I figured a male should be nice to you as well so Happy Birthday girl. We are glad and lucky to have you as part of the community. Keep working hard and take the day off so I don't have to do burpees! lol

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes, I feel lucky to have such a great community to work out with! It will be 29 burpees...so get ready :P

Tim P said...

Happy Bday Laura ! Don't worry I'll do burpees for you until we're old and gray. Even if 70 burpees when the time comes takes me over an hour :)
Keep up the great work and your dedication to fitness and your healthy lifestyle which is admired by so many.

@Tim P: you are such a good husband!

Happy Birthday Laura!

Aimee Lyons said...

Loved the effort everyone put forth today, this one was NOT easy! With the muscle fatigue, it's an extremely tough WOD, like many of the Hero WODs!

The new Steve Z...we need a nickname for you :)

If anyone runs into Jerry over the weekend make sure to ask him about his new favorite exercise the HSPU...

Jerry said...

Aimee I am just hoping I don't have nightmares tonight about hanging upside down tangled in bands!! And I am also thankful that it is not my picture up there..
Folks....it wasn't pretty...
