At least we're not rowing a marathon (AKA 42,000 meters) on Thursday AMIRITE?!

No, really it was a thing on Wednesday at the CrossFit Games - if you want to watch the fittest people on earth row for 3-plus hours in a stadium full of spectators who paid to watch competitive exercise then click here on the Games site and watch the archive of Event 4

The winning times were 2:43:50 for the men and 3:03:37 for the women.

That makes our "August Open Gym Challenge" seem like a walk in the park!
