From Kate Lavie:

“Mary Lacy Gilbride passed away on September 18, 2013. Her birthday was this past Thursday– April 20th. She was a very close friend of mine and an incredible athlete and Crossfit competitor.

We do this workout to remember how thoughtful, driven, kind-hearted, and genuine Mary Lacy was. She ultimately lost a hard-fought battle with depression and took her own life, and we work hard today to remember her and to remind ourselves that we don’t know what anyone else is struggling with- so it is our responsibility to be compassionate and kind to others no matter what. I think about Mary Lacy every day and am grateful to you all for celebrating her life with me today.
Thank you all so much for doing this workout with me- losing a friend is incredibly difficult, but being able to work hard in her memory with such a wonderful community makes a difficult anniversary a little bit easier to deal with.”
