Memorial and Hero Workouts
As many of you may know, its tradition in the CrossFit community to come together to honor fallen warriors by completing HERO WODS. These workouts are especially tough and designed for a specific person or event. Tomorrow, CFRT and the surrounding community will honor SPC Brian Arsenault. This is our way of saying thank you for your service, thank you for your selflessness and thank you for your sacrifice. We can never repay Brian or his family. All we can do is show up, work hard and be thankful for all that we have. There will be no room for complaints, excuses or self pity. It is our responsibility to be sure these heroes are never forgotten. We will do this workout every year, with his family’s blessing, to honor and remember him. We hope you will all join us tomorrow to say thank you to this fallen hero. RIP SPC Brian Arsenault.
