Today we remember the September 11th attacks, and honor the fallen first responders. They answered the call for the last time on that day without hesitation or reguard for themselves. We shall never forget their sacrifice. 

If you have the opportunity, please pick one of these workouts and remember where you were on that tragic day.

 ******If athletes begin the WOD with a Row, they finish with a Run and vice versa.

The workout symbolizes the events that unfolded on September 11, 2001, in its design. The date and year are represented by the row (i.e. 2001 meters) and the 9 movements, each including 11 repetitions. The 125-pound Thrusters represent the deaths that occurred at the Pentagon; the 175-pound Power Clean stands for AA Flight 175 that collided with the South Tower; Flight 77 and Flight 93 were combined and are represented in the 170-pound Deadlift; and the 110-pound Push Jerk signifies the number floors in each of the Twin Towers.
