Words to live by?
“Rank does not confer privilege or give power.  It imposes responsibility.”


What is your fitness background?
Flag football, Softball, basketball, volleyball, 5 k, 10 k, 15 k, Marathons and 1/2 Marathon.  Played sports since JR high.

How long have you been CrossFitting?
November 2010, took a year off after my neck surgery in February 2012. Can’t keep me down..

What’s your favorite part of CrossFit Austin?
The comradery, no one gets left behind on a WOD. Since retiring from the Army I’ve missed the comradery of my Army brothers and sisters. CrossFit Austin has filled that void.

What are your training goals?
Due to my neck injury I have nerve damage in my hands and the pain prevents me from lifting heavy,  but I don’t let the pain keep me from doing what I love to do. So with that said my training goal is to keep my body fit for as long as I’m able to.

Favorite sport or activity?

Recent adventure you’re planning?
Vacation trip back to Hawaii.

Tell us something we don’t know about you…
In 2003 they discovered a mass in my right lung so I  had the 3rd lobe of my right lung removed. Y’all should all feel bad when I pass you up on our running WOD’s, just kidding. Also, I’m  a Disable Veteran, Retired Army, 1SG, 27 years of services.  HOOAH!!

Longhorns or Aggies?
Breath, eat and bleed Burnt Orange  

Leave the fine folks of CrossFit Austin with some parting words…
Thank you CFA coaches for always scaling the WOD for my medical needs, but still making the WOD fun and challenging.   I may not be able to lift heavy or ever be a part of the CF games, but I do feel like a  part of CFA family and with that I could never go back to a gym.   It’s been a privilege meeting and working out with great people.   I feel honored to be selected CFA  Athlete of the Month.  CROSSFIT PROUD!!!
