What is your training and competition background? Started CrossFitting on 29 March 2009 - my epiphany day. 20 years of triathlon - yes I have been base-building for decades!
How long have you been doing CrossFit? 10 months and 6 days.
How did you learn about CrossFit? Google of course
What do you enjoy most about this style of training? Without a doubt, it's the people. And then an extremely close second (pretty much a tie for first) is when all the pain goes numb and you make that decision to keep going. Even if you have 50 squats to go, just do one more and then it's only 49.
What is your favorite Benchmark workout(s)? Jackie and Christine
What movement would you love to see in the Sectional workouts? Deadlifts are definitely my favourite, but anything that shows a weakness is just as much welcomed so I can learn what I need to train for to fill in the gaps in 2010.
What do you hope to achieve by competing at the Sectionals? I know what movements I like but I want to get all the things that are in my "out of my comfort zone", into my comfort zone.
