When/Why did you start CrossFit?
I started CrossFit about 4 years ago and it was because Kelly McIntosh would not stop bugging me to come in. So I came in on a day they were having a fun competition and they were all screaming and yelling and I said hell no. My son got me to come in a couple months later and I finally tried a class. I could hardly do a sit-up and everything I did was very very scaled.
How has CrossFit changed you?
I can do sit-ups now!! I don’t wear my knee brace anymore and I have a ton more motion in my knee. Also, I think about getting older and I see some of the older people that do CrossFit and how active they seem to be and I want that for myself.
What are your strengths/weaknesses in the gym?
Weakness: Everybody knows my weakness and I voice it way too much..it’s running. I cried the first time I ran/walked a mile around the block on Amelia, Matt asked if I was ok and I started to cry..I’ve cried 3 times.
What is your favorite WOD?
My favorite WOD is anything that is an AMRAP.
