Caitlin, pictured below (first on push-ups, then about to do some banded pull-ups): “In a word, ‘Murph’ was haaaaaaaard. But I had a great time. This was my first ‘Murph’, and I sandwiched myself between two ladies whose pace was faster than mine, which really motivated me to stay focused and moving. I ‘ran’ that final mile like a granny powerwalking in the mall, and I was so cranky, achey, and tired that night that I felt hungover, but it was SOMEHOW still really fun and I’ll be back this Saturday [for the next High Noon Hero WOD] for whatever comes next. 5 stars, would WOD again.”

High Noon Hero WOD, Week 2
We’re back! Come join us for week 2.
To those of you who survived your first “Murph” this past Saturday, congratulations! The energy in the room was unbelievable. Let’s keep it up. This week we’re going to go just as hard!
We’ll be doing “Mr. Joshua” in honor of Petty Officer 1st Class Joshua Thomas Harris who died in Afghanistan in 2008. This WOD will be tough! Do not underestimate it. Like all CrossFit Hero WODs, this one was named after one pretty badass guy. Joshua Harris wasn’t just a Navy SEAL, his commanders described him as the “best of the best” and “the kind of guy you’d want your sister to marry.” In addition he was an artist whose work had been displayed right here in Lincoln Center.
And…some people approached us last weekend about using the High Noon Hero class to raise money for fallen warriors. This is a great idea! We would love to discuss it further, so please e-mail us your suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, if you’d like to make a donation to the Naval Special Warfare Foundation, you can do so here.
Get ready to go hard. Scaling options will be provided as always (click here to read Brand X’s scaling options for this WOD). Sweat, Suffer, Honor, Remember, Repeat.
