From Doug:

“Ed is awesome. He always has a smile on his face and consistently “hates” whatever WOD we do 🙂 But he shows up religiously and over the last 2 years has gotten better and better. He truly has become a beautiful mover. And at 53 years of age, this is an incredible achievement. His squats are beautiful and his lifts consistent. He’s the kind of athlete I hope to be when I’m his age. I want to move like he does and enjoy it even though I pretend not to. He’s an inspiration to us as coaches.”

Congratulations Ed on being our August Spotlight Athlete.
