2011- 2014, I am a mother of 3 ( Diego 7, Octavio 6, Elysa 18 months), and a Marine Corps Disabled Veteran. I started CrossFit in Harlem with AfroBrutlaity , but continue to learn and hone my craft at CrossFit Maven. I started crossFit to lose weight and deal with the challenges of a baby in the hospital due to prematurity, a son with special needs, and being a veteran in a civilian world, who truly wants back in the military. CrossFit changed my life has helped me lose 40lbs and has gotten me back into the shape I was when I was a Marine. I look to become a trainer and my biggest goal is to be able to make the games. I have a long way to go but as Marine Corps and CrossFit has taught me , I will get there if I keep working hard and never give up. Update: In 2015, I suffered a severe Concussion when I fell on black ice and was knocked out. Due to this, I had to stop doing CrossFit, developed migraines, and other injuries. Since this time I learned that I have Aspergers and also many injuries. In Nov. 2016 , I was cleared to come back to CrossFit. It's been very challenging. Being that it is like stating from scratch, yet having all the knowledge, and the issues of the new injuries. But with the amazing coaches and great community of the box I go to, I am hopeful to get back to where I was. This year will be my first open since everything, so it will be my start point. Nothing but to go up from here. I wish everyone a great open.
