“MURPH” Memorial Day Challenge
CrossFit East Redlands and CrossFit Theseus teamed up to host the classic “MURPH” WOD on Memorial Day and invited all the local CrossFit Boxes. 53 strong came from many boxes. Thank you Coach Esteban and the Redlands Police Officers Association, including the Chief! Most of the RPD did the WOD with 20 lb vests. MURPH is in memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.
This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it “Body Armor.” From here on it will be referred to as “Murph” in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.
