If you are a regular, then you know the effervescent Katie Cunningham.
The first day she came to the gym, I was taken my her sweet smile and sparkling eyes. But underneath that sweet feminine exterior is a very strong woman. You must be on your guard for her smile, because it happens most when she is about to kick your butt on the next Skills training or WOD.
Katie is also a quick study. Within a few weeks at CF2a, she was lifting some serious weight. She is quiet and unassuming, but she is tenacious.
During today’s skill session, she decided that today was the day that she would execute her first Handstand. She approached the wall, she had a few false starts, and within five minutes she was up. I ran to get my camera and caught a bunch of photos of her solo and then joined by Micah. Once she got the hang of getting on the wall, she just kept doing them.
In fact, she was so good at getting back up on the wall, not only did I have time to run across the gym to get my camera, but Dan also had time to get his, so I could get a picture of him getting a picture.
I’m proud of you Katie. Perhaps someday you can show me how to do them too.
