Talon Talks Tara’s Pantry

TalksWebFooter

As promised from the “What’s in Tara’s Pantry” segment on our Talon Talks podcast…

With the large amount of traveling we have done in the last two weeks…once to Cincinnati for the Central East Regionals where our very own coach Will Moorad took 3rd place, earning himself a trip to the CrossFit Games this summer, and once to Seacrest Beach, Florida…where Will tied the knot, people were wanting to know an answer to a question we get a lot:

“How do you keep to the Paleo lifestyle when you travel?”

We are hosting an Easy Paleo seminar on Saturday February 22nd from 2-4 pm at the home of one of our morning members, Janet Carmichael

Paleo Tortilla Soup – Recipe by Karen Daniel

Soup

This cold weather is perfect for soup! Chicken Tortilla Soup is one of our favorites so I found this paleo version of it and had to try. It was perfect and along with a salad made a great dinner. I increased the chicken to 3 cups to help make it substantial. Do not leave out the avocado and a little crisp bacon on top wouldn’t hurt either!

July CrossFit Talon Athlete Of The Month: Matt Rucker

Matt914-2

“I’ve lost 50lbs on the scale (330lbs to 280lbs). I’ve lost 6 inches around my waist (44in to 38in). My back squat has gone from 95lbs to 365lbs. My front squat has gone from non-existent (I didn’t have the flexibility to get into a front-rack position) to 280lbs. My overhead press has gone from 100lbs to 200lbs. My entire body is transforming. Every day there’s some sort of PR – hitting consistent 1:45-55/500m on the rower, actually doing 24’’ box jumps in WODs, going from knees-to-chest to toes-to-bar in WODs, going from ring-rows to jumping pull-ups to now banded pull-ups (I can even do one kipping now), doing a handstand pushup – I could do NONE of this when I started CrossFit.”

Beating The WOD Life Programmed For Me – By Karen Daniel

IMG_1583-682x1024

Currently still recovering, getting stronger everyday! Sucks. Big time. No Lie. Definitely did not pick out this WOD. Had my share of tears, but then again some of you have cried over Fran and Murph! But you know what? You move on. I knew that this is what I had to do to be proactive in my health and life.

June CrossFit Talon Athlete Of The Month: Ryan Russell

Ryan

When asked how he felt after his first week of CrossFit, Ryan said, “I was looking forward to coming back. I always look forward to coming to Talon.” Ryan had never really exercised before jumping head first into CrossFit. The last time he had run a mile was over eight years ago, and just this past Memorial Day, Ryan ran 2 miles during “Murph.”
