1. Tell us a little bit about you and your family:
I grew up in Prattville. I have an older brother who used to make me ride in the back of his truck, even if it was raining.
I have been married to my wonderful husband since 2009. We met for the first time while I was cleaning his aunts house. We have an awesome son, Wyatt, who joins me most days at the gym.

2. Occupation:
I am an ER nurse.

3. Hobbies and interests:
I enjoy reading, sleeping, being active, and spending time with my family and friends.

4. How long have you been Crossfitting:
I have been crossfitting for almost 2 years.

5. What’s your favorite CF movement/least favorite CF movement:
My favorite CF movement is thrusters.
My least favorite is rope climbs.
***So, I’m guessing you had a love hate relationship with Tuesday’s WOD. Ha

6. What were your first thoughts after you complete your first CF workout:
” I don’t think I’m going to be able to drive home safely.”

7. Tell us something we don’t know about you:

8. What are you most proud of regarding your CF journey:
Being able to perform movements and getting PRs. Before starting crossfit, I tried to be a cardio junky. Now I lift, can climb a rope, kip a pull-up and HSPU and so much more

Fill in the blank
I like: laughing

Friday Night Lights Recap 15.1

→ March 1, 2015

15.1 Greg Becca Misty Knee RaisesWOW, that was exciting. Well I think the kickoff went great and I am still living off the high from Friday night. I think it may very well carry me until next Friday. I cannot say enough wonderful things about FNL. This is definitely a keeper. We had a packed house, full of energy, constant excitement and encouragement. I loved every minute of it.

It was a room full of experienced Open athletes and beginner Open athletes. Some of you have only been doing CF a few months and are already jumping into the competition aspect of CrossFit fast, I love it! Some of you were much more reserved and “not so sure about this Leigh”, well I hope after one night that you’re SOLD OUT! I know I am.

I want to take a minute let you all know how incredibly proud I am of each and every one of you. This is one of the most amazing times during the entire year for our gym, it will be one of the most community building times for us all year. Take the time to get to know others from different classes and have FUN. I am inspired by each of you, I hope you all know that. Your hard work all year is paying off now and will continue to do so for the next four weeks…I am pumped about that.

I wanted to take the time to list a few of the PR’s from 15.1:

Daniel hit a 205# Clean
Jon G hit a 205# Clean
Mandy hit a 100# Clean
Becca hit a 120# C&J
Jamie (Spicy D) hit a 150# C&J
Jen McGriff hit a 105# Clean
Nikki got 43 T2B

Congrats to all of you and everyone else that PR’d and I just haven’t heard about it yet.

I also want to thank Eric Savage once again for the great photos he captured Friday evening. You can follow him on IG @morethanwods and on FB at More Than Wods. Please thank him if you get a chance.

I would also like to say thank you to everyone that helped by judging, without that we might have been there all night and it wouldn’t have been the same. You guys were amazing and so encouraging…yes, I know we are not supposed to do that, but I am actually one of those people that simply has a hard time with that…it is what CFA is…we encourage!! And you guys are the BEST at it, so thank you!

Now don’t forget FNL competitors you have weekly challenges to participate in…so keep working this week! I cannot wait to see what 15.2 has in store for us.
