Looking for motivated training partners in the tri-state area. If your tired of training on a treadmill indoors, and ready to run off the beaten path in the cold December air, let me know. A group…Continue
"If you were in my neck of the woods I would definitely give you a hand. Most places pay to have tires removed. You could get a bunch of tires for no cost at all. Post some pics during the building phase. Goodluck."
"That's what I thought I saw in the one video. And my question would be , how much heat or too much heat did the dry suit keep. This is a race where no matter what you do, your going to be uncomfortable. But I was just a bit curious. Especially…"
"or buckets with rocks, many empty sandbags then dig and fill them with sand, pullup bar, some barbed wire or chicken wire with a 25 yard mud pit to crawl thru. A 500 lbs tire to hit with a sledgehammer for 2 minutes. A…"
"I agree, body glide on the feet is like butter on the toast. And I have had at least a dozen ingrown toenails. Tried having it corterized at the nail root and that sucker still grew back...lol. Goodluck!"
LOL - yes - all homemade. The Marine Corps taught me a lot about good food and good company - it moves an entire Division :-) The BS you boys (women included) go through every day and then have to go home and still deal with BS bothers me to no end - so if I can give them a smile - even if it's a little one – it makes me feel like I'm helping. I always wanted to be a police officer but I think I'll be of more use if I stay on the side lines and cheer you all on - plus I can keep my smile that way. A lot of officers don't smile - or at least don't smile like they used to - I want to help with that. When I get pulled over - I know I'm guilty - I don't argue it - plus, it's always an officer from another department - and when it's one from a department I take care of - I don't say anything - I just take my ticket and give him a smile. I won't ask for favors - it seems wrong. I'm sorry about your father and your fellow officers. that's the very reason I started competing - I thought I had cancer and I wasn't planning on going through the treatment - I figured if I was going to die - I wanted to start living my life before I did it. The officers I run for are not only the fallen ones but also for the ones who are silently hurting and refuse to ask for help. Veterans and Law enforcement Officers are notorious for keeping it to themselves - they don't say anything to anyone and they refuse to ask for help - that's where I come in. I'm going back to school for my Masters in Psychology to work with both groups. I think your goals - in spite of your condition - are awesome. I would love to keep in touch to hear how they go and to hear how your father is fairing – I know he’s going through a lot but he has the best medicine he could have – a son that loves him. I'm running the marathon a month after the TM and two weeks after that - I'm running the Ragnar - 200 mile 12 man relay race. Fun times - but only because I’m a sick individual who like total punishment :-) Take care and stay safe J Tori
