How was it? Easier this time?

There are factors that make it hard by itself - for example - NYC Concrete is unforgiving on your feet.  The ruck is 45 lbs and then you are carrying heavy sandbags, logs, etc.   All that weight over many hours and miles builds up.  Your feet and joints start screaming. 

I'm a lot better at the beatdowns with PT than most, but some of the smaller guys do better with the endless miles.

I've done that distance and weight but thankfully not on concrete. That would be absolutely brutal on the feet. Good effort!

It is - its a team event - not a competition.

I'll need at least a year before I have the time, but I like the idea of persuading either my girlfriend or best friend to do one with me so I can make it more memorable and fun. Credit to this thread for keeping me interested.

I didn't know this thread existed.   :)

If you gents ever make it to Hawaii you are welcome to train with me.  I train each body part once a week.  About 12 to 16 sets for the most part. 

Beware of leg day though.  I already made my wife quit on me.   ;D
