I can’t believe we have to do a second Cinco de Mayo at home!  This is a post from Mark from a few years ago, that I wanted to share with you again.

Like we really need a reason to celebrate…

Well as our own Sarah Zee would say…”reason, I don’t need no stinkin’ reason”

Although todays WOD might look vaguely familiar to our CrossFit Pickering faithful I can assure you that by showing up for todays warmup…shown below…

Here are a few FUN facts to help celebrate CINCOde MAYO

  • The official name of Mexico is the United Mexican States.
  • Mexico is the 11th most populated country in the world with around 117 million people (as of July 2012).
  • Mexico is the 14th largest country by land area.
  • There are 31 states in Mexico as well as the capital city (Mexico City).
  • Mexican flag is full of national symbolism. The green strip represents the Independence Movement. The white stripe represents the purity of the Catholic faith. The red stripe represents the Spaniards that joined in the quest for Independence and the blood of the national heroes.
  • Tomatoes, Avocados, Mangos, Chilies, Squash, and Cocoa all originated in Mexico
  • Mexico City sinks 10 inches each year.
  • Tequila averages only 64 to 69 calories per ounce

There may be a test at the end of the WOD today…please be ready!
