200 burpees in a dress in the Walmart parking lot

For those that don't know I made a bet that Mikko woulld win the games this past weekend. I was pretty sure he was going to win so I bet 200 burpees in a dress, this is what transpired.

haha. Nice job. My wife said you should have kept the tags on the dress and returned it when you were done

Re: 200 burpees in a dress in the Walmart parking lot

Comedy gold. Burpees, by themselves, are just so frustrating and humiliating by their very nature. No exercise looks so simple, yet is so maddeningly difficult. If there is a hell, the devil has the bad people doing sets of burpees. Adding the pink dress in the Walmart parking lot just elevates the humiliation. Of course, the people slowly cruising by have no idea how hard it is to do that exercise. And of course, 200 burpees is just murder.

This is the gold standard for all CrossFit bets by which every other bet will be judged.
