The journey continues of completing a Hero WOD a day (Monday-Friday) with my 25 lbs vest until all 254 WODs are completed.
Nearly a month in, and with each passing one, I feel more motivated for the next.
Thomas Butler was the chosen WOD
We've seen a lot of military ones lately, it's great to see fire fighters being honoured in tribute as well.
Being a (volunteer)firefighter myself has opened my eyes to another world of cohesive-brotherhood not unlike the military.
This challenge is to hopefully raise awareness for PTSD that we see in our everyday heroes of soldiers, LEO, EMS and Fire.
Hang cleans at 135 lbs
Wall balls at 20 lbs
Firefighter Hero WOD: This workout is dedicated to Thomas Butler, FDNY, Squad 1, who was killed on September 11, 2001. He was last seen entering the south tower. Butler loved his country. Not only did he work for the New York City Fire Deartment, he was a part-time Smithtown bay constable and served in the Navy Reserve. "He used to say, 'I want to serve my country, the city and my town,'" said his father, Bill, a retired city fire captain. "He was a big flag waver."
Thomas Butler is a firefighter of Squad 1 in Park Slope for 12 years, was killed in Tower Two when it collapsed on Sept. 11. His brother, a Port Authority sergeant and volunteer firefighter in Kings Park, and his father, a retired fire captain, refused to leave Ground Zero until they'd finished working. For months they remained at the site, sifting the wreckage looking for his remains, which they never found.
