Many of you requested we reschedule due to your Spring Break vacations (and WHY did you not invite us??).
Please RSVP quickly so that we can identify those interested in giving their own short ignite talk.

Yo, Habit Designers! There's the African saying, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." As we started to explore last time with Charles Duhigg of The New York Times, Habit Design sustainably applied beyond 100 days requires a strong community, so we're thrilled to be able to bring you an evening we're dedicating on that theme featuring Dr. Allison Belger and... some of you! Thanks to our new friends at Adaptive Path for hosting us in their cool, new digs right on Pier 1!
- RSVP NOW as you know we always sell out quickly.
- Bring a +1. "... go together", remember?
- Nominate yourself to tell a short 5-minute story (more info when you RSVP).

6-6:45: Social mingling, networking
6:45-7:30: 4-5 IGNITE-style talks from fellow Habit Designers
7:30-8:00: Dr. Belger & CrossFit
8:00-8:30: Wrapup, social mingling
8:30-: Dinner nearby for those who want to continue the conversation...
ABOUT DR. BELGER:
Allison Belger earned her BA degree from Dartmouth College, a master's degree from Northwestern University, and a doctoral degree in psychology from The Wright Institute in Berkeley, California. With her husband, TJ, Dr. Belger owns four CrossFit affiliate gyms called TJ's Gym. She juggles management of the family business, her work as a licensed psychologist and fitness coach, and her role as mom to two young daughters. She knows first-hand the importance of community--of having a network of mutual support and human connection in the midst of our hectic, technology-driven lives. A former division-one collegiate soccer player and five-time marathoner, she has also been part of the wilderness adventure community and has trained for various elite athletic events, competing both individually and as part of a team.
Dr. Belger is passionate about telling stories of people who are making lives better through the power of community.The Power of Community: CrossFit and the Force of Human Connection is Dr. Belger's first book which just released last week. Here's a brief video.
See you then!
