“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams
Perhaps you saw this on the CF Whiteboard Notes from September 30th, but if not Kelly R. had this to say:
“Last day of month, my official last day at gym. Wod 645! 645x Lisa & George put up w me. I have learned something from every single one of you guys in the gym!! i am really just left without words. The best words to sum it all up is: Thank you!!! Thank you ALL! For every thing!!”
For those of you who have been around a while you know Kelly has been one of the more influential athletes in the gym. Kelly inspired many of the other athletes to do extra work after regular sessions such as sled pulls, Tire Flipping and Farmer’s Walk. The now famous Kelly Walk was started by Kelly and many others have at least tried it. The Kelly Walk is putting the backpack on and walking a mile. One day, while on the Kelly Walk, Kelly placed the backpack on the ground near the half mile mark and helped a man push his stalled car into a gas station. The man shook her hand, Kelly put the backpack on an finished her walk. That’s Kelly.
Before a competition last year Kelly discovered that one of our athletes wasn’t able to come up with the competition entry fee. Kelly rounded up some of our athletes and they all chipped in to pay for the other athlete. That’s Kelly.
During our Holiday parties it was Kelly who organized the giving of gifts to the coaches. She did the same for other athletes or coaches during birthdays and other occasions. That’s Kelly.
Kelly R. joined CrossFit Suffolk/Spartan Performance in June 2013 and as she stated, did 645 workouts with us in a little over 2 years. Kelly improved tremendously as an athlete, but she also inspired many others. So to Kelly we say Thank You for being an instrumental part of our community and good luck on your journey to be strong!
