New World Record!!!

Congratulations to Sydney Jean Gottfried and Maddy Pollock who set a new world record this week for a 24-hour tandem row in their weight and age classes. They rowed for 24hours, taking turns every half hour.

All totaled the girls rowed 285,685 meters, which is about 177.5 miles. What an amazing accomplishment! I'm honored to have ThreeRivers CrossFit associated with such a top notch program with world class coaches.

How CrossFit Can Benefit Triathletes

I saw this on and thought I'd share it here.

Have you been thinking about doing a triathlon? The Pittsburgh Tri is on the last weekend of July. They have a shorter sprint distance available for beginners and a relay for people who want to tackle it as a team.

If the run at the end is the part you are worried about, come to our Running for Performance Enhancement and Injury Prevention on Saturday April 28th at the Steel City Rowing Club in Verona from 10AM-2PM.
