Background: "Mary," one of CrossFit's classic "Girls" workouts, was first posted on crossfit.com as the workout of the day (along with "Cindy") for Saturday, May 14, 2005.

Interestingly, although "Mary" was named in a 2010 CrossFit Journal article as one of the official "Girls" WODs, "Cindy" was not.
