She may seem sweet and innocent, but hand this girl a barbell and take a step back, because you are about to witness something amazing. This month’s MOM goes out to Samantha Carr. Although she has been a member of Albany Crossfit for a few years now, it wasn’t until last summer that Sam began to competitively Crossfit. Since making that decision she has grown tremendously as a person and athlete. What I admire most about Sam is her determination to be better. You can find her just about every morning spending countless hours working on her sucks. This hard work has paid huge dividends as Sam was chosen as the alternate for the Albany Crossfit regional team. In one short year she went from doing Crossfit as a hobby, to becoming a fierce competitor. I am proud to call Sam a teammate and a friend. I can’t wait to see the progress that she is going to make in this upcoming year.
