It is really hard to believe that this journey is over.  The last day - Friday, September 14th was simply amazing. I was surrounded by unbelievable family and friends.  Truly humbled by the amount of support and encouragement.

Day 366 took place at Crossfit Threshold.  To my surprise 13 other people did them with me and we had people there cheering us on as well.  We did 10 burpees EMOM (every minute on the minute) for 36 minutes.  By the 18th minute, it started getting rough but we did it!!  The longest round of 10 burpees took me 34 the last 50, I had so many emotions pushing me through!  What a moment to jump up for the 67,161st time!!!!

The celebrating began immediately after!!!!!

The fund raising event that night at Cervezas was a huge success, raising almost $1200.  It was a great turn out and such a varied group of people all enjoying some great beer!!! Again, simply amazing!!!!

I took my first 2 rest days in a year - doing absolutely nothing that resembled any form of exercise.  I still have yet to do a burpee...or push up...or a jump as a matter of fact.  It is a little strange, especially since the last 2 months of doing at least 300 a day - finding the time to do them and any other workout became quite a challenge at times.

Throughout this year I have been so blessed. I want to thank all my friends and family who witnessed burpees, counted burpees and did burpees with me!!  Please continue to support this organization and spread the word about it!

 many thanks to everyone!

 the best beer ever!
 I'm pretty sure I will never be able to do 10 burpees again without putting a tally mark somewhere!
 The most amazing group of women!!! OLWB!!!

 awesome gifts from 2 wonderful people that I am lucky enough to have in my life!

3 effin' days left!!!!

I just finished day 363!!! I really can't believe it is almost over.This will be my last post before I post pics and highlights from the final day!!  Days 359, 360 and 361 were only burpees.  Day 360 was very cool, I count my burpees each day with a tally for every 10....I put my last "10 burpees done" tally.  Yesterday I did 362 with a chest and leg workout in between sets of burpees.  My total count so far is 66,066.  The plan for the next 2 days is just burpees and then on Friday, September 14th...we will be doing 10 burpees EMOM for 37 minutes.

 I have had the most amazing friends and family supporting me throughout this journey - it has meant the world to me! I am honored to be a part of Mammograms in Action and to raise funds for their amazing organization.

please continue to support this cause and spread the word.

Day 350!!!!

The days are actually flying by.  I only have 16 days left....when I started I thought this would never end, now it's hard to believe it is almost over.  I could not have done it without the amazing support system I have with my friends and family.  People greet me with "how many today" or "have you done your burpees yet" - I love it!

Day 344 was just burpees.

Day 345 - I tried out my friend's new crossfit box...Crossfit Brink. The skill that morning was to find your 3RM for push jerk
45x10 warm up
second attempt 110x2

the WOD was
10 min amrap
5 power snatch (65#)
10 push ups
15 toes 2 bar
I subbed the push ups for burpees just to get some out of the way.
ended up with 4 complete rounds and 2 snatches on the 5th round and 305 burpees to finish later that day!

Days 346-349 were only burpees

Since last Wednesday's crazy park workout, I have only done burpees everyday - with an occasional core routine.  Another Wednesday today, another crazy park workout.  I made this workout a partner workout.

Please donate:

26 forward moving burpees -back and forth between 2 partners.

*lateral shuffle
*sit up
*Kettle bell swings
*russian twists
*bear crawl
*alt. 1 leg touch down
*prisoner squat with side crunch
*jumping jacks
*lower abs

These exercises have no set number - 1 partner does the first one continuously until the other partner completes 26 burpees - then they switch.  Once both partners have done the lateral shuffle and 26  burpees  - they move on to the run...and so on!!

ends with 5 more forward moving burprees each.

Me and Dave - 62:41

Thanks Jess and Carlos for joining in the fun!!
Total burpee count: 58,996
