10. Anything else you want to add about CFV, CrossFit, or yourself?
This is my 5th Fit-iversary with CFV. You have pushed me further than I thought I could go, and shown me that I can reach my physical goals if my mind wants it bad enough. You taught me to be patient and consistent, and that the work will pay off…and it has! Thank you for getting me to stick with the program in spite of my crazy, busy schedule. I am thrilled with how I look and feel, and I owe it all to you!
