For the last few months, I have been telling you about all the Field Running I have been doing wearing chains draped around my neck, ruck sacks, and sandbags over my shoulders in preparation for the Warrior Challenge.
This past weekend, was the Warrior Challenge, and without a doubt, this 45+ minute run and obstacle course on the beaches of the Jersey town of Avon-by-the-Sea was the most difficult physical endeavor I have ever experienced.
Try as I might, all the months of preparation, all of the extra work that I did, and I still wasn’t in the shape I needed to be in.
Not only was this a physical test of my mettle, it was also a learning experience for this type of challenge…a page in my book of notes for future trials such as this.
Let this report be a lesson for you – always attack you challenges head on, and aim to prepare BEYOND what you think is required.
Warrior Challenge Saturday, July, 20, 2013 in Avon-by-the-Sea, New Jersey:

Rob was an absolute beast the entire challenge. Can’t wait to hit the challenge with him, Dan Huff, and perhaps Brandan, again next year.
Attack your challenges HEAD ON, DIESELS.
All the best in your training,
