  4. I have to say I am a little stunned by this. First of all I think it’s the first time I’ve ever been called an athlete. I think there are so many other people who are more worthy. Thanks for the honor. I also have to say my wife is getting a charge out of this. Crossfit has definitely been a game changer for me. Crossfit has definitely been the most effective fitness routine I’ve ever done. It is not without its cost though. I have nicely scabbed shins from deadlifts, a big lump on my forehead that makes me look like a Klingon from nailing my head with the bar while doing snatches and a fine set of calluses from, well dang near everything else. I could care less though because it is one of the few places I don’t have to think and just do. It’s a great stress reliever. So thanks again Chris, Annie, Cody, Casey and all the other crossfitters in Sioux Falls who help push me by kicking my ass every workout.
