THE ACCIDENT MADE ME STRONGER

Amputee

Naturally, cross-fit wasn't on my list of "let's try this" activities

Hi, I am Kristin. Both my legs below the knee were amputated after a horrible car accident on May 5, 2014. I was stuck in my car for 6 days before I was found. I was trying to move forward and advance in my life, but I have 4 kids, was overweight, and was now missing 2 limbs. Naturally, cross-fit wasn't on my list of "let's try this" activities...However one day I did and I was hooked. I never thought I would be doing the physical activities I am doing now. The accident actually has made me stronger both mentally and physically and I even completed the Spartan Military Sprint just shy of 2 years on prosthetics.
