Tuesday 7.2 : A WOD for Freedom

This is our last full day of classes before our brief July 4th break. It’s cliche to promote the whole ‘Merica and “do this one for the men and women who fought for our freedom!”, but sometimes cliches are created to be made into cliches.

The workout we are doing is one I have always had a weird affinity for. Weird because the first time I did it it literally almost killed me. I don’t remember much of during or after. I remember waking up on my apartment floor with my dog at the time licking my face to wake me up. Weird also because I was never in the CIA or even close to so, or any group that helped track and kill Osama Bin Laden. The story of what lead to and followed the deaths of the 7 operators who are the “Seven” of this workout I wish I could watch, read about, learn about for the first time every time I do. It’s that amazing. These people were that amazing.

Not that every Hero who has a Hero WOD named after them doesn’t deserve it, because they absolutely do. These heroes, however, might be the most of the most deserving. Up there at least with “Murph”. If it wasn’t for “The Seven”, the worst terrorist of our time who masterminded the worst terror attack in history on Americans wouldn’t have been captured and killed.

When doing this workout do it not only for these Seven but also the men and women who died doing other operations trying to track down Bin Laden, and the men and women who ultimately succeeded in killing the f**king piece of sh*t.

If you haven’t, watch the movie “Zero Dark Thirty”. It’s long, it’s amazing, and if you can get over the constant eating and speaking of the main characters, something I still to this day cannot comprehend was signed off on, you will learn and feel rage and fear and cry all in the 3 hours of this epic that tells this story.

Get in here and do this workout for America. Ain’t no cliche about it.
