Maddie…more than meets the eye!

We know what Maddie can do in the gym. We’ve seen her pull ups. We watched her Rx the 100 Thrusters the other day. There is no doubt she is an athlete. But, like so many other CFSers there is a lot more to her than one might guess and with her humble personality she sure isn’t going to tell you about it. So I am! Check out this girl’s accomplishments below and how you can help her achieve one more of her goals…

·         Maddie graduated with Honors this spring from Glacier Peak.

·         Maddie completed her CNA last week and got her certificate.

·         She assisted as a Doula to a young women in a 48hr delivery this summer (she need a couple more deliveries to satisfy her Doula requirements to sit for her International Certification).

·         She is working at PRC (pregnancy resource center) helping young, unwed teens and young moms with pregnancy information and decision-making process.  She will be there 2 days a week throughout the fall in preparation for her application to UW Nursing program.

AND

·         Maddie has just been accepted as staff at Mexico Caravan Ministries beginning in January! She will be there for  8 months after she completes her AA in pre-nursing in December from Cascadia Community College. She is seeking financial support to help her off-set costs in Mexico.   She won’t ask – so I thought we should on her behalf. There will be a letter and card posted on the Community Board in the gym with information on how you can help her out. Also, check your email for contact info regarding this issue.

    kept my GHD sets a little shorter than normal to ease back in with the tweaked back. Went mostly well. I’m going to regret those 150 GHD’s! I meant to scale back the rounds but was moving ‘fast’ enough and thought ‘why not’. Tomorrow I’ll remember why not. 🙂

    Good hard WOD, glad for chance to do some 2Pood KBS

  6. Holy Frijoles Maddie!!! It is awesome to hear about someone with such amazing aspirations and even more amazing to know she’s accomplishing them – and right here in our CFS gym 🙂 I’m more than happy to support! Way to go Maddie!

    Round 2- rx’d ish only 7 rep ghdsu’s then switched to abmat situps x 2 (46 reps abmat)
