There I was minding my own business, enjoying my Rev class…

In runs a group of people I didn’t really know, looking “half dead”.

The group had just run from Las Cuevas to The Oval –

WOW!!  I wondered if I could ever do that!

Dial back a year.

I was on a mission, I had a plan.

To be a certain weight and look a certain way by age 50.

A friend introduced me to Body       Pump & Spin.

I was told that I should add weight training to my routine, for many reasons.

I had reservations – didn’t want to look like a bodybuilder,

but decided to give it a try.

It was painful, but I persevered,

as I started seeing the results I wanted – and no bulk!

Fast forward to that fateful day.

The gym had been bought over by Rodney Vire

and CrossFit was added to the schedule.

It looked “insane”, so I stayed clear.

But that Las Cuevas run had me intrigued.

I was pumping and revving my life away – creature of habit.

But my weight plateaued,

so like a hamster on its wheel,

I was “running” but no longer going or getting anywhere.

 

So I decided to mix it up – try the CrossFit …

see if I could actually do that Las Cuevas run.

Well if I thought Pump and Rev were strenuous …

a new word needs to be invented for the “pain” of CrossFit.

But I am a gluten for punishment and love a challenge and after a year,

I had not only reached my goal,

but I felt amazing and didn’t look too shabby either.

I was back!!  At 50, I felt like 20 again.

However, I was also now “hooked” –  line and sinker.

I was totally fascinated by this sport with its many elements.

I drank the “CrossFit” KOOLAID.
