Background: This workout is dedicated to slain Uvalde teacher Eva Mireles who was one of the two teachers killed along with 19 students at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on May 24, 2022.

The 44-year-old was an avid CrossFitter who regularly attended Shotgun CrossFit in the same county. Mireles was killed protecting her 4th-grade students and had been a teacher in the district for 17 years.

She was described by friends and family as someone who regularly used her fitness from CrossFit to run in local 5K’s and loved hiking. She leaves behind her husband, Ruben, and 22-year-old daughter, Adalynn.

The workout was designed by Shotgun CrossFit @shotguncrossfit (Uvalde, TX, USA) where Eva was a dedicated member. An official fundraiser was set up for the Uvalde community.

The rep scheme signifies:

– 5 rounds for the month of the incident

– 24 Double-Unders for the day

– 19 Toes-to-Bars for the number of students who lost their lives

– 2 Clean-and-Jerks for the 2 teachers who lost their lives.
