When and how did you get started with RCF?  I started at Rushmore Crossfit in January of 2017. I had been doing crossfit for a few years, but I wanted to change my routine.

Occupation: I am a 7th grade ELA teacher at Douglas Middle School.

Age: 45

Favorite WOD: Fight Gone Bad

Favorite Movie: The Devil Wears Prada

Favorite Food: anything sweet

Goals (personal, professional, and CrossFit): Personal: My personal goals are to continue to focus on the good parts of my life and to not worry about things I cannot control.

Professional: My professional goal is to survive another 12 years as a public school teacher.

CrossFit: My crossfit goals are to continue with the sport for as long as I can and to connect 10 double unders. (Ok, maybe just 2)

What time do you usually attend and what’s the best part about working out with that group? During the school year, I’m a 4:30 regular. This summer I’ve been going to the 6:00 a.m. class. The 6:00 a.m. is usually a smaller group than the 4:30, but both groups are fun to work out with.

What’s in your most frequently used emoji tab? My most frequently used Emoji tab is the smiling face with the tongue out.

What’s the first CD you ever bought? I think it was The Counting Crows.

What’s the last thing you searched for on Google? The last thing I searched on Google probably had something to do with shopping.

You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why? I would be ocean blue because I like to just go with the flow.

What is something we don’t know about you? I’m a classic introvert. Give me a good book or movie and a few close friends and I am set.

Advice to new members or someone looking to start CrossFit: Crossfit can seem intimidating, but it really is for everyone. Show-up and don’t cherry pick your workouts. Every time you attend a class, you are improving in some way.
