The Barbells for Boobs event was a huge success. I surpassed my fundraising goal; thanks to my many friends and family for helping me make a difference.
And I was 10 seconds shy of completing my “Grace” goal. I took 4:10 instead of under 4 min. Still really pleased since it’s been quite awhile since I’ve thrown that much weight around consecutively 30 times. When I was struggling to get that weight overhead and I had jiggly arms, I thought of the brave battle my Aunt committed to and won. Definitely easier to push through that way!
I had the best cheerleading section, too.
What inspires you to push harder?
More than 20 years ago, my Aunt Mary “Mimi” was diagnosed with breast cancer. With the support of her family and friends, she beat it and has had a successful remission. Not everyone is as lucky.

To honor her brave fight and the fight of so many women and men, I’m raising money for early detection education and participating in the CrossFit Barbells for Boobs WOD (Workout of the Day) on Oct. 17 at Back Alley CrossFit. The WOD is called “Grace,” which is 30 clean and jerks for time. My attempted weight and time will be announced this week.
Please help me support Barbells for Boobs by making a donation through my page. Even a small donation will help me achieve my goal. The process is fast, easy, and secure. If you donate and would like your donation to honor someone, I’ll gladly temporarily tattoo their name or favorite saying on my legs or arms … so let’s get my skin covered!
Thanks so much for your support.
