On Episode 268 of CrossFit Radio, host Justin Judkins interviewed CrossFit Mitchelton owner Lily Cosgrove and Josh Everett. This episode was webcast live at 6 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, March 20, 2013.
3:12 Australian Lily Cosgrove is a former lawyer who is now a member of CrossFit’s Level 1 Seminar Staff and co-owner, with her husband, of CrossFit Mitchelton. She talked about how the CrossFit Games Open is going Down Under and described how her affiliate has joined two others to host the weekly workout in an event they call Friday Night Lights. Cosgrove had a baby about six months ago and explained how she did CrossFit right through her pregnancy.
28:26 Josh Everett has stood on the CrossFit Games podium in 2007 and 2008 and explained what his goals are in the 2012 Open. Everett talked about how the level of competition has increased dramatically since the early days of the Games, and he broke down Event 13.3, which gave athletes a chance to beat their results from last year. The veteran offered advice to anyone thinking about redoing Open workouts before talking about how his training has changed as he’s gotten older and accepted increased family and career responsibilities.
