I don’t know how you feel about this but I am so proud of our Regionals team. Actually, I think I do know how you all feel so I am going to put it out there that the community of T2 is very proud to have John, Ed, Janelle and Anna represent us at the 2018 Atlantic CrossFit Regionals. 

We watched (and heard) them train over the months leading up to the Opens and then admired them as they stepped it up to the next level as they started putting together team workouts. We groaned and clapped as the team events were announced and pondered and pontificated as to whether the events were good or bad.

Some of us were lucky enough to go to West Palm Beach and soak up the atmosphere of the whole event. But whether watching at WPB or on Facebook Live, we all felt the same chill/thrill, when the announcer called out “T2 CrossFit” over the PA system. ‘That’s our team.’

We willed the team to lift the worm; we tried to save you as you handstand walked up the steps and down the ramp; we raised you up the rope so you could wrap your feet; and we peddled the assault bike for at least 30 of your calories.

The skills and strengths required to compete at Regionals level is something else. Only a select few get that opportunity and then only because they are absolutely committed to following their dream and to doing the extra work required. It is a huge commitment and for that we thank John, Ed, Janelle and Anna. They did the work and we get to be #T2proud

So many of you have asked about the olive oil business and we thank you for all of the love and support! We harvest from our family’s farm in Kalamata, Greece, bring the oil back here and bottle & distribute in Bethel Park. Liokareas Olive Oil is all around Pittsburgh specialty shops but can be ordered at Liokareas.com! We deliver for free to your house (or the box)! If you have any other questions feel free to ask Jen “Licorice” Jennifer Liokareas or myself (or Michael Dudek when he shows! 😆) Thanks again!
