Memorial Day "MURPH" 2013 at Imperial CrossFit

One of the baddest workouts I know of.  
Memorial Day honors the late, Lt. Michael Murphy of the Navy SEALs.  

92 participants came to Imperial CrossFit today.

Even some of the kids did this brutal workout.  Much respect.

Alot of people today, so they did it in the Strongman area of Imperial.

You get 1 hour to finish it...or just do your best to finish.

I jumped in & ran the last lap with Kyle. Pops Riess & others did as well.

The AFTERMATH.  David Lopez's hands.

Much respect to my braddahs & sistahs at Imperial CrossFit!
You guys have all my respect for doing this grueling workout in honor of MURPH.

A blessed Memorial Day to all the veterans who served to protect our country.

Truly a special day when everyone comes together to honor a great man who laid his life on the line to save his peers.  Lt Michael Murphy

This was the second worst single-day U.S. Forces death toll since Operation Enduring Freedom began nearly six years ago. It was the single largest loss of life for Naval Special Warfare since World War II.
