Yeah, I was feelin’ pretty good about myself, having just signed up for a 10K trail run next month on a course through hilly terrain, deep woods, and four creek crossings. I was going to get down and dirty, kick some butt, and prove to whomever was nearby just how tough I was.
Then I saw the photos from the recent Tough Guy race in England, and realized my 10K trail run on a course through hilly terrain, deep woods, and four creek crossings is probably what the Tough Guy participants do just to loosen up before breakfast.
Maybe I’ll start saving my frequent flier miles to get over to England this time next year for the 2013 race, so I too can experience the joys of running through fire, crawling under barbed wire, and wading through nearly freezing muddy ponds.
Then again . . . maybe not.
