Member Spotlight: Becca Harris

This month, we have the pleasure of highlighting one of our OG members, Becca Harris. You might know her by her bright workout garb, her abundance of supportive gear, and her “diabetes”. She also has two adopted sons (cute fam pic above) and is the BEST parent to them. Or you may not know her at all, which is totally fine and this blog is about to be super insightful for you.

Let’s jump in!

 

Q:How long have you been doing CrossFit at Renew?

A: Since January 2015.

 

Q:Why did you decide to join?

A: Because I wanted to be awesome at burpees. As you can tell, it has totally worked. OR, because I wanted to be stronger than my 2 man cubs so I needed to pump some serious iron. The CrossFit box I was a part of previously moved and it was too hard to make it consistently. I had a lot of friends that worked out at Renew and the ol’ shed was literally behind my office so rather than creepily watching everyone workout, I decided to join.

 

Q: Over all the years you’ve been a member, what is your favorite memory at Renew?

A: Oh man, how do I pick just one? There was the time I ripped my shorts doing wall-balls and Allman* made me stand in the back of the class. Then there was the time I PR’d my front squat and I peed a little. This also happened when I PR’d my deadlift. Pee and PR’s. Yup I just shared that with you all. You’re welcome.  The 2016 Open was one of my favorites.  It was my first CrossFit Open to compete in and I did it all Rx. It was the first time I did chest to bar pull-ups (!!) and I tried super hard to fake a bar muscle up because my judge was drinking a beer, but alas, we are gym that believes in honesty and dignity and stuff.

 

Q: What is that thing you wear in your little black pouch when you work out?

A: My steroids. It’s how I juice before a WOD. Just kidding. It is an insulin pump. I have Type 1 Diabetes and that thing is what keeps me alive. I don’t think it is the reason I lay on the floor after EVERY WOD, but I will always use that as my fall back excuse.

 

These 4 questions hardly scratch the surface of who Becca is. If you’ve never met her, she usually works out at the 11:30am or 5:30pm (and occasionally the 6:30am when pressured), so get yourself there. Or ask her to hang out. She’ll say yes.

We love you, Becca!

*Chris Allman is the founder of Renew and previous owner and all around legend. Know him. Love him.
