On fear

Well hello… life. I miss my happy little corner of the internet, but as much as I plan on sitting down and taking the time to write, days, weeks, MONTHS go by.. and here I am ....more

You don’t know who you inspire

“Wow, that was amazing!” the unfamiliar face said to me with wide eyes and a big smile while I was standing up after being exhausted from pushing the 360# sled across the turf. I smiled back at the very petite mother of two, who looked like she weighed no more than 100# herself, impressed at her drive pushing her last sled push at 245#. It was her third Crossfit class and her first Saturday team workout, in which Coach Morgan always comes up with the most horrific and devious workouts; this one filling almost the full hour of teams rotating doing sled pushes of increasing weight ....more

Still drinking the Crossfit Kool-Aid

This weekend I was awarded, at my third Crossfit Prom, with the honor of “Resident Crossfit Kool-Aid Kid”, after last year winning the “Transformation Award”, and the year before being recognized for a major PR moment over the year. It was really such an honor because the past year I feel that I have grown a lot in my Crossfit life, setting some priority goals, and changing up my programming. Despite working out in the back of the gym away from the traditional classes, I sometimes felt removed from the team, but I still did my best to encourage, motivate and inspire ....more

I am whatever I say I am..

I was looking for an image to go along with some recent thoughts I had about making a major life change, changing your mindset, and being open to new things, and I came across this. It got me thinking of how often we do fall into some bucket or category that...more
