Bio

Found CrossFit while in Balad, Iraq - wanted to lose weight and P90X looked silly (can't exercise to a video when the guy looks like the host of Survivor; and I hate repetition, seeing people doing exercises improperly in the class watching the video, and it seemed so boring). First class was Filthy Fifty. I only did 30 of each and even that was too much - I was limping ALL week, my calves were killing me.
