“…Dunne estimates it will take about 3,000 burpees to finish the 3.1-mile distance. He’s hoping to complete the monumental feat in less than six hours.

“I think it’s more of just trying to find the next limit that I can mentally push through,” said Dunne, 25, also a trainer at Southside Knockout gym in Evergreen Park. “The biggest thing with any physical activity is people hit this wall where they think they can’t go any farther.

“But once you find out you’re mentally stronger than your body, you can do it.”

Dunne said burpees received their name because “if you do enough of them, you’ll burp or throw up. People get their asses kicked with burpees….”
