September Athlete of the Month

 In Athlete of the Month
Congratulations to Adam Graeber on being selected as September Athlete of the Month. Adam has been part of the Mission community for well over the past 3 years. With an active duty status in the Army combined with also working in the medical field, Adam juggles a hectic schedule. He still finds the time and energy to come in put a beat down on the workouts. It may not be a steady class time but you will find him in one of the classes at some point throughout the day. For those reasons and many more is why Adam has been selected as Athlete of the Month.

Story – As my wonderful wife will tell you I was stubbornly against CrossFit for the first year we dated for all the usual stereotypical reasons (you know like how it’s a cult that will leave you crippled with injuries).  Eventually she gave up trying to convince me.  Fast forward to the summer before we got married and I was looking for something to shake up my workouts and decided to give CrossFit a try.  Since that first class I was hooked and have never looked back.  CrossFit has given me a lot over the 4 years I’ve been doing it.  However the most important to me is the community I’ve gained here at Mission.  It made moving to San Antonio a wonderful rather than stressful experience and I know for both Mary and I it will be tough to leave when the time comes (hopefully many years from now).  It’s too bad I will be away for work this month to fully abuse my athlete of the month powers but it saves Ignacio from 1000 daily burpees so perhaps for the best.
Adam
