WOD Wednesday


This whole week I’m subbing for one of my friends who coaches bootcamp. Although I’ve been substituting for a while I still get stumped whenever I have to program a cardio day.

Inspiration Monday: Camp Rhino


When I moved out to Las Vegas last year, I was convinced that no matter which CrossFit box I ended up at, it would become my home. I would have a built-in network of friends and it would be a seamless transition. It would take 6 months before I found my home and a year before I felt like I…

London Bridge…in Arizona.


Hello! Two weekends ago I had a friend in town and she graciously accompanied me on a two and a half hour road trip from Las Vegas to Lake Havasu in Arizona. Everything I have ever known about Lake Havasu is that it’s a party lake. Everyone has a house boat or pontoon boat and they drink their days away.…

Best of 2016?


Hello! Sorry about the delay. Last week was a bit hectic, but that’s life isn’t. I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately. Everyone has their “best places to visit in 2016”.
