Story: I initially tried crossfit and decided that not being able to walk properly for days at time just wasn’t for me. Fast forward a year and a half later… I found myself sitting at a computer eight hours a day with no physical activity and my bagel bite/Gatorade diet was far from “clean.” Luckily a few of my missionista friends convinced me to give it another shot and man am I glad I listened to them! I have met so many inspiring people at Mission, both coaches and athletes, that not only motivate me to be a better athlete but to be a better person as well. So excited for more PRs and more great people.
