First Holiday Smoke Free

Blog Post created by jbliesmer on May 30, 2017

Week three is toast. 

I have had a few "firsts" since I quit smoking. Tough things (not earth shattering, but personally difficult) and I did them all smoke free.

First of all, Mother's day is not a happy day for me. Mother's Day was the last time I talked to my Dad, 11 years ago. Two days after Mother's Day he passed unexpectedly in the night. Mother's Day was the last time I spoke to my mom. She passed away unexpectedly last year. I dread Mother's Day, for those who are missing and even more now that I don't have a Mother.

But I did it. I got up, I had a good day. I went for a nice long run. And I survived it. And I did it without smoking.

This past weekend (Memorial Day in the U.S.) our local CrossFit box performed the MURPH Challenge. 
Murph is a workout named after Lt. Michael Murphy was died in Afghanistan in 2005. 

You perform the following:
Run 1 mile

100 pull ups

200 push ups

300 squats

Run 1 mile

I cannot begin to explain what an accomplishment this was!
