Day 82 Dropping 100 | Memorial Day

Today I honor all service men and women who gave their lives for our freedom.  And thank you to all the veterans who served, and all the active and reserve duty who continue to serve.  I know freedom in not free and what you do is much appreciated,

Today 45 of my friends and I at CrossFit Fayette celebrated Memorial Day morning with a hero WOD, known in the CrossFit community simply as "MURPH".  This is a grueling WOD of about an hour consisting of a 1 mile run, then 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, and 300 air squats, and is topped off with another 1 mile run. Here is a group picture of most of the participants.  What a great turn out at 9 am today.

Even though, I've lost a bunch of weight with Fresh N Fit's great tasting meal plans, I still need to scale movements, so I did MURPH on a boat.  That's right I rowed in lieu of running, and I scaled the pull-ups as well. Like Rich Froning no clock, I just finished.  I did get beat by 73 year old Mr. Don Scott.  He actually beat my friend Byron and I.   I'm so proud of Don and how he attacks CrossFit at his age.  Don, you are an inspiration.  See the After MURPH picture below:

We even had cool t-shirts made to wear and honor this fallen hero Lt. Michael P. Murphy and Operation Red Wings.  See below:

Again, thank you to all the military for my freedom.  And thank you for following, and remember to be better today than you were yesterday.  May God bless us all.
