Today's Q and A is with Sheila Barden. All around Bad Ass from the North East. Her Crossfit journey began in 2011 and she has since been to the North East Regionals in 2012, 2013, and 2014. She earned the 2nd place spot in 2014 and headed to Carson for the Games. She can do 40 unbroken pull ups, deadlift 285#, and is gaining strength daily. Can't wait to see what the next year brings! Congrats Sheila!

My husband, Jake. He was my first "sponsor" and my biggest support system.
