6 hours of driving. Done. Back from Phoenix. Intrigued, tired, happy, sore, yearning for more. Lots of emotions going through me as I close on the weekend of the SICest of the Southwest.
This weekend was full of firsts for me. It was my first time to compete in a CrossFit competition individually. It was my first time to represent ORIGINAL Nutritionals at an expo. And, it was my first time to be interviewed in regards to BirthFIT.
Competing was a blast. Lots of laughs with new faces. I did a personal best on the clean & jerk at 155# in the first workout. Representing at the ORIGINAL Nutritionals booth was great. The ON team is progressive and definitely a leading force for real food nutrition. The interview I participated in (with Tiffany Hendrickson & Andrea Ager) was definitely the icing on the cake. I get all giddy inside whenever people ask me about BirthFIT. I love to spread knowledge of my passion.
It is always uplifting to be at a CrossFit event surrounded by the supportive CrossFit community. As a whole, we eat clean, we encourage fitness, and lead fully functional lives. It is definitely not reality though, and I was reminded of that as we walked side by side next to some of the body builders in the aisles of the expo in Phoenix. I encourage all of us in the community to allow our ‘CrossFit lives and selves’ to spill over into other parts of your environments and community. I want us to be infectious and influence people in our communities. Be the leaders for a WELL community.
Look for more updates to come.
