigger than yourself;” Katie Crowe likes to say this and today we sure as heck did. Stand proud P.C. because today “Together We are One.”
