#LABAWESOME

What if your name was Jenny LaBaw and you had been training all year for your return to the CrossFit Games, when the day before the CrossFit Open, you broke your leg in a hit-and-run bike accident??!

Jenny's been inspiring people not only in the arena of CrossFit, but with her story about living with epilepsy. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by spontaneous seizures, and while Jenny's are controlled with medication for the most part, she experiences a constant tingling sensation in her arm that intensifizes during a seizure....but she's determined not to let her disorder keep her from doing anything she puts her mind to.
