"So, I did a little traveling recently and as we all know when travel takes you to a faraway land where Crossfit does not exist one must persevere.  Pre-trip recon lead me to the understanding that in Turkey I would not be Crossfitting with the Turks as I had hoped.  So instead I brought crossfit to Turkey. At each stop we made I jumped rope to wake up the legs.  You should have seen the joy and excitement a simple jump rope brought my co-travelers as well as the many Turkish folks observing such a silly practice.  I don’t think my rope has seen that kind of action in like FOREVER!!  I taught single unders to amateurs and double unders to the more adventurous.  They enticed me to do double jumping, with another person in the rope with me, and double criss-crosses.  So cool!  I wanted to do a handstand at one of our historical sites to post for y’all, but it ended up being multiple stands at multiple sites.  Who knew handstands were so loved by the crowd?  Imagine if they could see a one of my amazing Crossfit peers doing something truly amazing! Anyway Turkey was incredible, a place not to miss!"  

Speaking of Turkey……..

This Saturday, November 19th is the MBS CrossFit Annual Turkey Challenge in Broomfield!  Multiple Verve athletes and trainers will be competing.  Also, many of you are kind enough to be volunteering Saturday at the event to make sure it runs smoothly.  A big hats off to all of you spending your Saturday to participate in the bigger community of CrossFit!  Information for athletes, volunteers and spectators alike can be found here.  Also, both the individual and team events have been announced and look like fun all around!  

If you are competing, volunteering, or cheering and are interested in carpooling up to MBS, please post your info to comments, including times and locations of departures.
