Black Sheep Athletics

It’s been an insanely promising start to the year over here in Berlin and this week, things got even better! I am so excited to announce Black Sheep Athletics as one of my new sponsors for 2017! When I moved to Berlin I was pleasantly surprised  by the popularity of Crossfit within the city.  Countless boxes appear […]

2016 – injuries, moving countries, and the times I wanted to quit.

It’s no secret that this year has been more challenging than the first two I had spent abroad.  But when everything happens in so many small, unconnected incidences, it’s quite confronting when someone forces you to look back at the challenges you’ve faced.

2014 – what a year!!!

After the craziest two months I’ve had in a long while, I am finally getting the opportunity to sit down and reflect on the year just passed.  While this is long overdue, it’s nice to look back on the year just passed and just in time for my first fight for 2015. On January 6, […]
