About DokiDara, Crossfit, Real Life, Workout

Yes, yes, I’m SO aware that it’s October 20th. HOWEVER, I did manage to take these stats down on the 10th, so I don’t feel that horribly bad. I do have a LOT of things to talk about though, so I need to get back on the wagon here. This week is my last in […]

A Special PR
About DokiDara, Crossfit, Real Life

While we were sitting around the box after class last week, I casually mentioned to one of the other CFN Girls that I didn’t know how to french braid.

About DokiDara, Crossfit, Derby, Olympic Lifting, Real Life, Workout

Since I came back from my gigantic trip, I’ve felt completely off – my weight is down almost 10 pounds, I hadn’t been weight training with any consistency in about 3 months between work travel and everything else, and I just felt like a complete and total mess. I told all of this to my […]

Crossfit, Derby, Olympic Lifting, Workout
