Crossfit Pallas, the affiliate I co-own with Eamon Coyne, has changed my life. I was on track to work 80 hours a week as an auditor before opening the box, which we did while I was finishing my MBA. While completely changing my life course seemed a hard decision, running CFP full time was the best thing that has ever happened to me. My ever supportive girlfriend moved up to Ithaca with me, to help me chase my dream of making it to the Games...and I won't stop busting my ass till I get there. It's a new year - 2013 was only the beginning.
