What’s there to know about me? I’m starting my third decade in this crazy world, and trying to build a loving family by surrounding myself with positive people. I’ve been CrossFitting since January ’09, and CrossFitt-ed through two pregnancies. I’ve never really been athletic. I’m the girl that had no gymnastics background (I can’t even do a cartwheel!!), no strength(couldn’t do a strict pull-up), and no stamina(14 minute mile during P.E.). Yes, I was that girl in grade school, and thank god we didn’t have any rigorous P.E. activities in high school because I went to a small all girls private high school.
My BFF started Crossfit about a year before I did, and she got amazing results, and when I tried it I was hooked. It’s a wonderful atmosphere to surround yourself with, because everyone is rooting for you. No one cares how heavy you are going, they care that you finish the workout without cheating yourself. At first I started at Crossfit Silicon Valley, and then moved to Crossfit Palo Alto. I can’t imagine my life without Crossfit, and wonder what I’d be doing if there wasn’t Crossfit. Would I be the chronic cardio type girl, who is afraid to get “bulky”? Probably. But I’ve learned that being “Strong is Beautiful”. Not only physically strong, but mentally strong, and that is what this type of conditioning trains you in. Pushing you to your limits, without even realizing that it’s possible.
