Until this trip, I had no idea how strong I was getting. I can’t wait to get back there! I just returned from Argentina, where I hiked 30 miles in the Andes. I really have to thank CrossFit City Limits for giving me the endurance and strength to complete it–it wasn’t easy. I came to the conclusion on that hike that I really want to be fit enough to continue active traveling well into the future (I guess this would be my training purpose). While I have typically hated the Olympic weightlifting part of CrossFit, since hauling a loaded backpack for days, I have a new appreciation for how important muscle strength is and have renewed my goal to be able to do a pull up in 2016–strict or kipped!
