Another holiday, another successful event. The turn out for this year’s Memorial Day event was absolutely fantastic, and judging by the way most of your bodies were feeling the next day, it sounds like Murph definitely struck again. Given the awesome cause though, most will probably agree that it was well worth it. In all we had over 60 people in attendance. Watching the huge group of CFK Homies warm up outside gave the trainers chills. We love to see such a large, motivated group of individuals making solid decisions. You didn’t have to come out, but you did and that makes us very proud.
We kicked off the event perfectly, with an emotional reading of the back story of Murph. If that didn’t fire you up, I’m not really sure what would. It must’ve done the trick too because a ton of people even decided to hit Murph solo! Big props to those brave souls. People finished anywhere between 38 minutes to a little over an hour. On such an important day though, when life seems to fall perfectly into perspective, times just don’t seem to matter as much. Only that people were out there working hard and suffering together.
Also, what a spread! Folks love to eat on holidays, and Memorial Day was no exception. It was by far the best spread we’ve ever had. Thank you to everyone who brought some of their favorite paleo/zone treats. It was a post-workout meal worthy of Murph. Let this be the kick start to a great summer and an awesome rest of the year!
