Emma Miles is a Washington teenager who’s actually pretty extraordinary.
In many ways, Emma Miles is a typical teenage girl. She’s a 14-year-old middle-school student from rural Pasco, Wash. She lives with her family on a small farm. She’s active in 4H, where she shows sheep every year at the county fair and loves riding her horses. She lives a peaceful country-girl life. Miles is also a dedicated volleyball player. She’s played on club teams for several years, spending many weekends on the road going to various tournaments.
What’s not typical about Miles is her new passion: CrossFit. She discovered CrossFit in the summer of 2011 after attending a CrossFit Kids program. It ignited a spark in Miles that has changed her life.
