SSG Joshua Hager was killed in action on a dark road in Ramadi. He had organized and inspected every vehicle and every member of the Scout Platoon including the commander. Lt. Col. Ferry relied upon Josh to make certain everything was in order before they went out. They went out many times. The first Humvee missed the IED. Josh was in the second and was hit by a deeply buried Iranian made IED. Col. Ferry pulled the lifeless body from the wreckage and worked to help the wounded. Rushing to support the attack, another Humvee with the medic hit IED number two.

Friday, the forge conducted hero WOD Josh: 21 ohs (95), 42 pullups, 15 ohs, 30 pullups, 9 ohs, 18 pullups….

First exposure to this workout reveals Fran’s penchant for throwing a beating. Repeated exposures, where the goal is improved time, demonstrate a ferocity that speaks to the painful cost of elite fitness. Considering the thruster’s position as the most draining of all exercises and the pull-up’s reputation for winnowing athlete pools, there may be little surprise in Fran’s effects.

Crossfit Journal 31

Yesterday, the forge completed Fran and, for many, it was the first chance to meet one of the most humbling hurricanes that Crossfit has to offer. On Friday, we revisited Annie. On both days, we witnessed no less than a dozen PR’s….congrats to all who made the effort and improved their fitness!
