"On Monday, May 30, 2016, Carport CrossFit will celebrate Memorial Day and honor our nation's fallen heroes including, in particular, those who have been awarded The Congressional Medal of Honor, by running the Hero WOD known as "The Murph" or "Murphy". The Murph consists of a 1 mile run, 100 pullups, 200 pushups, 300 air squats and another 1 mile run. It is said to have been the favorite workout of U.S.N. Lt. Michael Murphy who, at the age of 29, valiantly and selflessly gave his life for his country and his comrades while engaging enemy combatants in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005. The pull-ups, pushups, and squats may be partitioned as needed. As Lt. Murphy preferred to do this workout wearing body armor, athletes are encouraged to wear weighted vests as they dare." - Puma
