Yesterday I had the pleasure of giving Ellie, Pancho & a couple kiddos a tour of our new fire station. It was so nice of them to come visit and check out my "second" home. The kids had a great time! It's always fun having friends over to the station. Ellie, thanks again for the salad and cookies. The guys devoured the cookies before I came back upstairs! They were very happy :)
It's really nice that firefighting and CrossFit go hand in hand. Obviously it's very important for firefighters to stay in shape. However, it's one thing to run and lift weights, and a totally different thing to do CrossFit. CrossFit has gotten me in much better shape for the job. The workouts are more functional, fun and a lot shorter! :) The thing that's most important to me though, is that CrossFit has gotten me in better shape for LIVING. I've seen improvements in all aspects of my life. I'm very fortunate to be a firefighter and I'm even more fortunate to be a firefighter who does CrossFit!!!
