By the way... the GoRuck challenge isn't just for men. Many many many tough ladies take and conquer the challenge as well.

Did the challenge on Nov 2 here in TN. It was awesome and brutal at the exact same time. It will be as easy and as hard as you expect it to be. Physical training definitely helps but you can't prepare for the mental stress that will be included. Main thing is to become comfortable with becoming uncomfortable and to use their words embrace the suck. The best part is that when you complete this you become a part of a great community of people that have all been through the same hell and would love to do it all over again. My class was GRT class 303 and we had Cadre Carlos as our bringer of pain and teacher of life's hard truths that night. There was pain, camraderie, pain, injuries, bricks, pain, beer, pain, smurfjacks, hunger games, pain, and good living. If you still have no clue what I am talking about Google that $h_t or better yet sign up for an upcoming GoRuck class.

"Coffee has been somewhat of an evolution for me. I used to only take it loaded with sugar and syrup and creamer. Over the years I have cut everything out. This was a conscious effort for me. You see, when you are in the field, the coffee tends to…"

"I think, Titus, that you made an observation on something that isn't in the text of Herodotus, which would nullify its value as an observation and transmogrify said named observation into an invention, a fiction."
