Funniest memory at the box: There is always fun to be had but one of the most memorable mornings was the day Jake made an example of me and my HSPU with the mats :). You bet the next time they came in a WOD I was at the wall ready to go without the mats. Sometimes we get comfortable with the way we do things and need a little push to advance.

What makes you keep coming back? Growing up I didn’t do sports, so this is something that I want to get better at and it’s fun.

What was it like experiencing your first CrossFit Competition? Nervous and Scary
If you could give any advice for a person new to CrossFit, what would it be?: Keep coming back
Please list two future goals. 6 months and One year: 3 months: get better at DU, 6 months: get more sleep and improve my snatch form, 1 year: Snatch 100#, Backsquat 215 and finally survive the Dogwood Canyon trail run two day trail run 15 K and 25K with Audrey Walker, Scott Amos and the gazelle Marya Amos…what was I thinking!
