Memorial Day Hero WOD "Murph" (05.25.2009)

Memorial Day Hero WOD "Murph" (05.25.2009)
Dedicated to the memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. 
This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he'd named it 'Body Armor.'
From here on it will be referred to as 'Murph' in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is. This WOD was first posted 18 August 2005.

Complete the following for time
1 mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run


*You may partition reps as needed (Think "Cindy") but there must be an unbroken mile of running for the start and the finish. If you have already done "Murph" more than a few times you need to be ready for a 20lb vest... Q-tips anyone?

Post your times with set/rep details for "Murph", and the total distance covered during your CFE WOD to the comments.

I. Welcome Notice, Reason for Picking "Murph"...
One of CrossFit New Hampshire's very first visitors (Dan) is home for a couple of days on holiday liberty and will be dropping in for a WOD. Because the day happens to fall on Memorial Day the requested WOD was Murph, and even though I technically agreed that it was a great idea you can all still blame his ass when you are throwing up on your nice sunny Monday afternoon.


II. Northeast  Regional Qualifier Results 
The weekend qualifier events were insane, probably some of the best times I've had so far among this community of ours.  We are still collecting images and write-ups as well as videos and news articles covering the entire event in all it's ridiculous glory... 

I guess the only downside to the whole chaotic thing was me losing my voice, but even that's not so bad as I'm kinda enjoying the quiet.

Samy, I saw your comment on my site... I haven't looked closely at the scoring but I'm not gonna worry about it too much.

Did you get my email with my thoughts about the games? I sent it late this morning. Let me know.

Oh and trim that damn mustache...

Our three horsemen definitely didn't pull any punches, they killed it.
On another note I do have an excellent incriminating photo of Dennis tucked away for safe keeping.
Sicky job, guys.

You know tomorrow's WOD was originally going to be max effort hugging a fleece blanket, but nooooo you had to really just drag the team down into the abyss of named WODs.
Sigh, I guess now all I can do is run "Barbara" right into you... goodluck with that.
