Monica, you are one amazing, strong mama.

Thank you to all of our athletes, friends, and family who came out to join us for our Hero WOD weekend to honor those soldiers fighting for our freedom. 
The CrossFit community is special in so many ways.  It is a welcoming, hardworking family of individuals who come together to support each other as we push ourselves to be our best selves, both in and out of the gym.  We celebrate successes,  we work through struggles, and we let each other know that we are not alone in whatever life throws at us.  We are honored to be part of your best days and your worst days, but always a part of you getting stronger for the next day.  

Baby Eva

“Eva Gennarina Lubbert was born on May 22, 2013 at 6:34pm. She weighed 7 lbs, 5oz and was 21.25 inches long.

Eva was not well when she arrived into this world and passed away on May 27, 2013. Although the time she spent with us was too short, she touched so many of us in so many ways. I am honored to be her mother and to have grown, nurtured and loved her all these months.

I am also so grateful for everyone’s support throughout my pregnancy and for making it so easy for me to continue to workout. You are an amazing community and I cannot begin to express my gratitude to you all for making me feel like a badass mama.

 At her passing, I promised my baby girl that I was finally going to crack those pull-ups. You’ll see me on those bars soon working harder than ever to make my baby proud.”

-Monica, Jeff and Malena

  4. Jeff :

    Monica and Jeff, really sorry to hear this news, I believe you were my neighbor at zocalo and hearing this is tough. We caught up at jakes in dec and realized our crossfit ties. Prayers and thoughts to your family.

  5. Pottsie :

    I’m so very sorry for your loss… My thoughts are with you and your family. Please let any of us know if you need anything at all. 🙁


  6. Sara Lew :

    Thinking of you, Monica.

  7. Patrick M :

    What a beautiful picture. What a special person to make me smile just through a photo. Thanks for sharing your journey. IF there is anything you need let me know. Pull up practice soon. 🙂


  8. Julia :

    Oh Monica, she’s beautiful. My heart aches for you. You are, indeed, the strongest Mama I know. Much love to you and your family. I’ll be thinking of you always.

  9. Erin :

    Monica, my heart breaks for your family. Your strength is amazing, and I have no doubt you’re already making your baby girl proud.
    That pullup milestone is right around the corner, and we’ll all be rooting you on!

  10. Chans :

    I wish I had something brilliant or magical to say! I don’t. But I do know that in the brief time she was with you she felt your love more than you can imagine. Somehow in these times we get closer to eachother more than we ever could have and somehow we get through. Your family will have to find strength it didn’t know it had and you will love eachother all, Eva included, that much more than you ever could have.

    Absolutely nothing has changed us as significantly as the lose of our children. I believe all these tradegys happen for a reason, I can’t pretend to understand the reason, but I know its there. Matt will be competing with Eva on his mind and in his heart this weekend.

    With a heavy heart, we send our love across the mountain to CO. I will have a good cry and eat ice cream with you anytime!

    Matt and Cherie

  11. One has accurately crafted the actual challenging meaning in a very simple and crystal clear approach. I greatly recognize the value of it.
