Athlete Profile: Cherie

By Holley | In Athlete Profiles | on September 13, 2012

Happy Birthday Cherie!!! Her good friend Laura wrote her a birthday post!

 

Cherie may be one of the newer members of the Intrepid family, but she is no stranger to CrossFit. She started a couple of years back at a neighboring CF gym and cross-fitted her way over to us. YAY for us!!! She’s already competed in a  couple of NLI competitions and recently was part of team Hors d’oeuvres at the Summer Shakedown team competition. For those who know Cherie at the gym, you know that she kicks butt athletically. I have been lucky to know her outside of the gym as a co-worker/teammate, and as a friend and she kicks ass in all capacities. I also asked her husband Michael (who made an appearance at Intrepid for the Murph WOD and was never to be seen again) to add to this post. Here are some fun facts and examples of how Cherie holds a track record of being awesome at everything she does.

1. Tracking back to High School, Cherie was captain of her high school cheer team and also voted “Most Beautiful” among her Senior Class.

2. She missed qualifying for the Boston marathon by only 1.30 minutes in the first full marathon she ever ran.

3. She loves her Georgia Bulldogs, especially if it means tailgating is involved

4. She is a marketers and salesperson’s dream! If you have a product, she’ll buy it!

5. She got her MBA while also working full time.

6. At work, after only her first full year with our team, Cherie was voted by peers to win the “Peak of Excellence” award, which is kind of like the MVP on our team. She also won this award with her previous team in Atlanta.

7. As a friend, she is loyal, fun and an inspiration. As a matter of fact, Cherie was how I started CrossFit in the first place. She was my inspiration. When I saw her kick-ass wedding CrossFit bod, I was like, “HOW? and Where do I sign up??!” However, I was so intimidated by her strength and speed, that I had to go looking for my very own CrossFit gym to join so that I didn’t have to work out next to her. So really, she’s the reason I came to CrossFit Intrepid, and I’m sure I’m not along when I say I’m glad she ignored my insecurities and later joined Intrepid as well.

    Happy Birthday Cherie!!! I’m glad you like the photo choice. :) I hated that part of the WOD, but you definitely crushed it! I’m so glad you’ve come to join us at Intrepid and it’s awesome to watch you improve and get stronger. It’s so much fun to have you as a teammate and I look forward to more competitions with you in the future! I hope you’re having a great birthday!!!
