Memorial Day Murph! Where Major Pain grunts and digs deep, but doesn’t count anything.

27* men came out today to be beat down by the Murph and honor those who have given their lives in service of our country. A little bit of pain and sweat is a good way to “earn” the grilled meats and other celebrations many will have on this day purchased for us by others. […]
