My 1st Crossfit Competition - Crossfit Unyielding to Cancer

My 1st Crossfit Competition - Crossfit Unyielding to Cancer

Last month, I entered my first Crossfit competition with my team, OxStrength. The competition was a charity event that raised funds for local families suffering from cancer. As cliche as it sounds, Crossfit/Fitness has changed my life in so many ways. It's made me stronger mentally as well as physically, Its made me appreciate patience, and that doing the work will reap the rewards if you're dedicated enough. In the balancing act of life, its hard to make time for self care, but its so critically important. I'll probably write more in the coming months about how I "make time for it all" but for now, here's some photos of some awesome people lifting weights :)
