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.

"i used Champix, but only for 2 weeks as opposed to the 3 months you're supposed to. I smoked for 14 years, and haven't had one for 2 years now.   It's fucking hard, simple as that. You just have to really not want to."
