Christy Phillips at the 2014 Mid-Atlantic Regionals.

By Ericka Andersen

Posted by:

madonnaThat feeling in your lats and quads, that’s accomplishment; well that and the carnage of 14.5. Two days later, I can barely walk and my legs MIGHT have given out on me as I walked up the stairs to my office… I might have gone splat on the stairs…

Who is glad that the open is over? This gal is! It has been a ...

For those who have not heard, a group of 100 rowers in teams of four decided it’d be “fun” to row from Midnight to 8 a.m. for a very good cause this past Friday/Saturday.

The Open is over. What did you learn?

Doing 150 of anything is a daunting task, but then follow that up with 90 double unders and 30 muscle ups, then tie a ribbon on that and make it a 12 minute AMRAP! Welcome back 12.4, I did not miss you.
