WOD of the Week: The Sevens

This week's WOD was submitted by Ariana P., read why she chose this WOD:

'The Sevens' there is something about that is emotionally and physically draining to me. I was in the military during this time (about 8 months), and it always brings me back to my time in. I loved being in for 11 years, and doing any Hero WOD makes me even more appreciative.

The History Behind the Workout: 

A suicide bomber killed seven CIA officers and one Jordanian officer at a remote base in southeastern Afghanistan on December 30, 2009 after posing as a potential informant reporting on Al Qaeda. Seven new stars will be etched onto the memorial wall at the CIA where every star represents grieving friends, family and colleagues dedicated to fight against the enemy, forever in their name.

Killed in the attack were CIA officers Jennifer Lynne Matthews, 45; Scott Michael Roberson, 39; Harold E. Brown Jr., 37; Darren LaBonte, 35; Elizabeth Hanson, 30; and security contractors Jeremy Jason Wise, 35, and Dane Clark Paresi, 46.
