KCF Athlete Profile – Ellen
Occupation: Full time mom of 3 boys, SpEd sub at NKSD, Middle School Track Coach, HS Swim Coach, unemployed Personal Trainer, Half Marathon HO, Scout Master, Marathon Expo junkie (I sell shirts).
First CrossFit WOD: Bear Complex (Had to go way back in my notes)
First thought after First CrossFit WOD: I am so out of shape and I really could have used heavier weight. Lame.
Before CrossFit I did: Told people how to exercise. Taught aerobics and believed I was doing the right thing. Before that I was a major couch potato!
Favorite CrossFit exercise: Deadlifts, SDHP
Least favorite CrossFit exercise: Anything that involves wall balls, forward rolls and the coaches telling me I landed with my feet too wide (Like I didn’t notice!).
I love Kitsap CrossFit because: It gets me out of my comfort zone (like off the couch). Challenges me to my greatest potential, which was more than yesterday’s! I have great coaches that tell me I landed with my feet too wide (in a nice way). I’ve made some great friends, and I love you all.
Most surprising accomplishment: Doing a perfect Power Snatch (once, but I did it).
Short Term Goals: Getting my lats and triceps stronger so I can do unassisted pull ups and get up on the rings. Ease back into running, biking & swimming
Long Term Goals: Complete the Goofy at Walt Disney World, and STP in one day, and age in at the Kona Ironman.
Hobbies: besides my kids and husband? Gardening, quilting, novice bee keeping, “chicken farmer”.
Favorite food: Paleo: Anything with chicken, spinach & coconut in it. Non-Paleo: Micro brews.
Freestyle: (share something interesting we haven’t covered) I was once a Hooker… in a city league woman’s rugby team.
