Ann smiling through 14.5. Honestly I don’t know how because I was definitely not smiling.

Well another Open season has come to an end and per usual I was blown away by the performances and attitudes at Verve.  Our athletes not only excelled in hitting amazing athletic accomplishments, but the camaraderie displayed during the past 5 weeks is what was most special to witness.  

We all know that the CrossFit community is super supportive.  Whether it’s rallying behind a charity or simply cheering on your fellow athletes while they finish a workout.  This was completely evident during the past 5 weeks as athletes partnered up and judged and cheered on their fellow athletes.  This past Saturday was extremely special to witness and I’m glad that everyone that participated was able to experience that type of atmosphere.

During the past 5 weeks, we have also been using the Tuesday workouts as an in house qualifier for the Verve regional team.  We’ve tried to make the workouts as fun and competitive as possible.  The Open workouts this year did an amazing job of testing athletes and we’ve tried to continue that with our Tuesday workouts as well.

Today’s workout is the last team qualifier workout.  We should know the athletes that will be invited to participate on the Verve team by the end of the week.  A few of you still have a few workouts to make up so please try to finish all the workouts and give us your scores by the end of the week.  If you have a workout to do and are having issues finding the time to complete it, please email me @ eric@crossfitverve.com and I’ll figure something out.  Also if you have any questions please email me.  As of the writing of this post we are in 25th place in the region and the top 30 teams receive invites.  

Once we’ve established who the athletes are, we will begin talking about next steps.  Great job by everyone over the past 5 weeks.  

Post your experiences about the Open in the comments section.  We’d love to hear all your thoughts about the experience!
