What is your athletic background?
I played tennis from when I was about 8, and was on the Air Force Academy tennis team (D1) until my Junior year (graduated in ‘05). I also played hockey and did some rock climbing when I was in middle and high school, but never very seriously. After I dropped tennis, I spent most of my free time at globo gyms, doing whatever workouts my friends and Muscle & Fitness Magazine suggested, getting generally frustrated when I hit plateau after plateau. After I got married, had a daughter, and started in Law School, I realized I had no time for globo gym workouts, so my wife and I visited a CrossFit gym down the street and were immediately hooked.
What is your history with CrossFit?
My wife and I started CF in October of 2008. I was skeptical of the whole thing and hedged my attendance on the idea that I’d go back to regular gyms after a month or so. Like so many people, my first WOD was Fran, and I was immediately hooked. It hurt like hell, but I loved it. After a few months, my coach, Rudy Nielsen, thought I was ready to compete in the Virginia Beach qualifier. I went and had a great time, but completely wrecked myself, tore my hands to shreds, and ended up somewhere in the 20s… I wasn’t very happy with my performance. The past year I’ve just been following Rudy’s programming, coming in whenever I can and competing in a few regional CrossFit events to get experience. I’ve gotten consistently stronger and more excited about his training in general. Team Outlaw has become like family, and the programming there paid off for me and the 6 other individuals on the team who qualified at our Sectionals. We can’t wait for Regionals.
What is unique about you as an individual or athlete?
As I said before, I don’t have very much free time, so the CF programming method is perfect for me. I work full time as a Special Agent in the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, and I am currently stationed at Andrews AFB, MD. I am in my second year in the part-time program at Georgetown University Law Center in downtown DC, where I attend classes five nights a week. This means my schedule generally consists of a 6am WOD, work, school, home at 8:30 or 9pm, dinner, homework, and bed by 11:30 or 12.  My wife, Gina, and I have a 2-and-a-half year old daughter, Camryn. Both of them have been to every one of my competitions, and are incredibly supportive. Gina has even resolved to compete in Sectionals next year.

I don't like this guy. He never let's me beat him in any wods and he is always so happy. One time I saw him perform poorly - one time.

Yeah, I don't like this guy either. He's not very nice.... He loves to do so well on WODs that it makes you feel inferior.

I don't know what you guys are talking about. Jason is just a normal guy. Perhaps y'all just need to "suck less."

Rock on Jason, and Team Outlaw!

Wow! What an awesome surprise it was to open up the Games website and see this posted! Looks like you're doing really well and your Regionals are next weekend just like mine. I'm stationed at Ramstein and qualified for the European Regionals next weekend in Sweden. Best of luck to you J, go kill it this weekend!
