Its Hero Sunday today at F.I.T. | Park Meadows CrossFit. Today we give respect to those who gave their lives in service of our country.  On Sundays we pay our respects to those brave men and women by completing a WOD dedicated to them.  It’s an excuse to push harder, never give up, and be thankful for the lives we have.  Today’s hero is:
