Murph Day

Every year on Memorial Day CrossFit athletes everywhere undertake an especially difficult workout in honor of honor Lt. Michael Murphy and others who gave their lives in the line of duty. “Murph” as we call it, is known as a Hero WOD (Workout of the Day) and is composed of:

1 mile run
100 pull-ups
200 push-ups
300 squats
1 mile run
(Weighted vest optional)

It sucks. A lot. And we do it with the deepest sense of gratitude and respect for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Here’s a link to Lt. Michael Murphy’s amazing story. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/22/us/22medal.html

Please join us in taking a moment to remember America’s heroes and have a safe and happy Memorial Day!
