Those who know me understand that I get a little crazy with my workouts. I like to be creative and sometimes that leaves you groaning  in pain. You ask if I get a kick out of seeing you whimper. Well, I’ll be honest … yeah, sometimes, but only a little bit!

Between now and Aug. 7, the tables will be turned as I’ll be the one in the hot seat. I know how much everyone loves doing burpees and now it’s my turn.

I’m training for a record … a Guinness World Record. I’ll be sharing my journey with you all the way leading up to the day — which we are calling Bonkers for Burpees – I make my record attempt.

I want people to see my journey and realize that anything is possible if you put forth the effort.

It’s not just about me showing off or putting my money where my mouth is; it’s all for charity. I want people to see my journey and realize that anything is possible if you put forth the effort.

All the proceeds from the event will be going to a very special organization that hits home for my family. Special Olympics Ohio will be receiving whatever we collect from donations, pledges and sponsorships.

Keep your eyes open for my next blog post and follow me on my journey! I will share some of my workouts along with pictures and videos on this special Bonkers for Burpees website as well as through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Will I be able to break the record of 47 burpees in one minute? You’ll have to check back on Aug. 8. But as the Special Olympics proclaim in their motto: “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
