Mourning Monday 5.28.12

Navy Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy

Today is Memorial Day and I, along with many others, will be honoring fallen soldiers.

Many of us in the CrossFit community will be honoring Navy Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, who was killed in Afghanistan on June 28, 2005, by taking part in "Memorial Day Murph".
Along with raising money for charities, we will be doing the following WOD (workout of the day) for time:
Run 1 mile
100 pull ups
200 push ups
300 squats
Run 1 mile
If you have body armor or a 20 pound vest, wear it.

I will be participating at my box, CrossFit RVA.
