Box Brief
It’s a little late but we just wanted to celebrate her for more than a month…
Congrats to the January Member of the Month Barbara! With honorable mention to her dogs Kai and Bear!

Let’s learn more about her!

  1. When did you start Crossfit and how did you end up at Crossfit New England?

About 5 or 6 year ago. I was running a marathon and trying to combine both. Came to CFNE 8 months ago terrified and it took me 1 month to actually come to ask for info. I was out of shape unmotivated and scared not to be at the level of such a well known gym. 

  1. What’s are you most proud of?

Coming to the USA and becoming a US citizen. It’s been  hard work. I came to the USA 20 years ago, with a backpack, no English,  money, or job. Today I appreciate every little thing I have. I ran 15 marathons, qualified 6 times for Boston with a 3:20 PR, won a 5k, and placed 3rd on a half marathon and MT. Washington road race. Today I can’t run for my life but back then I couldn’t do a single air squat.

  1. What’s the last thing you searched for on Google?

How to stream narconovelas and telenovelas from Mexico and Colombia. I LOVE NOVELAS. 

  1. If your dogs were to describe you, what would each of them say?

LOL- Now I’m so curious! Probably the same a 6y/o with no manners, ungrateful, spoiled brat would say of his devoted mother. 

  1. What superpower would you want to possess? 

I’d like to be able to adjust the length of my legs, for rowing, bike and wall balls, the same way we adjust the bikes.. Also I’d like to translate dog barking to human words. I think my dogs swear at me most of the time.  

  1. What was the most important lesson you have had to learn?

That goals and plans are important but we have only today. If you want to get strong today do a little towards that, if you miss your mom/dad.. call and say I miss you. Don’t hold I love you’s, thank you’s and please. If you want a dog… go get it today and CALL ME IMMEDIATELY.

  1. Share a CFNE memory?

When Kerri Rose came to me to give me a hug and told me “Hey (she didn’t know my name), you have a hole in your pants right between your butt.” I knew then she was the one for me.

  1. Is there something you would like us to know?

Yes. When I say Jeti I mean Yeti and when I say rug I mean Rogue. Thanks for your patience. 

Thanks to CFNE for this wonderful 8 months, for my SCC Jeti ( Yeti) and for the MoM award. You have changed my life and I can’t thank you enough the 9:30 for keeping me in shape and happy!
