“Pogue”
On April 19th 2013, my 19-year old brother fell asleep at the wheel driving home from college. It was over for him in an instant but this single moment has changed everything for my family and his friends. As time passes, it is natural to let both the negative and positive feelings fade away but I wanted to use this as an opportunity to share some of the positive memories that this day brings about.

Ian Pogue was an empathetic, goofy teenager with the capacity to light up any room with a laugh or smile. He was an avid weightlifter (SQUATS!!) and valued his functional fitness, constantly looking for ways to challenge himself and those around him. He could out-jump people close to a foot taller than him and never back down from a physical challenge. Outside of the gym, he loved music and playing the bass. He was a man of incredible faith and he cared so much for everyone around him, regardless of status or circumstance.

My brother has become the cornerstone of inspiration for my life. When he passed away, I was deep in the throws of my addiction, oblivious to my potential or the pain I was causing to those that cared about me. I knew that I could never have that time back with him that I had squandered but I was determined to make amends by living my best life. Today I can say that I have done just that.

On this six-year anniversary of his passing, I wanted to celebrate his life with all of you (my Crossfit family) with a workout that he would have loved and I’m sure we’ll hate! See you at the gym!"
