    We mourn quietly and we pant loudly, in rememberance of our fallen. Offering the pain in our legs and lungs as a sacrifice, in honor of our brethren. Those brave few who have gone on to the Halls of Glory, joining the Vanguard of our past.
    Heroes, every one of them.

    Had some work done on my wifes car at big O tires down street from shed. Came by in the morning and caught last little bit of woman’s class, very impressive. And ran home from shed Did griff along the way. Running backwards really does take it out of you. Not sure on time or distance, but close to 12 minutes I think. my apartment to shed is 2900 meters, so just ran for 4 minutes, then ran backwards for 3 minutes. Just my rough estimate.

    Thanks Griff for the ultimate sacrifice, we will honor you and your family with this workout for years to come.

    I figured if my wife did the WOD, I’d be somewhat of a chump if I didn’t do it as well. This was my first workout since 5/29;

    Ten rounds for time of:
    12 Burpees
    12 Pull-ups

    17:33 as RX’d in the 95*F apparatus bay of Station 8, welcome back baby.
