A CrossFit Method of Rememberence

CrossFit is not only used as a method of training for sports, it is also used by military, police, and firefighters as a method for being ready for anything. 10 years ago, "anything" took on a new meaning.   CrossFit uses it's own methods for remembering those who protect us each day.  It is not just in raising money, it is in doing something that brings us all together.  Yesterday we did the 9/11 throwdown and I can honestly say it was one of the tougher workouts we have done.  I had a friend who is also a firefighter come up to take part in the event.  For his first ever crossfit workout, he did great.  The important thing is that he finished.  I'm going to leave this post short and just say that I remember that day like it was yesterday and can't believe it was 10 years ago.
