Workout of the day
On Saturdays, we commonly gather for work that falls outside of our usual CrossFit routine: mobility, partner and team workouts where we work together to accomplish a goal, and even our expeditions outside the box to use our fitness in new environments.
All of that is still on the schedule for this Saturday, but there’s another way we’ll be gathering to get out and make a difference, too.
Several members have asked about the Fight Supremacy march being organized by BLM Cambridge and BLM Boston. I’ve agreed to help get a group of CrossFitters (and friends) from CFSV down to the event and make sure everyone gets back.
We will depart from CrossFit Somerville at 10am this Saturday.
The march begins at the Reggie Lewis Athletic Center just off the Orange Line, so we’ll be carpooling to Sullivan Station for a short trip there. Once there, the march will proceed two miles to Boston Common. Crowds are expected. I’ll be bringing supplies. The protests will probably end between 2 and 3 pm, at which point the Government Center or Chinatown stops nearby will allow for easy access back to Sullivan Station on the Orange Line.
Our role at this protest will be to support the queer and POC organizers who are leading the effort, demonstrate resistance to white supremacy, and if needed to place ourselves between the more vulnerable and/or targeted members of this march and those who would seek to do them harm.
If you’d like to attend, please let JT know in an email. I’ll add you to the list and help coordinate for getting there and back again.
WHAT TO EXPECT: 2 miles of walking. Lots of standing around. Large crowds. Confusion. Shouting.
WHAT TO BRING: yourself. Extra water. Friends – all are welcome to join our contingent.
