The goal was to put up some more burpees against F3 Chattanooga’s 2020 1,000,000 burpee challenge. Kraut took us through a burpee run with 150 burpees the day before, but we were going to do it all over again. The twist, today was going to be left up to a little bit of chance. YHC brought a 12 sided die that would be rolled BEFORE crossing any streets, which dictated the number of burpees the PAX had to do before crossing. Then AFTER crossing the street, we rolled the dice again to dictate how many burpees had to be done before moving on.

In all – we ran just over 2 miles and had 14 total street crossings. About halfway through, YHC decided to modify to only rolling for crossing the street after Kraut decided to roll an 11 to cross and 12 on the other side. The decision was. bit time related as well, but mainly Kraut’s big money roll.

When we got back to the AO we were at 132 Burpees, so YHC decided that we would all get ONE more roll each, and that’s where we’d end the burpee count (No surprises). Luck would have it that we would roll EXACTLY 1 more burpee than the number yesterday (151). That was also the number of burpees BasicBro completed so he was 1 ahead of everybody else.

Forrest decided we should do 1 last burpee so we had one more than BasicBro.
