Ooof – I don’t got it….

Looks like that was a soft and gentle toss from Rick….


In June 2005, Lt. Michael P. Murphy and three fellow members of the Navy Seals were on a mission in the mountains of Afghanistan when they were pinned down by a swarm of enemy fighters. Trapped in a steep ravine, they were unable to get a radio signal to call for help.

With the Americans suffering injuries, ammunition running low and roughly 100 Taliban fighters closing in, Lieutenant Murphy made a bold but fateful decision: He left the sheltering mountain rocks into an open area where he hoped to get a radio frequency.

He managed to make contact with Bagram Air Base, calling in his unit’s location and the size of the enemy force, even as he came under direct fire.  He was shot several times and died. On October 22, 2007 he was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Bush.

Crossfit Junction loves heroes! Invite your friends and come get your sweat on as we do a workout in honor of “Murph” and the all too many others that have fallen defending this country.

Please join us on Monday, May 28th at 11 am.  Feel free to do the WOD as an individual seeking a new PR or find a buddy (or two or three) and make it a team event! Either way, come get a taste of Memorial Day, Crossfit style! When we are done with the WOD we’ll get our grub on so bring a dish to share.  An honoring workout, good food, and great friends…….all free! But feel free to make a donation here.

This will be the only open gym time on Memorial Day.  All other classes are cancelled.
