After competing at Regionals for 3 years and competing at the National level in weightlifting for one year, I ended up with two very serious injuries, both of which required surgery and extensive rehab. The road has been long at times, but there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel. Let's see where this next road takes us. 😉


How I Eat

I eat to live, and sometimes I live to eat. 😁

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

I record my workouts

My Athletic Background

I did not grow up playing sports...just beating up the neighborhood boys that tried to bully my little brother. I still enjoy trying to beat up on the boys now...

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course

I have attended one or more specialty courses

I train other people

Short story: I never worked out. I went to grad school and got fat really quick. I decided that sucked. I started running. I lost weight. I started running races while living in Seattle. I moved to Charleston and it was to stinkin' hot to be running all the time. I found Crossfit. I never looked back.

My Work/Rest Schedule

After 2 major surgeries in the last 14 months, I'm am still in physical therapy and still limited in what I can do. But that doesn't stop me from still having fun, doing my best, and showing others to do the same. So what if life hands you a couple of lemons??? Make some limoncello and chill out! It will be ok!

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years
