I have learned a lot about myself since I started in March 2011 and I have overcome many obstacles on my journey. I have met some amazing people along this path and have been able to learn a lot, in particular, my boyfriend Alex, who has opened my eyes to many things and has been there for me in so many ways. I look forward to my road ahead with him and all the great people in the CrossFit community that have supported me from the beginning.
