Today is Jon A’s birthday! KC, his girlfriend and fellow Intrepid, has written a nice bday post.
Hey there Intrepid! I have the pleasure today of sharing with you a little about a man I’ve had the joy of calling my boyfriend. Here’s a couple fun facts about Jonathan Alarcon (Jon A.) :
-He does not like his birthday very much. One year he forgot about it until someone called him to tell him happy birthday.
-He loves pizza and beer. Absolutely loves them. They frequent our “treat yoself” nights.
-He loves to dance, and will often to do so by himself in the car. You can catch him in the zone in between lifts, he has started breakin’ it down at the gym lately.
-As a young kid, he had a New Jersey accent for a couple years, and no one in his family is from there.
-He played shortstop in high school and college, and had a great shot at making it in the big leagues. But, he decided against the lifestyle that it came with.
-In his late teens and early twenties he rocked some pretty legit sideburns.
-He has a witty sense of humor, and loves puns. He and his best friend could go a whole day communicating in puns…I’m totally lost when I’m with them.
-He likes to set a goal on the time it will take him to get in and out of the grocery store, and frequently nails it to the second.
-He got me hooked on Crossfit!
I’m sure a couple of you have noticed in the WOD’s that Jon does not merely float or skate by, but plows through with all his might. What’s so awesome about him is that he’s like that in everyday life as well. Whether it’s working, working out, running errands, eating pizza…he operates quickly, efficiently, and effectively. He puts everything he has into everything he does. I’m pretty sure he has been making goals and hitting PR’s since the womb 😉 Besides his strong work ethic, he has the biggest heart and is devoted to those he loves. His energy for life is contagious, and he has influenced me in so many positive ways. He’s pretty much an all around awesome guy! I love you my babe, cheers to your 27th year of life and the good times to come! – KC
