Burpee Challenge

This post is for the two or three of us who haven’t bailed on the burpee challenge…

The last day of the challenge is Saturday, Sep 17. That’s also the day of Fight Gone Bad.

Crazy Kelly, the organizer of the burpee challenge — and just about every other challenge and support group that I can think of — will be out of town on the last day.

Due to Kelly’s absence and FGB, the official last day of the burpee challenge will be Tuesday, Sep 20. If you didn’t participate in the challenge, don’t worry, you will still be able to enjoy 75 burpees for time with those who did, because it will be part of Tuesday’s WOD.

Yes, I said enjoy.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

— William Ernest Henley
