With today marking the 8th year since the events of September 11, 2001, it’s fitting to remember the men and women who have given their lives in the line of duty.

Many of CrossFit’s baseline workouts are named after fallen American soldiers, firefighters, and law enforcement officers to honor their sacrifice. Please take at least a moment today to pray for or think about all that have given up everything so that we may live the way we do and have what we have!

Today’s workout, “Danny” is named after Oakland SWAT officer Daniel Sakai, who was killed in the line of duty this past March along with three other officers. Here is a link to his memorial site, check it out.
