Today we will “MURPH”! Happy Memorial Day weekend!
Modified Murph “SOCIAL DISTANCING” WORKOUT @ 12:00 NOON! We will meet at DeLaveaga Park @ 855 Branciforte Drive, find us on the grassy fields. Bring a towel for ground work and a picnic lunch for after. Here we can always maintain a 12-80 foot distance between athletes at all times, we take extra precautions to stay well within California’s and Santa Cruz County’s Health Code Order Section 10, line #3.  This is safe and properly protected from exposure to each other while surrounded by fresh air and trees. No regulations, nor safety measures are being abandoned.

Michael Murphy was fighting the terrorist group al-Qaeda after they had attacked New York City, and was also fighting the radical elements of the Taliban, a tribe in Afghanistan that supports al-Qaeda. The Taliban then, and still today, are fighting to retake control of Afghanistan and are in a campaign of attacking schools, aid workers, hospitals and the Afghan army. Lt. Murphy earned the Congressional Medal of Honor, our nation’s highest military award, for his courage and loyalty in fighting the enemy and sacrificing his life in the attempt to save the lives of his comrades.
