What’s in store for you in 2019?
Doing my best in the body that I have on that day. I have been battling injuries, so not sure where I will be with competing. I am now a master’s athlete, so who knows?
Favorite competition you’ve ever done and why?
Probably Cape Town! Reasons listed above
You and your EHP athletes have been competing with GameDay since 2015. Do you have a favorite memory from any of those events?
In Mankato in 2015 I remember hitting a heavy clean, front squat and jerk at a weight I wasn’t sure I could even lift! I was so proud of that lift!
What keeps you busy outside of training and coaching?
I love doing anything outdoors. Just ask my husband, I am always wanting to be busy! I love being at the lake (winter or summer), I would really like to get a snowboarding trip in at some point. I am back in school to be a Chiropractic Acupuncturist right now, so that has taken up some brain power. I am also busy in clinic treating patients and am getting to release a membership based sports medicine care package!
With the changes in regionals and the games, what do you think that means for competitive fitness in the next few years?
I think the change will be interesting. At first I wasn’t so sure of the change. Competing on a World Stage changed that. It was definitely interesting being one of the only American’s to compete over in Cape Town. I think the Sport will definitely grow because of this. After spending time working with team USA, I feel like CrossFit will become similar to them and bridge a lot of world wide gaps. It does competing more interesting when you travel half way around the world to do it, but that is all a part of overcoming adversity.
Will we see you in the crowd at GameDay Mankato this year?
I hope so!
