That was slightly after the founding of Murica, and slightly before the founding of Rx Bars. Two important events in human history.
For those of you who don't know the story of Murph - first of all - welcome to Murica. Second of all, get to Googling. Here is the original Crossfit post of the workout. And here is his Wikipedia page.
And here is Marky Mark in the movie Lone Survivor.
A couple other gyms throughout this great nation will also be following suit and performing this WOD on Monday. Like all of them. So get on board and get into the gym. And before I catch a bunch of heat and BS comments on Monday, no I won't be joining you for this suckfest. But I have performed 3 Murphs in my lifetime, and 2 of them were in heavy weighted vests. A highly motivated internet stalker might be able to find photos of such things taking place.
I was only able to find this shot of me before the WOD, unfortunately they cropped out my head.
We will be running heats every 30-45 minutes between the hours of 7 and 11 am. Sign up in Wodify, or do it like you normally do and don't sign up in Wodify. Either way, we'll be there. And if you're looking for other "fun" events for the weekend, Steph will also be hosting a 24ish mile bike ride on Sunday morning, May 24th. Meet at the gym at 7am. Anybody is welcome, so feel free to bring your bike-riding family members as well.
Or your bike-riding monkey if you've got one.
