“Michael” was CrossFit’s second hero WOD (after “J.T.”), posted on the CrossFit Main Site as the workout of the day for July 15, 2005 (050715). The post said: “With heavy hearts we offer our prayers and condolences to his wife, Laura, and 14-month-old daughter, Molly. The price of freedom, and its worth, is found in Michael’s passing. The debt owed to Michael and his family can never be repaid but only honored by remembering Michael and remaining free.”
