A big thank you to all who made it in to participate in the Murph.  The workout is a bear (I know a bit of an understantment) but is not only a CrossFit tradition but a memorial WOD for a man who gave the ultimate sacrifice.  It was great to see so many people working hard and great to get a chance to spend time afterwards enjoying each others company.

10 Air Squats
10 KBS – American
