We would like to share a little testimony of one of our very own, who just completed this challenge…….

“Over a year ago I was in a bad place in my life.  I lost my fiancé in a car accident, I was in a sad state of depression, I felt alone and I felt like my life meant nothing. My mom finally convinced me to come to Crossfit Groundspeed to try and get my mind off of things.  The first time I walked into the BOX I was scared to death. I had gained weight from just having a baby, plus I thought I was going to be an outsider.  Boy was I wrong.  Everyone was super excited to have me and made me feel so welcome and at home. When I started my Crossfit journey I never saw a real change in my WOD times, or my body, no matter how often I came, until I started the Lurong Challenge.  I loved the paleo life…..I could eat normal (within a few guidelines) and I was never hungry.  I have noticed a big difference in my skin and my asthmatic bronchitis has not bothered me as much since I started eating clean.  As a started doing the workouts for the challenge, I decided I wanted/needed the FULL challenge.  So, I decided to push myself to the limit and  RX every WOD that was presented to me! Not only did I complete that inner challenge, but since eating clean I have lowered my 5k time by whole 10 mins! My Fran time went from 25 mins to now a whopping 8 mins!!    I love Crossfit and My Crossfit Family.  I don’t know where I would be in my life right now if it weren’t for my parents, Crossfit and my Crossfit family!  My final numbers with the Lurong Challenge made me feel AMAZING and PROUD!
