I remember the day Beth walked through the door of MCCF! It was November 11th and she told me it was her 64th Birthday. She said she likes to take on a new adventure every year and this year, it was CrossFit! I asked her what she did for fitness, she told me about her climb up Mt. Washington, her marathons, her cycling adventures with her husband and her few adventure races. After seeing the extremely impressed look on my face, she said “you know, you just have to keep moving.”We asked Beth to tell us a bit about her fitness journey and what MCCF has done for her. Her story is amazing. Here are Beth’s words…..
“I have always been active, but two years ago, I had surgery during which I had major life threatening blood loss and a full body infection that often takes the lives of even the young and healthy. I was very lucky to survive, but every surgeon, nurse and specialist pointed to my fitness level as the key to my happy outcome. I realized then I was given a second chance and I wanted to make the most of every moment and not only recover, but get stronger, faster, wiser and kinder with every decade I was given.
