Minimalist. Kinda.
Minimalist. Kinda.
March 25, 2014

I try to believe I’m a true minimalist. In college, I got to spend a summer in Maui. I came home (home was an apartment in San Diego, shared with multiple girls) and swore to myself that I would be able to fit everything I owned in my VW Jetta, bike on top. I wanted nothing more!

THE OPEN 2015

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.
