We Were Proud

This picture describes the feeling of a 2nd place overall win only out of 1st placeby 6 seconds.    Our team had1 teammate do all 80 deadlifts and another team mate do all 30 thrusters straight.  It was an epic 2nd workout for cookies and cream at our 1st cross fit competition, we were proud to represent Nubody Fitness.

I do it because of her, my hero, to make her proud

My mom passed away almost 7 years ago from cancer. 
That in itself was one of the most difficult things I've ever experienced.  My mom was strong, brave and raised me to believe in myself.  She encouraged me to do anything I wanted and to do it now because time is never promised.  My mom encouraged me to move away, see the world, stand on my own two feet and feel what it's like to be proud of myself.

When she was diagnosed with cancer she never complained or cried in front of me.  Instead she smiled and said "it's ok, I can beat this".  I remember those words during every grueling workout.  And I do it because of her, my hero, to make her proud.  To show her I am everything she prayed I'd be. I'm strong.

I Couldn't Be More Proud

This was such a fun event. And such an important event. Awareness is everything.
This year we actually had someone on our team who had recently been diagnosed with cervical cancer, she had a hysterectomy and they were able to get all of the cancer and today she's cancer free. She only had a couple of days to get ready for this competition yet she showed up and she killed it!!! It's just such a strong reminder of how important and how valuable life is. Last year we had 4 teams this year we had 5!! 15 strong women showed up!! And because we love this event so much and SLC CrossFit does an amazing job of putting this on next year we'll probably have more teams.
Here is our group picture I couldn't be more proud than to have participated with all of these strong women, three of which are my sisters. Such an amazing event and so much fun keep the good work outs coming and we'll see you again next year!!!
