Sorta… if you are beat by the last few days, by all means take it off. If you have it in you, I would like to propose one more “Hero” WOD. This is in honor of Richmod P.D. K9 Officer Brad Moody. Officer Moody was invovled in a vehicle accident while responding to a felony assault call with his K9 partner, Rico. Officer Moody sustained major injuries due to the severity of the accident and after a short while on life support, was allowed to pass away. Officer Moody is survived by his wife Susan and their two young daughters. K9 Rico survived the accident and will most likely return to duty in the near future.
To the Moody family and the extended family of Richmond P.D., those of us here at CFC and my partners in the SSD K9 Enforcement Detail extend our heartfelt condolences and prayers to you. There is nothing we can say or do to ease the pain, but in time things will get easier and only good thoughts will remain, all of which will make you smile again. Trust me, I have been there several times and miss those who have passed on, but smile at the good things they left behind for us to remember.
I am part of the Law Enforcement family, as are many who visit and partake in CFC’s workouts. These kind of incidents hurt us more than any civilian will ever know. It is inexplicable, but there is a true bond between those of us who make up the Thin Blue Line. It doesn’t matter if we have never met, when the chips are down we will put it all on the line for our fellow officers. I have said it before, I would without hesitation lay my life down for a fellow partner if it meant saving them from harm. The only other people I would do that for are my wife and kids. I don’t think the average person fully understands that, nor do they understand our loss as a whole when we lose good cops like Brad.
Realize what an important job cops have – without it, there’d be pandemonium and anarchy as turds ran amuck. Be thankful there are cops out there as squared away and dedicated to their profession and community as Brad Moody. The loss of Brad is a loss for all good people in society. So, courtesy of CrossFit OneWorld, we are going to memorialize Brad as only CrossFitters would with the following WOD. Do it today or save it for later, but I expect all of you to do it in his honor at some point.
