9/11 Tribute Workout

9/11 Tribute Workout
Good Morning Folks,

It feels like yesterday when the towers were attacked.

I was having breakfast at a greasy spoon spot in Marion, MA and watched what would start a 20 year war.

As a senior in high school I had no idea what this meant but it made me angry. Classmates of mine were personally impacted by the death of loved ones and friends went on to join the military.

Now more than ever I recognize and appreciate the sacrifices our troops make in order for us to be able to do the things that we love.

A tribute workout will never scrape the surface of what is owed to our troops, but I hope in some small way it serves as acknowledgement and appreciation for all that they do.

Below is the WOD that a lot of CrossFit facilities do and below that is the version I performed with what limited equipment I have access to.
