Over the past several weeks myself and 7 other athletes from Verve (Nate, Kaplan, Ryan, Robyn, Maddie, Anna and Courtney) have been putting in some long hours getting ready for this little shindig. We have been following programming put together by Matt Chan and had some excellent coaching from Joylyn, Matt and Cherie. It was a battle and after the dust settled we ended up 10th place in the Southwest Region. I had an absolute blast. Thanks to my girlfriend, team mates, coaches, members of Crossfit Verve, ATP Mechanix, Steve’s Club, Crossfit Tribe and everyone else along the way for the support. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the weekend:
