I honestly don’t even know where to begin. It’s hard to even begin to describe someone as dynamic as Petey Elliotte. She has been everything from a police officer, to a flight nurse, to an educator, and now has made a name for herself as one of the upper tier athletes in the area.
After visiting the CrossFit Games in 2016, Petey was inspired by all of the athletes, but especially those in the older, “Masters” dicision. Petey made some dramatic changes in her training and nutrition and managed to cut her body fat percentage from 26% to 11% in less than six months, in an effort to compete on a higher level. As the CrossFit Open 17.1 came to a finish, she was surprised to find herself in the top 70 in the world! She just barely missed out on the top 200 spot to reserve a place in the Regionals, but plans to make it next year.
I have always enjoyed Petey, her positive, and her willingness to laugh easily. It was really a great time to just down and learn about her, and at the same time just laugh at ourselves and enjoy each others company.
