How long have you been doing CrossFit? 1.5 years

How many times have you competed in the Open? This is my 1st Open

Why did you choose to compete in the Open this year? I knew it would be a great challenge. I also wanted to join my classmates that I train with weekly.

What has been your favorite part about the Open so far? The anticipation leading into the workout and the camaraderie that we have built in our Master’s program.

Anything else you would like to add? The Open is really challenging and personally rewarding. Reaching physical and emotional limits that I thought weren’t possible and pushing through those barriers feels good. That’s CrossFit in a nutshell and why I love CrossFit. Doing the Open, and group class with great people that teach you and make you better is the icing on the cake.
