My name is Kris. I’m 46 years old, and I’m a CrossFit addict. An unlikely confession for some? Probably not. But for me, totally! I’m not overly competitive. I’m a stay-at-home mom.

Last year the thought never crossed my mind to sign up for the CrossFit Open. Last year the idea would have made me laugh out loud. But that was last year. This year my son Brock said to me, “You’re signing up for the Open, right?” This year I’m thinking it might not be such a ridiculous notion after all.
