G.I. Joe

I know what you’re thinking: “G.I. Joe? AWESOME! But why?”

Well, it’s my friend’s birthday tomorrow. And for a good long while now, she’s been my definition of a “Real American Hero.” And I mean that.  She’s on a short list of two – Cardinal Timothy Dolan of the Archdiocese of New York is the other.

Some fun facts about Liz:

  • She has 10 kipping pullups – outdoing her 17- and 24-year-old daughters. (Are you 23, Allison? It’s hard for me to remember ever since I realized that you had a driver’s license.)
  • She has 26 consecutive Double Unders, handily beating even her husband. (Sorry, Brad. )
  • She hasn’t gone for a one-rep max deadlift recently, but she has deadlifted 225 in the past. This was well over 150% of her body weight. (That is not a typo.)
  • Her husband and daughters are some of the finest people you have ever met. Like attracts like. And the apple does not fall far from the tree; though, I have heard through the grapevine that Em can be a lot to handle at times. (I’ve always got your back, Em.)

I saw Neil mention the other day that a friend of ours (JTT) was celebrating the anniversary of her 29th birthday. So I’m going to wish Liz the same. Happy 29th birthday anniversary, Liz. 🙂

  1. Sometimes I look at the wod before I come in and I wish I hadn’t. I hate push-ups. Mostly because I stink at doing them. But I’m coming anyway. I’ll never get better if I don’t face the stuff I hate!

    • I can’t imagine walking in the doors without knowing what I’m up against. To each their own I guess!

  2. I was just complaining. I do like knowing what to expect. I survived the push ups and one day I will be able to do real ones and hand stand push ups too. Thanks for posting everyday.
