CrossFit Open Workout 16.5 is…

After CrossFit Open Workout 16.5 is done, the Open is…OVER! I still can’t believe the 2016 CrossFit Open is over! This year felt like it went by so fast. Maybe it’s just having a toddler and time feeling like a blur in general, but I remember it feeling much longer before. It was by far […]

CrossFit Open Workout 16.4 is…

Oh my goodness, sorry guys, got a little backlogged last week with my courses at work going live. I always start like, 5 blog posts, and typically 1-2 get finished, and that just hasn’t happened the past few weeks. We’re in the middle of beta-testing a new process that I hope won’t leave my day […]

CrossFit Open Workout 16.3 is…

So how did 16.2 go? So after my post last week about not taking the CrossFit Open too seriously, I redid my first Open workout this past week. To be fair, I probably wouldn’t have had it been a longer workout, but knowing it would only be about 8 minutes made it seem doable. So…what […]

CrossFit Open Workout 16.2 is…

I’m back! It’s been a busy week all around, so I apologize for falling off a bit. Neil and KK caught a cold from the indoor swimming pool (grr!) and we spent all of Monday completing the first half of our website redesign (!!). Needless to say, this week has felt a lot like trying […]

CrossFit Open Workout 16.1 is…

2014 Open…15 weeks pregnant. Two years ago I was pregnant during the CrossFit Open. Last year I was so overwhelmed as a new parent that I just couldn’t think past surviving the workouts. But since I have a few more brain cells to play with this year, I definitely want to add a little bit […]

2016 CrossFit Open thoughts

So my good friend and coach Nate is striving to write more every day, and I’ve been really been inspired by his posts about the things he encounters and learns in everyday life… …and since the 2016 CrossFit open starts in just a few days, I thought I’d do a short post “Nate-style” about my […]

What worked for me in 2015

So here is my list of things (both significant and somewhat funny) that worked for me in 2015…

Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

Happy Friday! I think we’re about 90% done with Christmas shopping. I almost have all the cards out as well. Things are so much easier than they were last year, and it’s been a lot more fun. KK loves Christmas movies and musicals and so every night it’s been fun to cuddle up on the […]

CrossFit Training Update

After writing my last post, things are really coming together, especially in the last month. It feels like it’s all come on really fast, and I’m sure it’s because I had a nearly two-year hiatus from active training because of pregnancy and my wrist injury. Since it’s been a bit, how about a new CrossFit […]


I can’t believe Thanksgiving is already here! I love short work weeks. Neil and I were off work all today (belated 9-year anniversary date) and tomorrow begins a several days of rotating shifts of eating and lounging. We are splitting time between both our families — so double food and relaxation. Probably should try to […]
