11/22/12: Thankful For My Sister

Today is my sister’s birthday.  Katie AKA Dottie has been my biggest supporter (outside of Erin, or course) since I opened the gym.  If you have ever met my sister you already know that she is one of the kindest, most-caring, most-genuine people you have ever met, and if you have ever seen her workout, you know she doesn’t mess around.  If anyone is looking for strength, inspiration, and determination during a workout, just listen for Dottie, she’ll be grunting as she hurls a 14# med ball 10ft in the air.  Dots, you are the best big sister a littler brother could ever ask for.  Thanks for being an awesome person, an incredible nurse, and a model CrossFitter.  You rock!

A perfect example of why Dots is legit!
