Member since: I am thinking officially October 2017, but I have been a friend and drop in since the beginning!
What do you do for a living? Oh my! I am a formerly a nurse, currently a part-time attorney, manager of 5 rental properties and mother of 5.
How did you hear about CrossFit and what was your first workout? I first heard of Crossfit from driving by Cahaba Crossfit and seeing the signs. I honestly had no clue what it was about until I tried it. I started CrossFit nearly 8 years ago and can’t even begin to recall my first workout! I do remember that it had pull-ups and i was ridiculously sore afterward.
How many days do you CrossFit? What classes do you normally attend? For years I was a Monday- Friday, rarely miss a day dedicated CrossFitter. This past year, I went back to work and dropped to 3 days. I have no set schedule, but typically attend the 8:15 class.
Favorite CrossFit movement/workout? I LOVE to clean. . . the barbells, the rig, the wall balls and the rowers. Nothing brings me more satisfaction than ending a workout with a nice shiny bar or wall all:-). Aside from that. . . ROMWOD brings me immense joy. In third place would be a nice long chipper.
Least favorite CrossFit movement/workout? Snatch. Didn’t even have to think about it. There is no close second. Getting hives just thinking about it.
What motivates you/keeps you coming back to CrossFit Mudtown? I love the encouragement between athletes, the variety of movements and the focus on functional fitness.
Most embarrassing/funniest gym moment? There was that one time when I realized I had a huge hole in the crotch of my tights during ab mat sit-ups. I just relocate to face the wall and finished my workout!
Favorite thing about Birmingham? The people here are nice, the food is incredible and close to beach or mountains.
What accomplishment are you most proud of (outside and inside of the gym)? I completed Ironman Florida in 2005.
What is your favorite meal? I love any kind of seafood prepared any way.
What are some of your interests outside of CrossFit? I love to backpack and travel
What is one goal that you are currently working on? I am just trying to get consistent again while a train for my 8th marathon.
Do you have a hidden talent? Unfortunately no:-(
