CrossFit Seven’s loss is CrossFit Dallas Central’s gain…..Whiskey is relocating to Dallas for his new job and will take up residence with Spencer’s crew over at Dallas Central…..sad for us, good for them!
When I first met Whiskey about three years ago, I was really scared of him. I had been CrossFitting on my own for a year and half, and working out with other CrossFitters was a new experience for me. I was intimidated by how strong everyone was, and I couldn’t figure out why this guy Whiskey kept yelling at me…It didn’t take me long to see Whiskey wasn’t yelling – he was commanding me to do my very best. I learned to admire that Whiskey demanded you give your all, and when he coached, he wasn’t going to let you whimp out and not try to move a heavy weight. Whiskey was great at barking orders, demanding you move, which also helped you build great confidence when your mind and body told you that you couldn’t. Whiskey taught me that it’s better to fail moving a big weight than to whimp out and not try, and over time, that helped me become a strong athlete.
Whiskey, many, many thanks to you from all of us, and we all wish you great luck. We also expect you to drop by and visit once in a while, as well as bust some chops on the blog.
