Veteran’s Day Hero WOD

TriQ CrossFit – CrossFit

We dedicate this workout to Army Sgt 1st Class Daniel Crabtree, who was killed in Al Kut, Iraq on Thursday June 8th. To Daniel’s family and friends, we express our sorrow; and we tearfully acknowledge your loss as the true cost of freedom. Fair Winds, Daniel.

The HERO WODs are named after Heroes who have given their lives in the line of duty. Their purpose is to remind us to think outside of ourselves. Forget about the number on the board, the time on the clock, what everyone else’s times are, etc. The point of a hero WOD is to show courage, and put yourself outside of your comfort zone. This workout is in honor of those fallen soldiers. Welcome this level of discomfort that brings the whole thing back into perspective.
A CrossFit HERO WOD is not meant to be an everyday training regimen, nor should it be. These workouts are nasty, and for good reason, they take you to a place that you may never have been before. A level that is indescribable to most that have never been there, and when it is over, you should feel accomplished not because of the time on the clock, but the fact that you finished, the fact that you put it all out there to honor a fallen Hero.
Give this workout everything you have. It will be tough, but in the end, I promise that you will be proud of what just went down.
