Storming Burpee Beach (MSP)

The long awaited, Earn-Your-Gravy workout, brought tribesmen in from Baltimore and Madison. Together, we gave thanks to the final Wednesday workout of November. Although most of the city was dry of ice and snow by the start of this mornings workout, our usual hill was still a bobsled-chute. We took on the facing hill instead. At exactly 6:30am, a snow storm was upon us…   #Weatherproof


This morning’s brand new workout, Burpee Beach, toured us through 4 arches of the Stone Arch bridge. We had 30 minutes to complete a set loop as many times as possible. The loop began under an upper-arch of the bridge, near the top of the hill. The underside of that particular arch is known as “Burpee Beach” because it is a huge sandbox. There, we started the clock and everyone finished 10 burpees and 10 mountain climbers. After finishing, MSP humans took off down the hill, through a another arch, all the way down to “Hop-Rock”. After a single hop on the rock, we turned around and headed back up the hill to the top of the Stone Arch Bridge. Then back down. Every lap included 10 burpees and 10 mountain climbers at the beach. Our fastest finished close to 7 laps.


Hands got sandy, glasses got foggy, and we all left a little stronger than when we showed up. Giam took home the Lumberjack Trophy, and Jered will be spreading the positivity all week. We finished things off with a quick Beach Party, San-Diego style. The tribe was tough this morning. The tribe is strong.


November Project MSP will be meeting this Friday at 6:30am at the Mill City Museum. Happy Thanksgiving to all. Gobble Gobble.
