My CrossFit Friends: Katie

Posted: March 8, 2013 in CrossFit Friends, CrossFit Tulsa

Today, I am profiling another one of my CrossFit friends: Katie Rodgers. I’m pretty sure that if Katie didn’t need to work, she would spend all of her time in the gym. With only one and a half years of CrossFit experience under her belt, she’ll be one to watch in the future. She can go fast and move a lot of weight. She loves to run, but I see her on the erg from time to time. I’ll get her converted to a 50/50 rower/runner soon enough.

Best advice for a WOD:
Strategize! Don’t sacrifice form for time and don’t cheat yourself, do each rep like you are being judged.

Is Tequila a meal? Just kidding, probably a big juicy cheese burger.

Favorite girl WOD:
A tie between Kelly and Nancy

Thoughts on Rowing as part of a well-rounded CrossFitter skill?
Very important. I am not the best rower, but I am getting better. Every competition I have been in there has been an emphasis on rowing, so it is very important!
