Happy Memorial Day!
Reminder: one Class ONLY at 10:30am at both locations
(So, 10:30am @ H St, and 10:30am @ 14th St; all other classes are cancelled)
It’s Memorial Day, and you know what that means: time for Murph! While the vast majority of CF boxes are also completing Murph this weekend, as it’s become somewhat of a tradition, it’s also worth remembering why Murph, along with all the other Hero workout, are so meaningful, especially on during this day of remembrance.
The “Murph” workout takes its name from Lt. Michael P. Murphy, a member of the Navy SEALs from Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2005. Lieutenant Murphy, who abandoned his cover in order to make a call for back-up, was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. He was also an avid CrossFitter known to regularly do workouts while wearing body armor. The workout was one he did himself, and was named in his honor after his death. It’s a great way to remember those who offer up their lives on a regular basis in defense of our country and ideals.
