Memorial Day Challenge

Memorial Day at South Island CrossFit is a time for our gym to gather, invite our community, work out, and enjoy our friendships. So on May 27, SIC will join CrossFit gyms around the world in doing the Murph WOD (we call it the Memorial Day Challenge). We do this workout in honor of all those who have given their lives for the freedoms we experience. The workout we do on this day was made famous by Lt. Michael P. Murphy, a Navy SEAL killed in action in 2005.

If you are new to CrossFit within the last 3 months, We recommend you scale the workout and do a half or quarter Murph.  

About the Potluck

For our potluck party, we will be having a burrito bowl potluck. You’re asked to bring something for people to add to their burrito bowl plus an extra side to share. The potluck will start around 5:00pm and finish at 7:00pm. 

For Burrito Bowls, think: Corn, Salsa, Cheese, Sour Cream, Avacado, Beans, Rice, Chicken, Chips, etc.
