Strong Is More Than Strength


Being active has been a part of my life since I was young, with long distance running being my primary activity.  I have done many other cross training sports and activities, but I was ready to try something new.

CrossFit had always peaked my interest, but I kept thinking that I wasn’t strong enough.  CrossFit was only for super strong and athletic people! There was no way I could do that.

But then finally, I gave it a shot-and I am now hooked!!

I am definitely the weakest person in all of my classes- having to scale everything down- but I don’t mind.  And it doesn’t seem that anyone else cares about that either!  Everyone is so nice and supportive.  Then I started the rowing club.  And again- I’m the slowest- but the support from everyone is unbelievable…

And it’s so much fun!!

It is extremely challenging, which I love!  Between the regular Friction classes, and the rowing, I can already tell that I have become a stronger runner.  I’ll be running my 10th marathon in the spring, and I am looking forward to seeing what CrossfFt does as a part of my training regime.
