WE HOPE THAT EVERYONE HAS A HAPPY AND SAFE MEMORIAL DAY! WE WANT TO GIVE A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR ATHLETES THAT SERVE OUR COUNTRY WITH HONOR.
Reminder: “Memorial Day Murph” is today! Make sure to sign up for a WOD time.
We can’t wait to see all of you crush “Murph”!

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.
Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.
You will also have the option of doing this WOD as a team, so no excuses!
“Everyone makes mistakes. Not everyone owns them.”
It can be ever-tempting to blame a failure on an external factor. Yet when we do, we gain nothing. We shirk responsibility, and with that, a learning opportunity.
Learning starts with ownership. Recognizing that we can do this better. No one is infallible – we will all make mistakes, and be part of larger mistakes that involve a host of other people. But, even when it’s easy to allow ourselves to blame the situation, look inward.
Ask ourselves the simple question – “What could I have done better?”
