Memorial Day Murph
Memorial Day is just around the corner, and whether you’re new to CrossFit or not, you’ve probably heard about Murph at some point.
In case you’re unfamiliar, “Murph” is classic CrossFit workout known as a Hero WOD. Hero WOD’s are made by CrossFit to honor the men and women that have fallen in the line of duty. This one is specifically to honor Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005.
1 mile Run
300 Air Squats
1 mile Run
*With a 20 lb Vest or Body Armor
This workout itself was Michael’s favorite workout to do, which at the time referred to it as “Body Armor”, hence the 20 lb vest or body armor as part of the workout prescription. So, every year, CrossFitters synonymously around the world pay special tribute to Lieutenant Murphy by joining together and suffering through this workout.
Please join us as we pay tribute to Michael, and all fallen heroes on May 29, 2017.
Doors open at 6:30am. Heats will go at 7am, 8am, and 9am. In CrossFit Forward tradition, we will have a big BREAKFAST afterwards. Check out our Facebook page for more details!!!
