Reason for Participating

I got into volunteering for cancer charities through platelet donations at Children's Hospital Boston. It's the least I could do.
Testing my limits for a great cause sounded like a great use of my time and effort!

TOUGHEST PART OF TRAINING

The toughest part of my training was footwork. I'd be moving till I tore open blisters, and sat there at night taping them up for the next day. Eventually they toughened up, and now I'm light on my feet.

MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF TRAINING

Throwing people into the ropes. Seeing your opponent start to get a little tired and getting that surge of energy. The look of surprise.

HAS YOUR VIEW OF BOXING CHANGED?

I thought boxing would be just like any other sport.

Oh, oh so wrong. 

GREATEST SPORTING ACHIEVEMENT TO DATE

Climbing a 5'11 wall three months into rock climbing.
