“PR for Pat” is a Memorial WOD for Patrick Padgett, who was an athlete on the CrossFit Southie CrossFit Games Regionals team. He regrettably lost his life to the cancer in 2015.
The workout was originally created as part of a collaborative effort by friends of Patrick, to help support and collect donations as he was undergoing cancer treatment.
The workout was first posted on crossfitsouthie.com on August 2, 2014.
Here are some important words that Pat posted on his Facebook page before he lost his battle:
“It was all good just a week ago, month ago, year ago, two years ago.
Things happen and change so fast. Two years ago I had very normal and reasonable concerns and stressors in my life. Paying bills, what to do for the future, my fantasy lineup. It’s getting tough to remember those days. It’s funny how our memories work. My concerns and stressors now are not normal; nor are they reasonable. They’re not even fair, but no one ever said life is fair.
I love my family, my friends. The people who love me, I love them.
Speaking from a place of pretty deep and significant insight, I can offer this one piece of wisdom I have learned through my experience: The ONLY things that matter in life are your family, friends, experiences, and love. Everything else is just fluff.”
Today we work-out in honor of Pat.
