Great job JENNY O!!!!! I echo The Vales comments and look forward to seeing you top the charts in Aromas!

I've had the privilege of knowing Jenny for quite awhile and not only is she a dedicated amazing crossfitter she is an amazing person with a heart of gold and a pure soul. She's raising a tremendous family and is an inspiration to many.

Keep it UP!
