-- Who/What is Murph? --

"Murph" is a workout created in honor of fallen soldier, Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy. The No Boundaries community and the CrossFit community at large gather every Memorial Day to complete this tough workout to honor lives of all those who have fought for and served our country.

On a reconnaissance mission in 2005, during a long-lasting firefight, Lt. Murphy was killed in action, along with two of the other members of his four-man SEAL team, and a dozen other service-members attempting a helicopter rescue. One member of the team survived to tell the story of Murphy’s courageous and selfless actions as he risked, and ultimately sacrificed, his own life in an effort to protect his teammates. Lt. Murphy was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his courageous actions. You can read more about Lt. Murphy’s story here: (http://www.navy.mil/ah_online/moh/murphy.html).

The workout was a favorite of Lt. Murphy during his time serving. He nicknamed it “body armor,” and performed it regularly, hoping it would help protect him in his time in combat.

“Body Armor”
Complete the following for time:

1 Mile Run
100 Pull Ups

*If you have weight vest or body armor, wear it

All are welcome to join us on this special day to workout, or just to stop in and join in the community gathering. Coaches will help with scaling the workout to any experience level, and it may be completed individually or in small groups.
