A Fitness Friday Birthday

      5 Comments on A Fitness Friday Birthday

Does anyone know what today is? AND it’s Fitness Friday, does it get any better? It wasn’t my best week in terms of fitness.

      Comments Off on How To Win The CrossFit OPEN: Looking Back

This was my first year competing in the CrossFit Open. Honestly, I didn’t quite know what to expect.

Giving My All in 15.4

      1 Comment on Giving My All in 15.4

The previous Open WODs have worked in line with 50 States events but it was looking like I was going to have to find a place to do 15.4 when we didn’t have an event on the schedule. But then I got an email from Kingman CrossFit in Arizona asking if it was too late for us to come hang… Read more »

      Comments Off on Fitness Friday #12 & Using That Inner Passion

Wouldn’t you agree? Every day that I’m feeling stuck or frustrated or at a loss of what’s next or how to make the 50 States project grow, I am reminded of my passion for this project and I use every ounce of that passion to get through the harder days. I know that when all is said and done, it’s… Read more »
