Smile! You’re halfway there!
Today’s workout goes wayyy back to 2008. It’s one of the first workouts of the 2nd CrossFit games in Aromas.
Check out footage of the ladies doing this back in the day.
No Nanos, no Lululemon, some folks couldn’t even do the deadlifts…
I bet many of you could crush the times of some of these ladies today.

Your goal today is to sprint. You should be able to do all reps unbroken for the first couple rounds, so make sure you scale to a weight you can do for at least 5 reps when fresh.
For the burpees, focus on getting down fast and controlling your feet.
Your coach will encourage you to be intentional and fast through each of the movements, but to set up properly for every deadlift.
