My Awesome Roomie


This is Curtis Keene....he is incredible! He races for Specialized in the downhill mountain bike category and is dubbed "The American Dream" . A name that totally suits him. I guess a photographer gave him that nickname and it stuck. I've been reading about his sport, what he does, and checking out the magazine articles and websites, there are a lot of em! He rides and races for a living...I mean...this is what he does for a JOB! He lives a blessed life and is really humble about his talents. Curtis is nothing short of amazing! Seriously....to be a professional athlete takes dedication and talent. The thought of powering down a muddy hill full throttle as fast as you possibly can - over roots, dips, hills, you name it is beyond crazy to me. When I used to do duathlons, I would unclip down the hills and run with my bike! The thought of wiping out is scary to me. I guess I better get over that quick because Curtis and my Specialized clients plan on torturing me on a ride like I torture them at CrossFit. Curtis started CrossFitting with me and Zoning also - so watch out! He's already really great at most of the movements, especially the fast metcon ones...like wall ball! I feel a Karen WOD coming soon for him...also he's incredibly fast on the rower. His time for a 1k and a 500 is the fatsest on the board at Central. Anyway, he got that new toy in the picture a day after he moved in and is finally taking it for a ride today....stoked!! I hope everybody has a great day! Oh yea..weird thing is his name is Keene - mine is Keener.....crazy! Hes an electrition by trade (only 2 months out of the year) and his family owns Keene Electric in Scotts Valley - a place I always drove by and wondered who these Keene people were! Life is great!!

Hey Shari, glad you're posting regularly again... inspiring us to get off our duffs and WORK.

P.S. I made my stupid blog public again.

Glad to hear you're doing so well, Shari. Come down when you've got time, we've got a box now. First shipment of barbells should be in this week!

Hey Shari, it looks like you're doing great. I haven't been keeping up with your blog for a while, but I used to read you a year or two ago. It's good to come back and see that in spite of all you've been through you're still on the horse and kicking butt.

The client profiles are great. I was thinking the other day - where else could you train and get trainers who really care, I mean really care about you enough to blog about you. Seriously! They're lucky to have you (and the other great CF trainers of course).

Anyway, I just wanted to say 'hi' from down here in Aussie-land and offer you some good wishes.
