Oh, Nancy!

When I was in junior high, I listened to the morning radio show from Allentown, PA every day while I got ready for school. My favorite segment was when the DJ would read from Nancy, “the world’s most popular, unfunny comic strip.”

  • 15 overhead squats, 45 lbs.
  • 400 m run

My time: 17:48

I’d never had the pleasure of meeting Nancy before, so I wasn’t sure what weight to try. In retrospect, I think I could have gone 50 or 55 lbs., but the 45-lb. bar gave me a workout, especially when I focused on getting low enough on the squat that I hit the “stick” at the bottom.
