About the wod
Background: This workout is dedicated to Dylan Will who passed away on August 20, 2014, from suicide.
The rep scheme of 7/7 signifies the date when Dylan was born. The 98 total reps signify his birth year. The total run of 1600 meters (16) represents the years he blessed this earth.
In Cara’s own words: “On August 20, 2014 my world changed forever. It was my oldest son’s 18th birthday and we were taking him to his first year at college. I was excited, but sad at the thought of “losing” him to the world. Then at 3:00, I received a call that no mother ever wants to receive.
My second son, Dylan, was found dead at our home by my mother-in-law and 3 other children.
I did in fact lose a child that day, but not the way I thought.”
