I remember seeing Laura in Onramp with Zack one Saturday morning. I was working out in the corner and she was there as well, learning. I noticed one thing about her that to this day I just love. Her smile.
Anyone coming into a new situation, especially one as tough and demanding as CrossFit, usually has a look of seriousness on their face or maybe a puzzled look but definitely after the workout, a look of sheer exhaustion and a bit of relief that it’s over! Every time I looked over at Zack teaching Laura a new movement or showing her what her WOD would be that day, I noticed that she did everything with a smile. After the WOD….still smiling!
Over the months that Laura has been at MCCF, we have seen her do some pretty amazing stuff. She has become a very strong athlete putting up big weight on the board every time she lifts. I asked Laura to describe her CrossFit journey and her words were very sincere and quite meaningful…..
“I am so grateful for my friend, Rachel (Green), who got me to join. I am pretty shy with some crazy anxieties so I never would have tried CrossFit without her encouragement.
