Who is Lisbeth Darsh?

I hate to run, so I did Tough Mudder in 2011. Go figure. Here I am crawling through mud under barbed wire. Yeah, I can’t explain it either.

I’m somebody who found her way, and I think I can help you find yours. Let me explain.

I’m big into fitness for the physical benefits and the mental benefits. When I move my body, my mind moves better all day long. I’m betting you’re the same way.

Stuff I’ve done in the past: 

  • BA from Vassar College
  • Masters in the Humanities from California State University
  • United States Air Force officer
  • Writing professor
  • CrossFit affiliate owner (CrossFit Watertown in Connecticut, 2007-2011)
  • CrossFit, Inc. key staffer (I helped build the company from 500 to 10,000 worldwide affiliates, 2008-2014)

But what really matters is what I’m doing now — and what you’re doing now.

I’m here. You’re here. Welcome. Read. Explore the archives. And if you like what you see, look over at the right sidebar and sign up for my email list. I’ll send you some awesome words for free every week, and I’ll never sell your email. That’s a promise.

If you need to reach me, come find me on social media. All my pages have icons in those two rows at the top of the sidebar. If you have a question, just ask! I try to respond to everyone.

Be better,
