How were you introduced to Crossfit?
XX had taken a couple classes and I asked him what it was.  He said,” It’s like gymnastics moves, Olympic Lifting, a lot of ballistic movements.  It’s a lot of different stuff and it’s really hard”.
I was like, “Lifting weights?  Will I get big muscles?”  He said, “You’ll be fine.”

Favorite WOD/lift:
The clean and jerk.  I like any wod with pullups.  I like to do handstands too.

I have always wanted to
Travel around the world.  Win a contest where I would get a free home makeover or backyard makeover or win a free wedding!  I also want to be the voice of a cartoon character.

1 word people use to describe me:
cartoony, prepubescent…

Outside of the gym I like to
play ultimate frisbee, snowboard, golf when i can, eat at restaurants and write reviews on my blog, play Rockband, karaoke, shop online for bargains, making things by being crafty, trying anything new.  Unlike XX, I do enjoy nature.

Something nobody knows about me or would be surprised to know about me:
I attempted pole vaulting in high school.  That’s where I learned the term penultimate.

Also, in the 5th grade when the teacher left the room for 2 minutes a classmate was being really loud.  So I grabbed the back of his shirt and pushed him because he wouldn’t be quiet.  He then fell over his chair and fell onto the ground.   He told on me and I had to sit out recess that day.  It was a really weird day and one I will never forget.

Favorite physical activity outside of Crossfit:
playing ultimate frisbee.

Favorite place to eat in Portland:
Podnah’s on Tuesdays for the $20 Rack of rib special and pretty much any Korean BBQ restaurant.

Song that gets me pumped up for a workout:
Right now I like that song 1901 by Phoenix. But I like anything upbeat like Lady Gaga!  I’m not into heavy hardcore metal with shouting and growling.  I think it stresses me out.

Proudest accomplishment:
Moving to Portland by myself and not knowing anyone here. Oh yes, and getting my muscle up.
