June 2016

Merry D.

For June 2016, we recognize the hard work and dedication of Merry D. Unofficial box grandma (Goppi as my kids call her)! As the oldest athlete at Gallant she continually inspires other athletes to push their conceived limits. She has had injuries and set backs, but keeps showing up for more. After 4 years of CrossFit, she recently committed to WODing 4 times a week, and just this month she completed full Murph! Merry defies conventional thinking regarding aging and is getting comfortable being uncomfortable. How many 64 year olds do you know can back squat 135#, deadlift 180#, and still rock out solid hand stand holds? So proud of you mom! We know you will keep inspiring us kids.
