How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I record my workouts

Training can be a bit sporadic with travel and other priorities most days it's a quick workout that lasts about 30 minutes including warm-ups and cool downs. This difference in training compared to years in the past actually makes me look forward to the Open more than before!
