Josh demonstrating great form during his first Verve WOD,  welcome Josh.

Today is the day.  Bring on the Paleo Challenge.  We have over 25 athletes competing.  Anyone already started?  Anyone a little nervous?  Well now is the time for change, there is no better time than now.

Everyday at Verve we are inspired by the hard work and dedication each one of you puts in to get or stay fit and be healthy.  Who will be your inspiration while you work hard these next 7 weeks?

    Hey everyone!!! If anyone wants to hang out tonight with some really cool CrossFitting SOBs, some of us are planning on a night of dinner and comedy (Although I am hilarious, I am not the comedy portion of the night):
    Meet around 6:00pm – 6:30 pm at the Wynkoop (18th and Wynkoop downtown) for Paleo dinner and then downstairs to the Comedy show at 7:30 pm. If 10 people go to the comedy show, we get a discounted rate- I think we are almost there.
    Anywho, my number is 937.409.3521. Call/Text with any questions or flattery.

    So I know we’re supposed to post the good days as well as the bad . . . as rx’d, 15 minutes+. Yeah, one-five. The dead lifts killed me. Someday I’ll be as strong as all of you. 🙂

    About 30 seconds slower than last time, but the variables are waaaay different. Pretty happy with that one.
