How many of these CF Verve athletes do you not know?  Fix that – come rafting!!!

Sunday June 13th's WOD will be rafting "The Numbers" section of the Arkansas River. This trip has been organized by Lisa Ward, CrossFit Verve athlete and former river guide.  On the 13th, we'll meet in Granite (near Buena Vista) at 8:30am to be guided down a Class IV "The Numbers".  All are welcome – friends, family, and non-CrossFit Verve members alike (must be over age 16).  

Everyone that is going must call Lakota River Guides to make a deposit of $25 (total cost is $55 this is SUPER cheap, thanks Lisa).  You must call on or before June 11th in order to go on this trip.  This is another great opportunity to test your fitness, as well as meet some CrossFitter's.  We'll organize a carpool leaving from CrossFit Verve when we have a total number of attendees and we'll certainly meet for late lunch afterwards.  Last year we had 43 people go on this trip and it was truly unforgettable – let's get more going this year!

  1. Matt :

    After being interrupted twice to respond on calls, I gave up on my metcon (the pull-up WOD) and decided to go for a new 1RM shoulder press.
    Despite 2 years of going nowhere – I finally broke 200# with a 10# PR of 205#!!! Stoked! Derek, I’m on your heels buddy.

  2. Awesome Matt!
    And OMG. The workout.
    And sorry I can’t go rafting…
    And OMG. The workout.

  3. I should say:
    OMG. The WOD.

  5. Greg B :

    So I know everyone that looks at this already knows it but this shit works!! Today when I got home I looked at my little personal log and I shaved over 10 minutes off my filthy 50 time from November! (10:43 to be exact) Even when I feel like I am dying I am improving! Thanx Verve for the push.

  6. Justin :

    Congrats Matt, that is awesome.
    Unfortunately, I will be out of town next weekend or else I would love to be on one of those rafts with the Verve Crew. Have fun and be safe all.
