Given my thing with burpees, I decided to play the game and post about it to see if my more than 110,000 burpees over 2,487 consecutive day wins me something.

- This Is What Happens When You Do 30 Burpees Every Day for 15 Days
- Why Does This Man Do 100 Burpees Each Day of the Year?
After 15 days, only have 2,462 to go!

I’ll let you know if I win.
