The Tire Flip

Before I started working out, I used to watch other people work out. I used to dream of being fit, which at that time meant wearing spandex and running 8-minute miles. Oh and not sweating, because fit people don’t sweat. I always talked myself out of trying things, because I didn’t want to be uncomfortable.


Last night I flipped a 200-lb tire ten times. Then I did it twice more so Neil could capture it with his phone. Sure, part of my motivation was a little e-bragging, but most of it was for myself. I haven’t really “seen” myself since we started CrossFit, and I thought a little video capture might give me a glimpse of the fit person I always dreamed of being.

It did. I did it.

In spandex. While sweating.

That 400-lb tire better look out!


  • Dang, girl! You make it look so easy! 🙂

    I am impressed! I, too, have always wanted to be fit. I am between jobs at the moment (and student teaching), so crossfit is out of the picture. But I’ve been running every other day and slowly working myself to the point where I think I can start something like crossfit. You’re a great inspiration! My main goal is to be fit before I have kids so that I can be a good role model for them.

      I totally understand, when I was in grad school, extra workouts were out of the question! I’m definitely trying to set myself up for a sustainable lifestyle whether it be kids or more aggressive fitness goals.
