I have been Crossfitting for over 2 years, starting June 12, 2012…I can still tell you my very first WOD.
The Community; The feeling of being so deeply committed to something that it’s all you think about; The desire to stay healthy and fit, and be a role model for friends and my kids; When you CrossFit, every day holds 3 things: A. a challenge; B. a success; and C. an opportunity to improve.
I have two. One’s an experience and one’s a moment. The Experience: Spending a weekend with 23 other TT athletes, 3 coaches, and a couple of TT spectators at the Ranch Wars in MA. The Moment: Watching Holly Hutchins finish the 3,200 K row at the Frosty Flourisher in January. The display of heart and emotion that followed that row is something I will not forget.
Favorite WOD / Workout?
The Bear Complex, Karen, and Jackie
The people/community. Our closest friends and the people we see most often are those we’ve met at TT.
Tyler and Meghan Barnes. Watching the results and love of CF that they’ve been able to drive out of so many athletes over the past two years through their knowledge and experience of the sport inspires me to do the same. In addition, each of the last two years counting/judging during The CrossFit Open lit the fire of the inner coach within.
Who inspires you?
Somebody different every day. Whether it’s someone at the same level as me that put up huge numbers that I want to keep up with, or an athlete that got their first T2B, or someone that has been working so hard at their mobility so they can now do a perfect air squat at full depth, I find inspiration all throughout the gym.
I can’t tell you that.
The other athletes in class. Knowing that the feeling of failure sucks. Knowing how much stronger, both mentally and physically I’ll be once it’s over.
