DIRTY THIRTY (Johann Birthday WOD)

104_6718 104_6719

So today I unleashed what it would feel like to do GORUCK in 2hrs +.  Today was the annual Johann Birthday WOD.  Something that I made a yearly thing with Johann.  This year I decided to make it an official event. Old GT was all about fun and the technical aspect even the SUCK factor was not how it is now.  Our WOD’s back then is considered our warmup now.  Anyway, the WOD was suppose to take 2hrs but we ended up adding another 20minutes.  This will be the official yearly GT event.  I am also doing this to my elite GM’s starting in 2013.  I feel like this is how you celebrate your yearly turn your evolution.  I would like to say thank you to the following:
