Janelle’s AskAthletes Entry
Check out Janelle R’s entry to yesterday’s AskAthletes CrossFit Free Membership contest. While she may not have won, we think her write up was awesome enough to share with you guys.
Originally, my Crossfit adventure was ALL about me – thinner waist, tighter butt, killer legs, etc. Then when I got engaged to the love of my life my attention and focus shifted drastically. I now Crossfit because as we embark on this journey of creating a family it gives me the strength, endurance and most importantly the confidence to face everyday challenges with grace, humility and courage. I Crossfit for me, my loved ones and my community so I can live a long healthy life that allows be to give more to them than they give to me.
Great words, Janelle! Keep up the great work at the gym!
