The Death Race countdown is in full effect! Eight months of preparation, training, and anticipation are coming to an end this Friday as I embark on one hell of a race. It’s gonna suck…that’s for sure. I will suffer…that is inevitable. But I just have to remind myself that the pain is temporary and the misery only for a few long days. I will EMBRACE THE SUCK and put my best foot forward. I do not know what specifically awaits me but I know that Andy and Joe (the evil minds behind this race) have had all year to dream up the miseries they are about to put us through! I CANNOT wait!
I am packed and ready to go. Flight to Boston’s Logan Airport in 6 hours. I’ll be updating the blog over the next few days with reports on Goruck Beached and my final overnight training ruck with Joe Decker and the rest of his Gut Check Fitness crew (including some fellow Death Racers going out to Vermont). I will also blog on my daily routine over the next few days as I head out to Pittsfield. I will try to post some updates during the race on my Twitter feed whenever I come into Base Camp and have a few minutes. You can also follow the progress of the race on the Peak Races Facebook page, their Twitter feed and probably their website as well as the Death Race website (www.youmaydie.com).
Ruck On. Stay Muddy.
