Rugby Over 50

I post a lot about workout routines I’m doing, supplements I take, routines I establish to try to stay strong, healthy and active.

This is why.

Last weekend we made a 10 hour trek to Savannah, GA to watch my 18 year old son play on a select-side college rugby team in a two-day tournament. However, when we arrived, he got sick and was essentially bed ridden for the entire time. So when you’ve driven 10 hours, and you’re stranded at a rugby tournament, what do you do?

You play rugby, of course!

I had a pair of shorts and cleats with me, so I searched around and found a couple of teams who needed players. One was an “old boys” team, the other was a combined college / men’s team. So while my son slept off his sickness, I had a great weekend playing rugby in Savannah.

When you’re healthy, when you’re strong, even at 51, you can do what you want to do, even walk-on to a rugby team.

Stay healthy!

  1. I wanted to share with you something I created – the Home & Travel WOD Generator.

    It’s a free web page that will randomly provide one of hundreds of no-gym, no-equipment hotel and home friendly workouts. It also has a built-in timing function for Tabata, AMRAP, EMOM, or a plain stopwatch. It includes many classic CrossFit bodyweight WODs.

    It can be found at:

    This is a great tool you can provide to your members during the upcoming busy fall months – for those that may be on vacation, traveling for the holidays, or otherwise unable to make it to class. The web page is free, and will always be free – no ads, no pop-ups, no ask for an email address.

    If you think this would be of use for your members, would you consider sharing on Facebook or Twitter, posting a link on your WOD blog, or maybe in any “resources” pages you may have?

    Thanks in advance,
