Meet the Trainers of CrossFit Marion

I have been going to CrossFit for 3 weeks now and I'm totally addicted! I have been committed to a healthier lifestyle for over 4 months now. I have lost 20 pounds and feel great! So when my friend Mandy asked me to go with her, it was a no brainer.

Fortunately for me, I had been doing some cardio and strength training prior to going, otherwise I'm pretty sure I would have died. I'm now going 4-5 times a week and couldn't be any happier with the results, not to mention my elevated mood and self-esteem! This past Saturday, CrossFit Marion hosted their first 5K. And in true CrossFit fashion, it was actually more like a 6K (although no one knew this prior to running). It was approximately 3.7 miles, which I finished in 45 minutes. Now that by no means is a stellar performance, but it was my first 5K and my goal was to just finish...and that I did! Bronson even ran finishing overall 9th place in 28 minutes.

So here are the headshots and group shot I took for the trainers Saturday to celebrate the Grand Opening and first 5K celebration! The last pic is of me and the girls after our almost 4 mile run finish! For more information regarding CrossFit Marion you can visit them on facebook or their website: CrossFit Marion

That's awesome! My AdvoCare coach owns a Crossfit box. It's tough-- hurts so good! :) Just had baby 4 and can't wait to get try again.
