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:

CrossFit Talon has made a name for itself this competition season, as three of our coaches have moved up the ranks in not only CrossFit, but with USA Weightlifting and the newly developed National Pro Fitness League.
