9-11 Memorial Wod

I had considered doing the Ranger Fitness test but when I looked into it was really 2 movements with a 2minute drill.  Collin posted this tribute wod and we (Rob Potash and Dennis O'Rourke

For Time: 
2001 Meter Run
11 Box Jumps (30/24)
11 Thrusters (125/85)
11 Burpee Chest To Bar Pullups
11 Power Cleans (175/120)
11 HSPU
11 KB Swings (2pood/1.5pood)
11 T2B
11 Dead Lifts (175/120)
11 Push Jerks (115/75)
2001 Meter Run or Row

31:24

I changed the weights to make it easier but all of the weights were symbolic

The WOD itself is completely symbolic of 9/11
The 2001M row or run represents the year the attack took place.
The 11 Reps of 9 exercises represent the date.
Even the weights have meaning.
The 125lb Thrusters represents the number of deaths that occurred at the Pentagon.
The 175lb Power Clean symbolizes AA Flight 175 that hit the South Tower
The 170lb Dead Lift is symbolic of flight 77 and Flight 93 combined
The 110lb Push Jerk represents the number of floors in each tower of the World Trade Center


In the afternoon Susie, Jack and I took a walk over at Arnold Aboreteum.
