For many previous and current Awesomes, the path has been consistent - putting in hard work and being a positive force in the UB community. For some, it starts out like this in an expanded time line: "I want to get fit... Ok, I want to learn how to do that... (Scanning the board) Who's score is that? I want to beat that... No, I don't want to compete, I just enjoy what I do... Ok, maybe one competition...."
Sound familiar? It sure is for Hayley - she walked through UB's doors in the beginning just wanting to get better. Improvement seen? She went from chasing others on the board to now being the one scanned by others while grabbing an Awesome along the way. She wasn't happy with her old FGB score in 2012 and decided to PR the WOD by 100 reps last year. Level 2 class qualification? Check that off the list. For the longest time, she avoided entering any non-UB competitions. She finally relented this year and entered the Moxie Throwdown with one of two UB teams. And despite her apprehension, she had a blast. Cherry on top: She placed 2nd at the Ultimate Lift Off and PR'd almost all her lifts.
Fast forward to today, Hayley continues to push herself to get each elusive carrot. What's next? Only Hayley will know. But, gurrl, look how far you've come!
