I was always an active kid, running around with all the boys in my neighborhood cul-de-sac. I didn't play much organized sports besides a year of cross country and soccer. I'd say my fitness journey began in college when I took run conditioning as a required PE course. This sparked a few years of recreational running, completing a bunch of 10ks and half marathons. I moved to Massachusetts in 2017 and there was a CrossFit gym across the street. I wandered in one day because I heard it was a good place to make friends. I was instantly hooked on the atmosphere, the challenge, and the community. The highlight for me has been learning that nothing is impossible with time and dedication. I didn't think I'd ever get a muscle up or learn to handstand walk, but with consistency anything is possible.
