Congratulations to Ron for winning October’s “Member of the Month” award! In accordance with our core values at Wayfarer CrossFit, Ron exemplifies respect, selflessness, a great attitude, and a solid attendance record.
We recently sat down with Ron to ask him a few questions so you can get to know him better. His answers are in bold.
What is your occupation? Eye doctor at Your Family Eye Doctors, locations in North Huntingdon and Murrysville
What are your hobbies outside of CrossFit? Gardening, feeding hummingbirds, activities with family
What is the best advice you’ve ever been given? ??? Here is one of my funniest stories instead. Several years ago we were going to an indoor water park for two days overnight in Ohio. At the time, when I would pump gas with my kiddos in the car, I would squat down and creep around the car and pop up from below the windows and scare my kids. Sometimes I would pop up at the same window and sometimes I would be on the other side of the car. We all really enjoyed this game. I had the gas pumping, with the nozzle lock on, at a gas station on the turnpike. I tried to squat/walk under the pumping gas and bumped the nozzle out while underneath it. The gas completely soaked me, my hair and shirt dripping. The gas continued to shoot gas under the car until I was able to turn it off. Luckily, the gas station was at a big facility for truckers as well and there were showers there. I hadn’t packed towels or soap because I figured the hotel would have them. I grabbed my wife’s shampoo, my sweat pants, and a tshirt from our overnight bag. I took a shampoo shower in a stainless steel trucker shower stall. I had to drip dry as there was no towel. When I got dressed, I realized I grabbed my wife’s scoop neck long sleeve black tshirt instead of my own tshirt. It was super tight and looked ridiculous as I was still dripping wet. I made my way over to the indoor court where my wife and kiddos were sitting and eating some Panera. I tried to sit down and my wife said, “Absolutely Not” and pointed out of the building to the parking lot. I went and sat in the car and until they came out and then smelled like gas for two days.
