In the past month, I think it is safe to say that if you have not seen Sandi at MCCF, at least a few times a week then YOU have not been coming! She has come back with a vengeance and some goals and we all noticed how insanely hard she has been working and that is why Sandi Tanasi is our April Athlete of the Month!
I asked her to tell us a bit about her fitness journey and she spoke of her upbringing and how her parents came over from Greece in 1974 and worked hard to chase the American Dream, but fitness was never really a part of their regular life. She said she had good genetics and was blessed with a great metabolism and did do gymnastics and distance running when she was younger. But then…. life started to happen (marriage, kids, full time job) and things started to slow down in the way of metabolism. (A part of life many of us can relate to)!
Sandi was brought to MCCF by her good friend Michelle Michaud and the rest…..I’ll let her tell you……
“Michelle and I have been friends for almost 30 years and when she moved to Old Saybrook, she found MCCF (she used to do crossfit in Wallingford). She would talk about MCCF and how awesome the community was and how invigorating she felt after a “WOD”. But Michelle is very competitive and I am not…..I thought she was crazy!
