Story– I love to workout. In high school I was on the cross country, basketball and softball teams. In college, I played basketball and softball. I loved the comradery and competition. After college, the competition and community went away and my workouts turned into solo endeavors. Once I started having kids, it just got harder to find time to workout. My “me” time became 5am workouts running or doing the latest beach body workouts. I got bored with my workouts and had a hard time meeting others who liked to exercise. In 2011, my twin sister introduced to me CrossFit. I could barely raise my arms to wash my hair, but immediately fell in love with it. I love the community. I love the challenge. I love the competition. I have met some great people at Mission CrossFit. This box has welcomed me into the area and made the two years my family was stationed here a blessing. We leave this month. I will miss all of you guys!
