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!
