I have been blessed to be part of Crossfit XLR8 since October of 2009.  When I started Crossfit, I was not sure what I was getting myself into.  I thought it was another “class” that I would attend for a couple of months and it would fade away like a fad.    Little did I realize, I joined a family that would push me, motivate me, challenge me and support me on a daily basis.

I remember my first crossfit WOD ever at the community center.  It entailed double unders. I was not able to do a double under, so I had to perform 4x as many singles instead.  This frustrated the heck out of me but gave me a goal to work towards.  It is what motivated me to return.  Since that day, our family grew and continues to do so, we have our own Box, and I can complete 100 DU’s in one minute.

I feel super honored to be a part of XLR8 and blessed to be named the Athlete of the Month.  Thank you to all of you that I get to work out with everyday and deserve this honor just as much or more than I do.  A HUGE thank you to Molly, Jason, Zeph, Greg & the rest of the awesome coaches for everything!!!
