Hope everyone had a great Independence Day celebration! Our Train for the Win programming is challenging us this month with 10 Hero WODs which is awesome! Not only are they physically challenging, but they keep us mindful of those that paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and safety. Today’s WOD is in honor of a firefighter who was also a former Marine.

Boston firefighter Michael Kennedy, 33, of Boston, Massachusetts, died fighting a nine-alarm fire on March 26, 2014. Kennedy served with the Boston Fire Department for six and a half years and was a Marine Corps sergeant who served a tour in Iraq before that. He had a big presence in his local CrossFit community, coaching and training at several affiliates, including CrossFit Craic, CrossFit Florian, CrossFit Together and CrossFit HomeBase. He is survived by his girlfriend, Sarah Wessman, and many other beloved friends and family members.
