Featured Athlete: Taren Polk
I am honored to be this months featured athlete. For many years I watched my (much older) sister compete in CrossFit comps and would say with complete confidence “I will NEVER do that.” In July, I finally gave in and found my place at Midcounty CrossFit. I love getting to see my lunch crew everyday (okay… most days) and pushing to be a better, stronger, healthier version of myself. I was recently strongly encouraged (some could say forced) to get out of my comfort zone and do my first competition which showed me that I am far more capable than I give myself credit for. I love seeing little improvements every day and I’m very thankful for the coaches who deal with my ridiculousness and lack of flexibility.
