I remember the conversation like it was yesterday.  Last January, we sat Bianca down in the Lurong office and told her that we thought that it was in her best interest to continue following the competitor’s program and training with the SCF team, but she wouldn’t be “played” this year at the Northeast Regional.

As a CrossFit coach, as the warmer months approach, I always feel the need provide two reminders to my athletes: […]Continue Reading

The Northeast Regional is Upon Us!

May 16

It’s hard to believe that it’s that time of year already!  The Northeast Regional will take place at the Reebok Headquarters in Canton, MA on Friday, May 30th-Sunday, June 1st.  Shoreline CrossFit had three people qualify as individual competitors and one team.  Both Dave Callahan and I decided to forgo competing individually and represent Shoreline CrossFit […]Continue Reading
