Today we start our annual Memorial Weekend Hero Workout Challenge. We have programmed Hero Workouts today, Friday, Saturday and of course Murph on Monday.
Today we are honoring U.S. Marine Lt. Col. Christopher “Otis” Raible, 40, of North Huntington, Pennsylvania. Otis was killed by insurgents during an attack on Camp Bastion, Afghanistan, on Sept. 14, 2012. He joined the Marines in 1995, served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and was the commanding officer of Marine Attack Squadron 211 out of Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Arizona. He trained CrossFit with his wife, Donnella, and daughter Catherine. His favorite movements were deadlifts, squats, overhead presses and bench presses.
He is survived by his wife, Donnella; daughters, Catherine and Allison; and son, Brian.
