6 months later….
November 4th marks my 6 month anniversary at Crossfit Firebase! What an amazing 6 months it has been! First, I need to say THANK YOU!!!!! Raquel, Danny, Jason & Carlos you have all been there for me every step of the way. You have given me knowledge, encouragement, praise, strength & yes, an occasional kick in the…pants when I needed it! Also, to everyone of my crossfit family members… Thank you too! It is such a great feeling to have others cheering you on & encouraging you when all you want to do is collapse! It really helps to push the limits!
You ALL are amazing & inspire me every day to be stronger.My journey began 6 months (& 54 pounds ago!!!) YES 54 pounds in 6 months!!! I look at pictures of myself & don’t recognize me! More importantly are the personal gains I have made. I NEVER ran, but on Halloween I completed my 2nd 5k in 30:03 & was 7th in my age group! At CFT I deadlifted 190 lbs!!! I can do 2 handstand push-ups!!! I never thought I could do any of these things, but I guess anything is possible if you have a team like Crossfit FireBase behind you!! I now look forward to the WODS & what the next day will bring. No matter what the workout is, I always feel a sense of accomplishment at the end. I feel like I can take on any challenge that comes my way.Recently someone referred to me as an athlete & I laughed! 6 months ago I could barely walk without getting out of breath, now I am an athlete! Whats next? 10 handstand push ups, making it to the top of the rope & muscle ups!!! Lookout guys you may have created a monster!!!!! There may even be a triathlon in my future :)! Thank you is not enough to express the gratitude that I feel towards everyone at Crossfit FireBase. Danny & Raquel you guys are amazing! Jason & Carlos, thanks for being the BEST TRAINERS EVER!!!
