A Farewell & a New Chapter

UB Family,

I’ve got some news for you. It’s been a long time coming, but I’ve finally made the choice to move to Vancouver, British Columbia.  It’s a huge change for me, since I’ve been a California girl for 24 years now, but I’m optimistic that it will be the right choice for me in the long run.  

It’s been a pleasure being your coach for the past 2 years.  You guys have taught me so much, and it’s been fun to watch you grow.  I hope I may have sparked a little CrossFit fire in you at one time or another, and that you’ll continue practicing your handstands even when I’m not here :) Thank you for your unwavering support, and tolerance of my overly excited explanations of WODs really early in the morning.

I plan to continue CrossFitting and competing up in Canada.  If you are ever in the Vancouver area (It’s closer than you think 😉) please don't hesitate to reach out and stop by.  My new gym will be CrossFit 604 in Gastown, and my new region will be the West Region (think: Emily Abbott, Brent Fikowski, Cole Sager, etc. for those of you who aren’t as familiar).  I'll be coaching all my normal classes up until I leave, and would love to see your faces in class before I head out! There will be a going away WOD on July 8th at 9:30am. 

Much love, always.

Thank you, truly.

Coach Shannon
