It only seems appropriate that as summer is right around the corner that Tom Duffy is CFS spotlight Athlete of the Month .  Tom is the second longest member at CFS. In fact when he started he had hair 🙂  He  is such a joy no matter how busy he is with his life. He always gives the best he can in every WOD and never hesitates to help others do the best they can.  I feel as is I can speak for everyone that knows Tom he just makes your day brighter every time you see him.
