143: “Murph” - Road to Get an Interview with The Rock, 2018

January 2, 2019
In the 143rd episode of Keep Moving Forward I discuss my 2018 pursuit to secure an interview with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for episode 100 of my podcast. The last few months of this journey took the form of my training to complete the CrossFit Hero WOD "Murph" in a 14-pound weight vest.
*From CrossFit.com*
"Murph"
For time:
1 mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run
 
In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.
This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he'd named it "Body Armor". From here on it will be referred to as "Murph" in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.
Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you've got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.

November 14, 2018

“My role changed from that of child to that of an adult. From athlete to volunteer.” After a tragic accident caused Dick Traum to lose his leg, he decided that he would not be defeated and determined that though one real leg short, he would complete a marathon. As though the mental strength in this feat alone was not enough, Dick didn’t stop there. In fact, his most impressive accomplishments came in the aftermath of the completion of his marathon. Seeing a great need in the community with regards to helping individuals with disabilities discover purpose, Dick founded Achilles International to empower people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream running events in order to promote personal achievement. Starting with 6 disabled persons competing in the 1983 New York City Marathon, Achilles has grown to be a worldwide organization and in 2018, over 1000 individuals with disabilities competed in runs with 250 of those in the New York City Marathon.
 
Dick is a pioneer is so many ways and it was an honor to have the chance to speak with him. I hope you all enjoy my interview with Dick Traum.
