Remembering 9.11.01

W.O.D. 9.11.09
A 9.11. commemorative Team WOD (teams of 2 athletes will work at once to complete the work load)

Bear Crawl 500 feet total (down and back 5 times)
100 Step-ups (45#/25#)
100 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls (75#/55#)
100 Step-ups (45#/25#)
Bear Crawl 500 feet total (down and back 5 times)
Buddy Carry 200 feet total (carry down and back twice)

This workout is intended to honor and remind us of the bravery that a firefighter or other hero may have demonstrated on that horrific day. The bear crawls remind us that we may not always be able to walk tall into any situation but that should not deter us from the end goal of helping someone in need. The step-ups remind us of the endless flights of stairs that many brave souls endured in order to help others in need. The sumo deadlift high-pulls remind us of the rubble that needed to be removed in order to save the life of a complete stranger. Finally, the buddy carry will remind us that we are all in this together and that life is the greatest of gifts and it is the only thing worth dying for.

We would like to thank every person that gave their life in service on 9-11-01 and every member of the armed services that continue to fight for our freedoms and safety to this day.
Words will never be enough! Thank you.

"Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children."
- President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001

Great honorary writeup today. I truly miss the WOD as I am on the road. Enjoy and God bless. TB

I need to give Lisa props today. She was an all-star this morning and was stepping up like she had no weight in her hands, her sumo's were some of the best I have seen in class by anyone (just remember to shrug) and she carried Meg around like she was a feather. Amazing effort this morning!
