Last year, we had a great time and I had fun creating clever costumes:  Lady Gaga (in her meat dress) for me,...

Diary of a Ragnar Virgin:  DC Ragnar 2013 Review

Two weeks ago, I participated in the 2013 DC Ragnar Relay Race.  (Two weeks already? Sheesh, where’d the time go?) If you’ve never heard of Ragnar, it’s a 12 person, 200 mile relay race.  The race began Friday morning, with runner 1 running the first leg, then handing off a baton (slap bracelet) to...

Battle for the Capital – My 2nd Crossfit Competition

Last Friday, I participated in a one night team competition with my husband, Mike. It was the second annual “Battle for the Capital“, hosted by District Crossfit.  We didn’t attend this event last year so I wasn’t sure what to expect — but we were both looking for to a nice date night, Crossfit-style :)....

My One Year Crossfit Anniversary

On November 1, 2011 I took my first foundations class.  On November 3rd, I participated in my first official Crossfit WOD. It’s now a year later, and according to my workout journal, I’ve logged 240 WODs since then.  I thought it would be fun to reflect on the impact Crossfit has made on my...

My First Official 5K and My Country-Style 5K Playlist

This past Saturday, I participated in the Wildcat 5K, in McLean, VA. Although I have done some running as part of my Crossfit workouts, I’ve never considered myself a runner and never really enjoyed distance running (and yes I know a 5k isn’t a very long distance). When I started doing Crossfit, I converted...
