I was proud to represent my box, Crossfit North Fulton, as their first athlete to qualify for The Crossfit Games and represent my region, as the first female Masters athlete to compete in the CF Games. After the 2012 Games, I realized I needed to focus on strength to be a better Crossfiter. I competed in my first power lifting meet on October 9th. The USAPL Georgia and Southern States Power Lifting Championships. I broke all the GA State records for my age division in bench, squat, deadlift and total. I also broke the National records for deadlift and total. An injury impeded my Crossfiting from October into December. I have tried to work on my cardio after such a long break. In February I competed in Garage Games One and took first place in the 50 and over division. Impending wrist surgery may keep me from being successful in the Open this year and making it to the Games for 2013. But my long term goal is to be back in Cali for the 2014 Games when I will be competing in the 55-59 year old division.
