30 May Burpee Mile Madness & Saturday Gauntlet Details
On Memorial Day we had around 15 folks brave the incredible heat and incredible challenge of completing the Burpee Mile. Nothing but a mile long of burpee broad jumps in scorching 90 degree weather on the asphalt nonetheless.
It was truly inspiring to watch all you guys gut it out. Many of you said it was one the most mentally and physically demanding things you’ve ever done. But as much as it was demanding, it was rewarding. And most importantly it was an noble way to honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
So this Saturday’s Gauntlet just keeps getting better. We now have 50 people! This year we’ve got an awesome lineup of competitors from the gym and folks as far reaching as Columbus , Wilmington , and Lexington , KY. Not to mention Infidel USA coming all the way from Boston and Derick Carver making the trip from Michigan!
The Gauntlet will be fun to watch and my good friend John Steiner of Infidel USA will be traveling all the way from Boston with his mobile Infidel Booth/Pullup Rig and Handstand Pushup Walls in tow. So we will be having mini-competitions throughout the day at the Infidel booth as well. John will have plenty of gear up for sale as well.
