How many times/week does your training include running and/or rowing? Whatever the main site puts out, plus I typically add in rowing or running if there wasn’t any that week.
Do you hope to see a lot of endurance work at the Regionals? Yes! I would like to see a lot of endurance work because I like it, but I don’t think there will be a lot of it. I’m hoping there will be some kind of running WOD.
Shoes: Converse Chuck Taylors or Five Fingers Performa, it depends on what the WOD is 🙂

What has been your main focus in your training since the Regionals? Refining some of my skills and staying healthy and injury free.
How do you think your chances of going to the CrossFit Games 2010 are?I think the women’s competition will be very competitive. Three of us won all of our sectional events and I expect Annie to be there too. Since there are only 3 slots up for grabs, I think it will come down to the wire. I think all of us have a good chance, but it will depend on what comes out of the hopper and how it plays to each athlete’s strengths. I’m excited I think it will be lots of fun!
