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 come to the WOD time that you signed up for.
If you ordered a shirt they will be available to pick up at CFD before your heat.
We can’t wait to see all of you crush “Murph”!
1 mile Run

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!
“Leadership is not about being in charge. Leadership is about taking care of those in your charge.”
What defines a leader? Is it promotion, titles, or status? We realize that is not the case.
We’ve all met others at some point in our lives that were, title wise, on an identical level. Both been students in school, teammates on a sports team, or co-workers in a job. Yet something set them apart. We don’t remember them for what they said or did, but instead, for how they made us feel.
There’s a line that’s been said a million times over.
“Why did you do it?”
“Because he (or she) would have done it for me”.
True leadership is not a title.
