Wandering Web – Happy Memorial Day

Murph Day Announcement: To go along with Memorial Day and what it stands for, Summit Strength/CrossFit SSP will be doing “Murph” on Monday morning, starting at 9. Murph is a Hero WOD named after one of the Navy SEALs who inspired the book and movie, “Lone Survivor”. Michael P. Murphy was the first to be awarded the Medal of Honor for service in Afghanistan after he suffered mortal wounds while exposing himself to enemy fire in order to communicate his team’s dire situation with command. Much of the CrossFit community does the workout named in his memory on Memorial Day weekend to pay our respects to this great American. Please feel free to simply stop by Summit Strength on Monday morning if you’d like to remember with us! No need to register or sign up, just come by.
