On the road again ... .
Ian Wittenber of Again Faster is back in the car after visiting with top Northeast Regional finishers Rob Orlando and James Hobart in Part 1 of this series.
The second leg of this multi-part journey finds Wittenber about 215 miles from home as he rolls into New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut. The first stop is The Rock Health and Fitness Club in Astoria, N.Y., to chat with Jessica Pamanian (second place, Northeast Regional) about her current training regimen. A former softball player at U.C. Berkeley, Pamanian has the athletic background but lacks much experience in CrossFit, having just starting hitting WODs seriously three weeks before her fourth-place finish at the New England Sectional.
Next up are two veterans to the CrossFit Games, Lauren Plumey (Shoreline CrossFit) and Heather Bergeron (CrossFit New England), who talk about their experiences at the 2009 Games and their outlook on this year’s event.
