What has been the best memory so far at Immortal?
My best memory so far at Immortal, is the first impression of seeing a true team in front of me who never made me feel intimidated. I came to CrossFit with absolutely no experience on real workouts. Because of the great support from all my coaches, and my team, I felt no fear of registering for the In-house Competition at the end of May. I had no idea what it was going to be…LOL. I DID IT!!
What is your one go-to, all time favorite cheat meal?
Flan de leche
