If you could be an animal, what would you be? Oh, man, I just love being human too much.
What do you do to relax? Go for walks and listen to the birds

Anything else you would like to share: I’m always amazed to see that one’s state of mind determines much in life – happiness, health, success and even age. Thus, protecting your mind is everything and taking good care of your body is a part of that. I LOVE how CrossFit challenges me both mentally and physically. Many WODs are intimidating and yet, I’ve found that if I maintain a positive attitude, I can somehow work through them…and having an awesome community of people that encourage each other makes it all the better.
