The L hold…mentally and physically challenging…

A big thank you to everyone that came out last week for the first In House Competition.  We had around 30 athletes compete in the Rx and Scaled divisions throughout the weekend.  We are going to try and make this a once in a quarter occurrence so more and more of our athletes can get a feel for competing.  I think the next one maybe a partner challenge so stay tuned.

After two weeks and 5 grueling workouts we have the 5 male athletes and 5 female athletes that will represent CrossFit Verve in the Conquer Denver competition taking place December 13th and 14th in Castle Rock Co.  The five men and women are:

Nate Rader
Mas Godinez
Nat Ridder
Jason Teribery
Jason Kaplan
Emmalee Teribery
Anna Matson
Trina Ruhland
Courtney Shepherd
Sarah Levenhagen

We’ve all seen what these ten are capable of doing and we have a damn good shot of winning this thing.  We will also have two alternates should someone above not be able to participate. The two alternates are:

Chad Dagenhart
Robyn Kunick-Bosch

Overall it was a fantastic test of fitness and everyone that participated did very well.  If you competed in the Rx division and would like to see how you fared please grab me in the gym or simply send me an email and I’ll send you the spreadsheet with all the results.

Great job everyone and a special thanks to everyone that came to watch and especially helped judge and clean up equipment.  You guys made it a lot more efficient and fun.

  2. Luke :

    Great job by everyone!

  3. Michelle :

    Hello, I need a little help. I am supposed to bring bacon wrapped dates to a luncheon. I realize that it is probably pretty simple but I am not all intuitive when I cook so… how many dates, how much bacon? How long in the oven, what’s the temp? What kind of dates? (Is there more than one kind?) What kind of nuts?

    Thanks, M

    • NateRader :

      Hey Michelle,

      I like to make mine with 1/2 slice of bacon per date. I buy the pitted dates from sprouts, though every once in awhile there is a pit in there still. I also love to put an almond in the middle. I think I usually do 350 degrees for about 15 mins, or until the bacon looks cooked. Hope this helps and they turn out delicious!!

    • CrossFit Verve :

      Michelle, this is Luke. I don’t think anyone will like those, so if you want, you can just bring them to and I’ll eat them for you. All of them. I’m a giver.

  4. Pottsie :

    I’ve broiled the bacon wrapped dates, too. Sometimes it helps so they don’t pop open. I also like them all a bit caramelized. Delish!

  5. Michelle :

    Thanks guys. I think I can give it a try. (Luke, you never know!)
