The Murph

12 pax came together this Memorial Day to commemorate those that have sacrificed their lives in service to our country.   In particular, we do the Murph in honor of Michael Murphy, who courageously - and selflessly - gave up his cover to call in rescue teams for his injured comrades, knowing that it would [...]

BM Memorial Weird Ass workout

I went to bed last night with a spring in my step and anticipation in my heart - BM was going to Q a killer workout in the morning and it was gonna be awesome. I awoke to a text from him that he was sick and asking if I could fill in. He even [...]

AMRAP for Cupid
