For those that were able to come out and participate in our Memorial Day ‘Murph,’ I hope you all enjoyed the experience as much as I did. The night before, in true head coach procrastinating fashion, I asked Jay if he would give a special intro to what this day truly means. Without hardly any notice and absolutely no direction, I received a simple reply back – “I got it.”
If you were around to listen to his words, he gave a unique perspective not only on the history of Memorial Day, but on the unique oath that ALL of our service men and women take. To say that it aroused emotion within many of us is a severe understatement; I surely saw quite a few moist eyes as I stepped into the circle to brief the WOD after he was done. That was the hardest time I’ve ever had briefing a workout, but I did my best to keep my composure. Jay – thank you for such a great introduction.
There are not enough words to express how humbled I am by the grit and determination that each and everyone of you showed throughout that WOD. Deceptively simple with “just bodyweight” movements bookended by relatively short runs, there were some that showed up without any clue as to what they were in for. But each and every person finished. I could not be more proud of this group:
Snatch Balance – 5×3
1st Rib Mobility w/ Barbell
3 RFT –
