Proud and humbled, seems like an oxymoron. I think that’s what you would call it. But my specialty is not grammar or of course I would not be a CrossFit Coach. Maybe I still would since Karen is your Coach too.
Regardless, that is how I felt this past Memorial Day Murph 2015. Watching my athletes start off honoring Lt. Michael P. Murphy with the American flag in the lead made me proud of what they were about to encounter and accomplish. And humbled realizing how small of a price they will pay with their soreness compared to all the men and women who died to give us this time with our friends.
With Eric and I finishing out the WOD again with the American flag in the lead, we had many passerby’s waiving and honking. Normally everyone is busy with their day, in their little pod cars not noticing the wonderful community of American’s around them. But that day the American flag, for a small moment, connected us and reminded us that regardless of our differences of opinions, we still considered ourselves one… one Nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
Thank you Lt. Michael P. Murphy. I know I speak for all of us at CrossFit RAZE when I say we hope we honored you well.
