Don’t be mad at Dave Castro: Takeaways from the 2018 CrossFit Open.

CrossFit Open 2018: Flashback to 18.4Mid-workout, I turned to my judge (my husband) in a blind rage. I had flopped to the ground off the wall after stretching like a giraffe to get my 12th HSPU of the workout, my pride in shambles.  “I can’t wait for the Open to be over,” I said, panting.  He laughed, […]

CrossFit Mastery: Stop “Hacking” Your Fitness.

Awhile ago I decided to crack open a new book – Mastery by George Leonard. It had been sitting on my bookshelf for a while, and for some reason I was drawn to it (probably because it looks like a short, quick read). The entire premise of the book is about finding joy and fulfillment […]
