The Thang:

In preparation for the upcoming Memorial Day Murph Challenge, Blackwater hosted a “Practice Murph” with a hard 45 min time limit. PAX were required to start/end with the mile run but everything else was up to them.

  • 1 mile run
  • 100 pullups
  • 200 merkins
  • 300 squats
  • 1 mile run

All PAX broke up the exercises in different formats in an attempt to finish by 6:15.  Each had a different strategy.

Mary: None

COT: PAX were reminded of the selfless acts of LT Mike Murphy who lost his life in service to his country and fellow Seals.  YHC learned that LT Murphy was nicknamed “The Protector” in high school after he intervened when three bullies attempted to shove a disabled kid into a locker. PAX were reminded that it doesn’t take a hero to stand up for someone in need or to model a life of sacrifice in service to others.
