  8. Big Mike

    Surfer on Acid: 9:14 (:25 faster than 4/28)

    Have a 8:56 in the books but that was with the 400M run and burpees done outside so will call this a new course PR

    Great speech this morning Harry. I didn’t look at the clock once and focused on my run which is where I think I gained the time. You can only fold/unfold 6’2″ of man meat so quickly…

    Good luck James, Cheryl, Rachel, Kate, Ally, Tracy, Jeff, Hamel & Kevin. The work is done and you’ll have the biggest team behind you. The rest is all fun.

  9. SOA: 11:55 RX

  14. Rachel E

    Surfer on Acid meets Hey Diddle Dunkel (remember that one??): 8:17 (40 air squats for burpees, except for round 2, in which I did 50 for no reason except to get fitter by accident. It’s how I roll.)

    Thanks for the push on that first run, Mike G.!

      Nice job today. You are a great runner, always trying to keep up with you!

  21. SOA: 10:29 Rx. Had to write the “Rx” since there are so few I can do that way. Burpees just don’t seem to get faster for me no matter how many I do…
