You’re probably wondering: what does the CrossFit Hero WOD Murph have to do with the coronavirus?
Lieutenant Michael Murphy died for our freedom in Afghanistan, and he has a CrossFit Hero workout named after him, which is something CrossFit does to honor our men and women who have given their lives for our freedom. He also has the honor of being the only CrossFit workout that every CrossFit gym in the United States does regularly every Memorial Day.
That’s besides the point. I did Murph today. It was exactly what I needed mentally, physically, and spiritually at this moment in my life. It was hard. But I did really well. I kept thinking of his sacrifice for our freedoms and how now we are all locked up at home, not free. I kept wondering what he would think about all this…
During the fight of the coronavirus, keep in mind those who fought for us before and the sacrifices they made. While we “suffer” at home, it’s not truly suffering in comparison.
Take a deep breath. This will all be over soon. We will have our freedom back. Not thanks to the stupid coronavirus, but thanks to the men and women of our armed forces, such as Murph.
