How did you get into CrossFit?
I was burned out on distance running, and had been occasionally dropping into weekend community CrossFit classes in Boston. I knew I needed a change in my fitness routine and figured I’d give CrossFit a shot (after lots of peer pressure!) while I took a few months off running. By the time my first Open rolled around a few months later, I was permanently hooked.
