see ya there on the 21st of March
Been there done that. Finished 20th out of 153 who finished the military heavy division. My friend Alvarez finished 1st in the military heavy division.
Please take notice to the sweet spit shine on the jungle boots.
my feet look like this only after 12 miles
i've never done more than 20 miles before.
Going to buy some pantyhose tomorrow. hopefully that will help
What's your 12 mile time carrying a pack?
about 3h10m on hardball/uphill/downhill/dirt trail
40 lbs ruck, lbe, acu, patrol cap
fuck I haven't been on any kind of march since basic training back in 06
You are going to hate life in the New Mexico mountains. My 12 mile time prior was in the 1h50m - 2h10m range, but it took my 6h23m to complete the Bataan. I had to stop at the aid station at mile 16 because blood was coming out the breather holes on my boots due to wearing my heels away. That cost me 15m or so. Alavarez, who finished first, did it in 5h17m.
my goal is to finish the march, not trying to win 1st place
hmm...So you think I could kick ass coming from Carson?
I will be volunteering all day. I drive one of the vans that pick up quitters and low priority medical.
Last year, we had a barefoot runner who finished last. He crossed the finish line at 11pm.
Two airmen from Kirtland beat him by an hour. It was their first marathon.
Probably same elevation.
You should always strive for 1st place, regardless of where you finish.
Carson is a few hundred feet higher. Probably couldn't tell a difference.
geekboy, are you going to camp at WSMR?
I don't know. They told me that i'll be sleeping inside a gym or some crap like that.
He ran barefoot?
i have good cardio and leg strength, but my feet will be the first one to go.
i don't ruck enough either. i started training for the bataan since mid-Feb of this year, 7 miles/week
I have a couple buddies who will be out there. My battalion is sending a team to run the marathon, and a team to ruck in the heavy division as well. I am happy to do the 10 or 20 miles we can do here in MN later this year, but not really feeling driving down to New Mexico to ruck 26 miles
would have like to have tried it, i've never rucked past 13 miles
I better not be picking you ladies up.
have the camera and jokes ready.
just look for a halfie azn ROTC cadet
