Memorial Day Murph
Michael Patrick “Murph” Murphy (May 7, 1976 – June 28, 2005) was a United States Navy SEAL officer who was awarded the U.S. military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his actions during the War in Afghanistan. He was also the first member of the U.S. Navy to receive the award since the Vietnam War.
Murphy was killed June 28, 2005 after exposing himself to enemy fire and knowingly leaving his position of cover to get a clear signal in order to communicate with his headquarters. He provided his unit’s location and requested immediate support for his element and then returned to his position to continue fighting until he died from his wounds.
On July 4, 2005, Murphy’s remains were found by a group of American soldiers during a combat search and rescue operation and returned to the United States. Nine days later, on July 13, Murphy was buried with full military honors at Calverton National Cemetery, Calverton, New York, less than 20 miles from his childhood home.

Aaron Zawislak came to CrossFit Talon this winter looking for some supplemental work on his Olympic Lifting. He was considering being competitive with lifting on the Masters circuit and decided to give our Olympic Lifting Specialty Class a try, along with keeping a consistent CrossFit schedule and even trying out Coach Eli’s Endurance classes. Completing the Talon Weightlifting Club’s most recent six week program, he took the silver medal in his division at the Nashville Weightlifting Open last month.
The Open allows us all to dream a little. To push a little. To reach beyond ourselves.
USA Today High School Sports recently named Karlie Paschall as the Gatorade Player of The Year for girl’s Soccer. Karlie has been training at CrossFit Talon since before the move to Premier Court.

Flash forward to sitting on the bench, I am called in to give the “stars” a break. I keep trying, keep joining, keep practicing. Still, I remain the backup, watching more [more …]
