Michelle

I truly don't even know where to begin.

I have done every challenge of yours since January 2014. Not every time did I come out of it with a perfect score, in fact, other than this challenge, only one other time did I have a perfect score. However, I enjoy the challenges for way more than the score board. Leading up to the challenge I hit a very low point. I had just recently moved, switched jobs, I was sick for a solid 2 weeks, and I was traveling all in the same month. I was so incredibly excited the closer 2/22 got. Not only are my shoulders large and in charge, I'm not having any stomach discomforts.. BUT my face is healing! I was so incredibly embarrassed and disgusted with my face for weeks, and today I feel incredible about my skin and proud of myself. 

Other than all the physical changes and all the things I'm sure you already knew would happen I really, from the bottom of my heart wanted to thank you for changing my life. Because of your challenges, last September I joined my first crossfit box. I looked around for a little while, because I was clearly intimidated and nervous.  (burpees and a dumbbell snatches were much less intimidating in my bedroom) however, I have found a new home, and a new love at Crossfit 858. Now, I am so excited and proud to share with you... I am competing in my very first crossfit open! I'm getting emotional just writing to you about it. I've never felt like this about myself. I have felt proud and excited for so many other people in my life and for the first time in my life I'm accomplishing things I never would of even fathomed before. This has been a year and 3 month long journey for me, that YOU, Emily Schromm, helped start for me. I might be my own superhero, but you Ms. Emily are my inspiration. You have truly given me a new life.
