18.3 was the toughest workout I have ever done. Not physically, but mentally. ⠀

When Coach Barry told me there was not going to be anymore scaling for the pull ups I already felt defeated. I felt angry. Pull ups have been the movement I’ve put on the back burner. Overhead Squat at the bar? Easy. Singles? Done. Dumbbell Snatch? Awesome. ⠀

But I didn’t make it past the pull ups. I didn’t even come close to achieving the first one. I fought the tears that kept stinging at my eyes with every failed attempt in front of the whole crowd for 11 minutes. I attempted a pull up 75 times. ⠀

It’s been a few days now and God has really been working on my heart and my abundance of pride. In the end it’s just a workout, I’m spending my eternity in Heaven and that’s what matters. ⠀

But with the fire I have after that defeat, you can bet I’ll have pull-ups by the 2019 Open. Thank you to every person @crossfitportroyalsound for encouraging me every step of the way and not letting me take the easy way out. And thank you to God, for giving me strong hands that are already capable of partaking in the greatest work of all: making disciples.

Can I just give a huge thank you to the 150+ people who took time out of their day to text, post, call or stop by and tell me happy birthday? Thank you to each and every one of you for making a girl feel so loved! ⠀

If you would have told me 2 years ago I would be spending my 23rd birthday in a CrossFit competition I would have laughed and said you’re crazy. Thank you to all my teammates and coaches who came out announcement night to cheer me and the others on. ⠀

Here I am, #ImInTheOpen #1801Done #JordanYear

Cameron and I had an awesome weekend getting away to Table Rock State Park! 10+miles of hiking and we are ready for some hot showers!

When your 8am gets cancelled so you bring a friend to CrossFit 🤗 thanks for coming with me Mal! ❤️

Right on the edge of everything can feel like a pretty scary place. But just on the other side of comfort comes total dependency on the Lord and His faithfulness.

The rainy weather today has me missing last weekends sunshine


My heart felt like it was going to explode out of my chest at the 8:30am service! So thankful for the many blessings God has laid here. #lovingjesuschanginglives #grandopening

Even when it hurts just keep moving. Happy 1 year @crossfitportroyalsound ❤️

Snowed in and it’s pretty great!

Happy New Year!

Cammie boy caught my good side

My cup runneth over. I can’t put to words the overwhelming joy I have getting to spend Christmas with the ones who matter most to me!
