Memorial Day

For Time:
1 mile run
100 Pull-Ups
200 Push-Ups
300 Squats
1 mile run

The workout is named after Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy who was killed in Afghanistan in 2005.  This workout also falls under a category called Hero WODs (workout of the day).  Our gym runs these on occasion and they are generally really long and fairly brutal.  My friend Dani put it best when she told me that “We do these workouts because we are alive and we can.  Our bodies are physically capable of pushing through, so we do”.

To those who have served, are serving or have given the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom of our country, we are beyond grateful.  So many of us don’t have to give our freedom a second thought because of our brave service men and women.  Whatever your political beliefs, we can at least all agree that those who have sacrificed are the ones we truly honor today.

Thank you.
