Athletes may start with Row and end with Run, or start with Run and end with Row.

This Hero / Tribute WOD, originally attributed to CrossFit Bel Air (Forest Hill, MD) via the CrossFit forum in 2013 was later modified by Hay Camp CrossFit (formerly CrossFir Archaic (Rapid City, SD)) in 2014 to include Push Jerks as the 11th movement.

The workout is symbolic of the US terrorist tacks of September 11, 2001. The 2001 meter row and run represent the year of the attacks. The 11 Reps of 9 exercises represents the date. Even the weights have meaning. The 125 lb Thrusters represents the number of deaths that occurred at the Pentagon. The 175 lb Power Clean symbolizes AA Flight 175 that hit the South Tower. The 170 lb Dead Lift is symbolic of flight 77 and Flight 93 combined. The 110 lb Push Jerks represent the number of floors in each tower of the World Trade Center buildings that were attacked.
