PAIN OR GLORY?

A lot of thoughts crossed through my head this past Saturday when attempting a hell of a workout

"the murph" one mile run 100 pull ups 200 push ups and 300 squats followed by 1 miles run.
I decided to add the 20lbs vest to see what I was made of. I had a plan to break the workout into 4 pieces in between the runs 25 pull ups, 75 squats, 50 push ups... so I could recover my upper body. Well starting the third round I began to question if I was capable of finishing with the vest. By the way there was roughly 30 spectators watching the whole thing... with the added pressure of not looking like I took on to much I chose to finish with the vest and get it done. Pictured above is the final lap on the mile.
The workout was hosted by CrossfitPlano.com for a great cause" a fitness competition to benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (www.specialops.org). SOWF provides college scholarship grants, not loans, to surviving children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel killed in combat or training missions."
All I could think of on the last mile was all the soldiers in Iraq who carry 80lbs packs in 100 degree weather day in and out and I was crying about 20 lbs and less then an hour of work. Oh how I was humbled once again by a great Crossfit workout. Thanks to all the American Soldiers who have given there lives to service for our great country.

Strapped "The Murph"

Memorial Day CrossFit Challenge
The Memorial Day CrossFit Challenge is a fitness competition to benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (www.specialops.org). SOWF provides college scholarship grants, not loans, to surviving children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel killed in combat or training missions. The SOWF also provides immediate financial assistance to special operations personnel severely wounded in the global war on terror. The SOWF fills an important void as the people who are benefiting from it are George Orwell’s rough men – The ones who are out there at the really sharp end. It is their kids that use this fund and we can think of no one more deserving.
If you are not aware the Special Operations community is made up of: Rangers, Green Berets, Navy Seals, Air Force Pararescue Jumpers, USMC Force Recon, etc. These guys have been on the front lines of the war on terror from day one. No matter how you feel about the war these are some of the most dedicated people in the world. You don’t hear much about what they do, and they prefer it that way. These are the true "silient professionals". It is not only time that we say “Thanks” – we must also give them our support.
The Event
There is only one event: “Murph”:
In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y. who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.
This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it ‘Body Armor’. From here on it will be referred to as “Murph” in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.
The workout is as tough as the warrior so it’s been scaled down into five categories so even mere mortals can participate. The categories are: Elite, Advanced, Intermediate, Novice, and Beginner.
Elite:
"Murph"
For time:
1 mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run
