Yes, why am I writting about The Challenge here?
Because it is an experience I think everyone should try. Because it’s about the team and once you realize this you become a better you. Again to quote Patrick:
If you are considering taking the Challenge yourself, this is the biggest lesson I learned and can impart. Please realize that the point of the Challenge is to show you a side of yourself you never thought possible. A side that not only has the mental and physical strength to do it, but also the compassion and sacrifice to give yourself up for others so that they may do the same for you. Because the very essence of teamwork is to help everyone else get the job done knowing and trusting that they are doing the same for everyone else and you. Only then will you see that no one gets through this Challenge (or this life) alone. And this is why we do it.
Because it is about them, The Team.
Can’t wait to do a Goruck challenge. I finished the Goruck light on Saturday. It was much harder and more exciting then I thought it would be. Six hours of running around Nashville with 34 other people taught me a lot. Can’t wait to do the full version.
