How has training at Elite helped you become the person you were meant to be?

Training at Elite has helped me connect with others who push me to be better.

What adventures, events, trips, races do you have planned?
I would love to compete in some local competitions in the future, but I don't have anything planned right now.

What would you do and where would you go if time / money were not object? 
If money were no object, I would absolutely love to tour Ireland and New Zealand. I would also live in a tree house and sleep in a hammock every night.

Goals
Fitness

My fitness goals are mostly the legacy I want to leave to my children. (And maybe get double unders.  Or not.) The thing we are trying to impart onto our children (Aiden 17, Isaac 11, Emy 9) is that being fit, healthy, and strong are the only truly important things when it comes to our bodies. And those three things look differently on each person, so do what is best for your body.  I want to continue to be able to say "No thanks, I've got it," when people ask "Do you need help out with that?" Functional fitness, y'all!

Professional

I dunno, I could definitely be a better mother and wife.... Unless my husband finally gets to open that bike shop/coffee joint/brewery, I don't think I will be going back to work full time.  (In a former life I was a mental heath social worker.  Good times.)


Personal

I just want to live each day doing the best I can on that day.  Somedays that might look like hitting it hard at the gym, and eating well, and other days that might look like drinking whiskey, eating tacos, and laughing with friends.

Something that most people don’t know about me:

Let's see, people might not know that I have a strange addiction to Hannibal Lecter.  I "get" him.  Mwahahahahahaha!!!  But really, anyone who has spent any length of time with me knows just about everything about who I am.  I am an open book and tend to make some people uncomfortable with my extroversion.  (But sometimes I hate people and go full introvert.)
