In this episode I brought on a friend of mine, Brian Thomas, who participated with me in the Spartan Endurance Hurricane Heat 12 Hour in Atlanta.  To quote the words from Cookie: “It wasn’t so bad, was it?” Yes, Cookie… Yes it was, HA! That being said, we shared our experience the best we could. Enjoy!

Show Notes:

  • PT from hell.
  • Leading the group.
  • ACDC Thunderstruck burpees.
  • Bring Sally Up sandbag squats.
  • Time hack challenges.
  • Finding your dark places — what will break you and how will you handle it.
  • Mustard seed – never leave home without it!
  • Leaders reviled — complete the mission, but don’t leave a man behind.
  • If you can’t fix it, duck it or build something with it.
  • Just a small taste of what our military brothers go through.
  • After 12 hours can your brain still do math?
  • No patch, no metal, no shirt that can express what you earned internally with self worth.
