In 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.

Please take a few minutes to watch this video tribute to Medal of Honor Recipient Lt. Michael P. Murphy, USN SEAL

    good luck today, everyone! I have to work so I won't be able to join you in tackling Murph :( Props to my partner from yesterday, Kelly. I think we did a pretty awesome job! Also, I'm thinking of doing the Movement & Mobilty Cert @ Crossfit Vitality in Concord on June 12th. If anyone else is interested let me know & we can carpool. It's $300 & runs from 9am - 430pm

    I survived Murph for 1:04:30. Rx. No weight vest, though. All I have to say is it was hot out today.

    Elizabeth, I'm planning to go at 7 -- stuck at work today, so I'm invading tonight's bootcamp. :) I might try to do Murph. It's pretty endurance-y! Wanna join me?

    Shout out to Lindsey Caley for posting a beastly time, and running my final 800 with me when I wanted to quit...(really bad) and my partner Kim for pulling up my slack!

    Anna, I am also interested! I did "Murphy" @ CrossFit Coastal. Wore a 20lb vest for (longer than 1 mile) runs, and completed in 44:09.
