We lost one our own today. Mike Kennedy a Boston Fire Fighter, Crossfitter and Coach lost his life today fighting a horrible fire on Beacon Street in Boston. Think of him when you are doing 14.5. He never quit.
So, I have two questions for the CF community. One: I am an 185lb CrossFitter who's looking to gain a little more size. How many carbs should I consume dailey and how much post WOD. And two: Who has any idea what 14.5 is going to look like? Thrusters and burpees??? Please answer....at least question one. ;)
that's some serious hip crease below the knee, batman
Sorry for your loss JohnnyD in comment #1.
JohnnyD I am sorry for your loss
I was going to comment about how busy my life is, and being behind in my wod's, but I want you to know that I will be thinking of Mike Kennedy during 14.5, and will feel blessed that my life is busy. My prayers and thoughts will be with you/and his family....and my perspective is corrected....any other information about Mike?
Sorry for your loss JohnnyD and will be thinking of Mike during 14.5. RIP Firefighter Mike Kennedy!
14.5 should be KALSU!!!!!!!!!!
JD 14.5 for MK
My prayers are with you and yours.
My condolences. Having firefighters in my family makes this news tough to hear. Knowing he was a fellow Crossfitter makes it much harder.
14.5 in his honor.
JohhnyD, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. The family and friends of Michael Kennedy are in my prayers. Stay Strong. God Bless.
JohnnyD - RIP Mike Kennedy - 14.5 is for him
That lady in the pic is badass. Respect.
Active Rest Day for me, Ran a 5k.
2 hours of Jiu Jitsu!
@JohnnyD, I'm so sorry for your loss. It is truly heartbreaking.
I'm married to a professional firefighter and thank God everyday that he comes home.
Praying for Mike Kennedy and Ed Walsh, and their families.
Prayers and tears to Boston Fire, the Kennedy and Walsh families.
Still suffering from some sort of winter crud so lifted some heavy stuff today. Well, heavy for me.
Back Squat 5-rep. Topped out at 195 (first time doing).
Deadlift 5-Rep. Topped out at 275 (might be PR; can't remember).
Mike Kennedy sounds like the kind of guy we could all look up to.
Would love to do a hero WOD in his honor. Call it the "Kennedy"
The Boston Box Alarm was 1579. It would be cool to call it the "Kennedy" as Nickname posted and use a 1-5-7-9 progression. Rest in peace Brothers.
Our 2014 Fire Department Recruit class did this WOD this morning (in bunker pants and coats) in memory of Firefighter Kennedy in Boston:
The fire was Box Alarm 1579 so each exercise in between the sprints progress 1, 5, 7, 9.
ran 3 mile trail at Duke with K:
