I’m Bethany. I’m 35, almost 36 years old from a small town in southwest Michigan. I am the middle of three kids, older sister, younger brother, and aunt of 4 great kiddos. I had a great childhood, but a lot of my high school years were spent in the hospital and on bed rest due to a pressure sore, so I was unable to participate in extracurricular activities. Fast forward to May of 2018, a friend of mine and my moms invited me to try CrossFit and Me, the girl who hates sports, fell in love. I belong to a wonderful supportive community now that cheers me on and helps me however possible. I am also stronger, more confident and more willing to try new things.

This year I started a blog website and Facebook page called Rollin With Bethany to shine a light on my life, accessibility issues and other issues that affect the disability community. The most important thing I want people to know about me and living with SB is that I am not to be pitied on and I do not live a sad life!

I love that Bethany has found something that gives her the confidence and support that she deserves. It is so important that we all find something in our lives that keeps us moving and challenges us mentally and physically. Be sure to follow Rolling with Bethany!
