Memorial Day is quickly approaching, which generally means “Murph.” The iconic hero workout is done in CrossFit affiliates across the globe in honor of Lt. Michael P. Murphy, killed in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005 at the age of 29.
We all get together and perform “Murph” on Memorial Day in honor of Lieutenant Michael Murphy. His courage and bravery in battle is hard to truly appreciate. His ultimate sacrifice to save his brothers is hard to fathom. He was a true hero. We encourage you to read more about his story here.
