“And then there is the most dangerous risk of all- -the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.”

When I lost my job coaching CrossFit, I felt like my identity was taken away. I didn’t know who I was anymore. I needed to learn how to function without the crutch of being at that gym and the routine of my comfortable life. Slowly, I started to integrate myself back into the real world and establish a new normal. 12 days ago I got on a plane to another country without knowing a single person. 😳 I returned today with 30 new friends and a new outlook on life. Thank you to the everyone I came in contact with (especially the classes of 2020 and 2021) for opening my eyes to possibilities I’d never considered before. I can’t wait to come visit you all now that I have 30 new places to stay 😏

WOW-what a weekend. There are so many moments I want to reflect on…

Every six months I write a goals sheet. I review the previous six month’s goals and update accordingly. The last goals sheet I updated included a portion that read: “Compete at Wodapalooza.” I can now say that I’ve done that.

This was the biggest competition I’ve competed at so far in my career. To say I’m proud of myself would be an understatement.

As a coach, athlete, and teammate, I am so unbelievably proud of the two women who stood on either side of me. This weekend confirmed that we are on the right path.

To the true heart and soul of our team- @vannadine9992 @csoupik @maddstuff @bradley_hansen THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. We would not have been able to get through this weekend with yous 💚

Thank you @liftingcultureapparel and @vigorous_apparel for the gear. We’re proud to represent ✊🏽

Thank you to everyone in our COMMUNITY who sent well wishes, texts, calls, posts, watched our live streams, gave tips, encouraging words, and motivation. To the strangers and competitors we met who became friends and the @thewodapalooza judges, staff, and volunteers who make this event possible, thank you!

This weekend was nothing short of amazing and I can’t wait to do it again next year 😏 #XGoneGiveItToYa
