"Member Monday: Hannah Dormanen"

In my time at Kingfield... I have competed, worked out through two full pregnancies, and come back through steady postpartum recovery (which included a hell of a lot of support and solid coaching).

1. Choose 3 words that best describe you.
 Driven
Affectionate
Authentically awkward :)

2. In 2-4 sentences, tell us - “why CrossFit?”
CrossFit, because I love the tempo, the variety, and the challenges that come with each workout. Kingfield, because the caliber of coaching and community is unmatched. In my time at Kingfield I have cranked out my first pull up, my first hand stand pushup, and my first full Murph.  I have competed, worked out through two full pregnancies, and come back through steady postpartum recovery (which included a hell of a lot of support and solid coaching). Kingfield has always been there for me, meeting me wherever I am, and helping me to be the best version of myself in any given moment.  

3. What goals are you working on - inside of Kingfield?
Truthfully, my #1 goal is showing up.  Right now my life feels like it is full-time everything. Hitting workouts hard 3-4 times a week is what I strive for. When I show up, I know our coaches will bring me the rest of the way.  And, I know I’ll find myself in the mix with a group of awesome people who will push me and pick me up when I need it.

4. In 2-4 sentences, tell us what you’re up to OUTSIDE of Kingfield.
I am a mom to two amazing humans and two goofy dogs, wife and partner in crime to Marcus, and my family means the world to me.  If you come to Kingfield on a Saturday morning, you will likely find us there.  Because, in so many ways, this place is our family, too. 

Other fun facts...I lead a team of analysts at Target HQ in Supply Chain/Inventory Management.  I am fortunate to have a circle of fierce lady friendships that fuel my soul with girl power.  And, I LOVE brunch. 

5. If you had 1 box for all of your things - what would you put in it?
Family photos, a lifetime supply of dark chocolate, good wine, and every book on my top 20 reading list...

6. What is your spirit animal?
According to 3-year-old Liam an elephant. According to my mom a gazelle. I’m cool with both, because the combination marries fierce wit, strength, and grace.
