Quick Note:

Chilipepper did nonstop burpees since 6am to reach an astonishing 810 completed with Sir Wallace and Tugboat getting in a little earlier and knocking out a couple hundred combined burpees before the beatdown. YHC was Q and made sure to salt the beatdown with burpees with thunderstruck being the finisher before COT. The pax managed to power through a total of 800 combined burpees, bringing the #bd_the_tower count to 1610! Plus @Bernie – James lead #bd_echo-chamber to get 900 combined burpees along with #bd_bee_hive-beeridge getting another 90 burpees from @Josh Komis-Sparkler and @Snapshot-Eric Phillips. Thanks to this amazing show of teamwork, we far surpassed and destroyed the burpee goal totaling 2,600 burpees at todays AO’s! Great work all around πŸ’ͺ
