Bio

I started Crossfit in January 2011 after driving past the neighborhood affiliate and doing some YouTube research. I was a month in when I fractured both my tibia and fibula requiring surgery. In August '11 I was given the green light to start training again despite the fact that my fibula remained in two pieces. Since August I have been working to regain the lost strength in my leg - it's coming! Without Crossfit I would not be this far along in my recovery. On February 23 of 2012 I visited my surgeon for more X-rays and we discovered that my fibula has started to fuse - over a year since it was broken. Stronger than yesterday!
