Husband, father of 2 great and athletic kids, Attorney running my own firm. My wife and son (13 years old) crossfit as well. Played football and ran track in high school where I was a sprinter and threw the javelin. Was a gym rat for years doing the typical chest, arms, shoulders, back and legs routine. At one point I could bench 300 lbs but probably couldn't run a mile. Then my legal career got very hectic and I put on weight and stopped working out at all. I found crossfit in 2009 where I trained for about 2 months at the home of Tanya (2009 champ) and Josh Wager. I stopped for various reasons then went back in January of 2011 and have never stopped. Bring on the wods!!! Competed in the Masters Division in 2011 and 2012.
