Competed in the Crossfit Games 2009 (came in 10th on 1st event-rolling across finish line from heat stroke cuased by my taking an allergy medication before the run. Sadly I couldn't finish the weekend), 2010 - 3rd, 2011 -had a baby girl, 2012 - 5th. I began crossfitting 3months before the 2009 games. Before crossfit, I was a recreational gymnast, enjoyed mountain biking, snow boarding, roller blading, aerial fabric, rock climbing, and running. I had never done lifting before CrossFit and wasn't a collegiate athlete. I have enjoyed growing with this sport, and watching the sport grow.
