We're really lucky at Arena Ready.  We have a tight-knit group of members and many of them have been with us for a very long time.  The really "old school" or "OG" members who were with us in the beginning are some of the friendliest, most supportive, and most encouraging folks you'll ever meet.  They shape the culture of our gym.  They welcome newcomers with smiles and and cheers of support.  They make us better by inspiring us to keep improving - as athletes, as coaches, and as people.  They are our family.

Jeremy is as OG as it gets.  He was here back when we didn't have paint on the walls, long before we even had two sides to our gym.  He was such a big part of so many of our community's happenings - our very first Open at AR, holiday WODs and celebrations, social gatherings, competitions, and personal and team/community milestones.  He is one of the best athletes we know, one of the smartest guys around, and one of the nicest and most interesting people you'll ever meet.  
Selfishly, we are sad that Jeremy and his lovely counterpart Kate have moved south to the Peninsula - but we are also happy and excited for them as they enter into a new chapter of their lives.  Jeremy promises to visit on Saturdays every now and again to keep in touch and to get in a great WOD with some of his AR buddies - please give him crap if time goes by and he doesn't make good on his promise.  

We'll miss you, Jeremy.  Thanks for being such an awesome part of Arena Ready - we're lucky to know you, and to call you our friend.
