Bio

I have a family of crossfitters. We are all inspired by my grandson Ethan who has a rare genetic syndrome with many disabilities. He loves coming to Crossfit Adrenaline more than anything. As always I have dedicated my Games experience to MECP2 Duplication Syndrome awareness. (My 2 daughters Allie (Bourdon) Brown and Lindsay (Bourdon) Menerey and son in law TJ Menerey were on Team CF Adrenaline ;They had podium finish (3rd)in 2013 Games at Carson. My wife Vicki was Ranked 23 after 2014 Masters qualifier and just missed the Games. My athletic background includes qualifying and running the Boston Marathon, Florida half Iron Man, and cycling time trial on Mt Ventoux and some Masters 10k road race championships.This is my 3 Rd trip to the Games and the journey to get their is the biggest test of fitness I have experienced ,but also the best comradary among the athletes Thank you to all the huge support from my wife, family ,and Adrenaline friends and the many Boxes and CF Coaches that have taken me in upon my travels.. Daughter Allie hopes to deliver twin Grandsons around the time of the Games.(Update :Grand Twins Brady and Isaac born on July 15 !!!)
