Emily Carothers will be coming to Boston from the Northwest Region, up in Washington state.  Her CrossFit story mimics that of many multitasking mothers, with two young boys at home Emily balances her family, job, and training.  This past year that took her all the way to 13th place in the 2014 CrossFit Games.  It’s working Emily!

Many aspects or movements in CrossFit are able to showcase Emily’s skills as they compliment her many years of competing in gymnastics, up to the Division 1 collegiate level.  We are very excited to welcome Emily to Boston to compete at this year’s ECC, what is she thinking of the upcoming trip to the very other end of the country?

“When I initially received my Golden Ticket I was honored to be included in the list of athletes invited to this competition.  I had followed along last year online and definitely wanted to be a part of it this year, so I [am] excited for the opportunity.”
In just thirteen days from today, registration for the 2015 Open will be live and training for the upper level athletes will be in full swing for Games season.  The ECC will serve as a fun weekend with great competition for these athletes just before starting the month of Open workouts.
“I’m most excited to see my friends from around the country that typically I only get to see at the Games.  It will be great to catch up with everyone and see how hard everyone has worked over the last 6 months as everyone is prepping for the 2015 season.”
Big, warm welcome to Emily in a few weeks when she joins the ECC athletes!
