April 2024 – Alisha Goodrich

1. Tell us about yourself:
I’m a 42 year old mom to two young men. I love spending time with my kids, working in any garden, being in nature, and getting crafty when I have the time.

2. What do you do for a job?
Primarily, I am a caretaker for my 13 year old son on the autism spectrum. I also manage music festivals for part of the year.

3. Tell us something people might not know about you:
I love all pickled vegetables except pickles 😁

4. What brought you to CrossFit in the first place?
A friend introduced me and even though there was running involved, it seemed pretty fun.

5. What was your first impression? How has that changed?
Lifting is my favorite. This will not change.

6. What was your first “bright spot”?
I started noticing ways CrossFit made me a better human in my everyday tasks and challenges.

7. What are you working on now?
Nutrition and doing stuff I don’t love more often.

8. What’s your favorite Beachside CrossFit memory?
Not one thing, lots of little things. Getting to know everyone, lots of laughs, being a part of a community again. It’s been a blast and I always look forward to coming in even if I know the workout might be hard.
