In this episode, Dee shares how CrossFit helped her get mentally and physically stronger after her mother’s death.
Dee: “Suck It Up and Drive On.”
Dee had been a cardio fanatic all her life, but when her mother passed away in 2013, she needed something different to distract her and help her process the loss.
So she joined CrossFit Hale, despite never having picked up a weight before.
“The first time you told me to jump on a box I looked at you like, ‘What?!’” she said to Coach Jay.
She’s faced many more challenges since then, from her first Murph to competing in the 2019 NorCal Masters competition, and says she’s only gotten better for it.
“It was hard but it set off a trigger, I took it as a challenge,” she said of her first impression of CrossFit. “This is different and it’s difficult, but I want to learn how to do it.”
In this episode, you will learn:
- How embracing difficult things has made Dee better.
- How CrossFit has helped her improve her mental health and focus.
- The best piece of advice she’s ever received: “Suck it up and drive on.”
