Quite simply, it wasn’t until I hit my early 30’s before I learned how to cook (better), tap into creativity (frugality), and in general, live Life a little more richly (experience). It was also around this time that even though I was (and still am) an involved mother of 3, I also acknowledged the dire necessity to also pursue hobbies that selfishly had NOTHING to do with my beloved offspring; it kept me sane and centered to carve out ME moments. Over the next few years, I joined the gym, found great support systems, and started the mental and physical process of becoming FIT. One activity led to another: from dance, to zumba, from zumba to cardio/strength classes, to recreational sport pole dancing. I stepped further out of my comfort zone and ran my first 5k, then mud runs. Mid 30’s, 3 kids, and I was living more than I had been because I was willing to TRY. It was around this time that I grudgingly agreed to try CrossFit with my husband, though I was scared witless since I thought I was a “lightweight” in the fitness world: what if everyone laughed at me? The CrossFit Chasm opened up and I fell headlong into the rabbit hole. Nearly 3 years into the sport, I am still both humbled and empowered by what I can do, what I will do, what my potential is. I won’t say it “saved my life”, but it sure has made it a lot more fun and rewarding.
Opportunity didn’t knock; we sought it out. As a co-owner and coach at CrossFit TBR, I am able to exercise both the brain and the body….and hopefully light the fire under other people as they pursue their fitness goals. Vanity, self-reliance, strength of mind and body, pride, determination, and (most importantly), setting an awesome example for my kids, are a multitude of driving factors to keep my momentum moving forward.
