What is your history with CrossFit?
I started CrossFitting in January of 2009 and became a trainer with my level 1 cert only a couple months later. I was the 2009 Oregon Games Champion, finished 8th at regionals last year, and was a member of the 6th place team at Aromas last year - Oregon Crossfit. I've been waiting for this weekend since Aromas last year.  Watching everyone compete, there's nothing that I've wanted more than to share that stage. After a disastrous first WOD at sectionals, I finished the next two 3rd and 4th to bring myself in to a qualifying spot. I'm hungry for this competition.
