Couple fundraisers coming up this weekend for people who want to save some children by exercising to the point of vomiting.
On Saturday morning, Iron Dragon Crossfit
hosts their 2nd Annual Shanghai Charity Burpee Marathon
. A burpee is an exercise in pain, which starts with a squat, moves into a push-up, and ends with a standing jump. You can watch these swolemates
for an idea. The thought of doing 1000 push-ups alone is insane, but somebody did win the "Undisputed Burpee Legend Full Marathon" at this event last year. Participants can opt to do less burpees in other challenges, or sign up in teams to split the work. Kids teams also get their own category. Registration opens at 9am, and the challenges start at 10am.
