Lt. Michael Murphy

This Memorial Day I participated with Mom and the awesome peeps at CrossFit Las Cruces, in the annual Memorial Day Murph Hero Workout and fundraiser event. The Hero workout was created in honor of Lt. Michael Murphy who sacrificed his own life for his fellow soldiers of Navy Seal Team 10. The annual fundraiser now raises money for the Lone Survivor Foundation which benefits wounded soldiers and their families. You can learn more about it here:

The workout is a tough one consisting of a 1 mile run, 100 pull ups, 200 push ups, 300 squats, another 1 mile run; all while wearing a 20# weighted vest. Since I lack opposable thumbs I only participated in the running portions with Mom and napped while she was trudging thru the pull ups, push ups, and squats.
To help get me thru the brutal workout I fueled up with these Peanut Butter Banana Power Muffins that Mom made for me.
