Today I didn’t do “Murph”

While the rest of the CrossFit world did "Murph", I spent the day not doing it. I really would have liked to do the WOD. I didn't do it last year, mainly because I was no where near prepared and I was rather 'green' at the gym. This year I feel like I am at least prepared enough to make it through without dying.

I don't think I can call it a sport, but that doesn't make it or the athletes any less spectacular.  Lets go back one year. I had been doing P90x steadily for roughly 75 days. Its a 90 day program (hence the name), and was determined to finish. On day 78 I had a car accident... how did I not post about that?! An accident that left me…
