I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) on June 9, 2010. While I grappled with this diagnosis and what it meant for my future, I found myself questioning how to remain active. For the next almost 3 years, my only form of exercise would be walking my dogs and going on an occasional run. In March of 2013, I found CrossFit APx. It saved me in more ways than just physical fitness. I rediscovered what it was like to make goals and achieve them and I understood the only competition there was against myself. In September after unbelievable gains, I had a small set-back. While at CrossFit, I stepped down from a small box and sprained my ankle so badly that I fractured the 5th metatarsal. Two weeks into my injury, I found my way back to the box. I had to scale everything; at one point I was using a skateboard in order to row. To cope with my injury, I decided to set a new goal. By the end of the year I would be able to perform a ring muscle-up. Every day I was at the box, I either arrived early or stayed late to work on my strength and progression. After 7 weeks in a cast, I was closer than ever to achieving this goal. 3 weeks after coming out of my cast, I finally achieved my first ring muscle-up! I was even able to do another one right after my first. Although it will still be a few more months before I can run and jump again, without my ankle/foot injury I may have never tasted the victory and reward of my first ring muscle-up; not to mention I was able to master kipping pull-ups and left-leg pistols!

It’s that time of year and once again our APx community will be collecting toys for the annual Toys for Tots program.
