“The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.”  –Rudolph W. Giuliani.

"Community" is the secret to the success of CrossFit.  When our members finished their 1-mile time trial yesterday,  you often saw them go back outside to encourage the rest of their classmates.

WOD:
*Teams of 2-3, 1 person working at a time.
Row 2001 meters
Then 11 reps of the following:

Toes to Bar

Push Jerk (#110/75)
Row (or Run) 2001 meters

The workout itself is completely symbolic of 9/11. The 2001 meter row represents the year the attack took place. The 11 reps of 9 exercises represents the date (9/11). Even the weights have meaning.

The 125 pound thrusters represents the number of deaths that occurred at the Pentagon. The 175 pound power clean symbolizes the AA Flight 175 that hit the South Tower. The 170 pound deadlift is symbolic of Flight 77 and Flight 93 combined. And the 110 pound push jerk represents the number of floors in each tower of the World Trade Center.
