The benefits of running are well documented, but it has its limitations. Other activities may reduce injury and enhance running. Author TJ Murphy presents an autobiographical look at his experience with Cross Fit.
The result both demystifies the activity as well as describing its benefit to his running - which was at a virtual standstill when he began. Further, it presents the competitive aspect of the activity without the "enthusiasm" that many converts take away from Cross Fit. The result is a well written, personal but objective view of the Cross Fit culture, as well as the benefits that can be taken from participating in a Cross Fit "Box."
