Judy says: “Crossfit has DEFINITELY helped my strength and stamina to reach my best running times, even in the Master’s age bracket!! I ran a 5:40 mile here in Cornell’s Barton Hall competing with world record holders!” Congrats, Judy, and if you’ve got a similar story, submit it to allison AT crossfitnyc DOT com.
