“Burpback Mountain is a sweeping epic that explores 45 minutes of HIMs, a Q and his PAX, who meet in the winter of 2020 and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection. The complications, joys and heartbreak they experience provide a testament to the endurance and power of love. @Bartles And Jaymes and site Q deliver emotionally charged, remarkably moving performances in “a workout that is destined to become one of the great classics of our time” (Clay Smith, The Insider).
I may have taken the product description from Amazon, and changed a few words. Hope. Clay Smith doesn’t mind.

Find whimsy in day to day life. Enjoy the sunrise. Life is hard enough right now, and a little bit of humor and fun goes a long way, espefor the 2.0s, but we all need it.

I hope the pre blast and my awesome cowboy hat made someone laugh.
And by count, that’s 95 burpees at the top of the hill, plus ten during the suicides, plus however many it took to get up the hill on the last run. No pax did under 100 burpe, and all finished. Well done, everyone.
And we finished with lots of extra time. I had a second Thang planned but didn’t execute, as I didn’t track time well. I’ll make sure to add it in when I redo this one in the future. Live and learn. It’s still only my fifth or sixth Q. Seems like more.
