M48 DAY 1 Recap: Ann Arbor, Michigan, MURPH

Today was an INCREDIBLE day to kick off Mission48 – our hybrid fitness journey across the United States. I’m competing in events of all fitness realms- running, lifting, CrossFitting, mountain biking, and more. 48 comps in 48 states in 48 days. This was day ONE.

We kicked off in Ann Arbor, Michigan at Wolverine Strength & Conditioning with the MURPH workout, sponsored by Urge Juice.

1 mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, 1 mile run with a weighted vest

We had everyone from 10 years old to 60+ years old going after one goal – to push their hard for something so much bigger. Whether your ‘hard’ is walking one mile or doing the entire Murph, everyone showed up and made themselves proud.

I’ll never forget on my last running lap seeing one of the kiddos running past me who wasn’t going to do any of it and proudly said, “I did 300 squats! I didn’t think I could do that!” That is what Mission48 is all about.

HUGE thank you to @wolverinestrong for hosting us and @urgejuice for being the AMAZING sponsor of our kick-off comp! ✨

For those at the event working alongside of me- THANK YOU. I needed that energy 40 minutes in.

1 down, 47 more to go.

Next up: Fort Wayne, Indiana for the @deka.fit partner comp
