I started competing in October 2010 and won my first provincial competition, then I went on to do the open, securing a spot for regionals and finally placed second in the Canada East region and qualified for the 2011 Reebok Crossfit games. It was a wonderful experience, more than words can say and I was able to secure 25th place.
