Distance : 8-9 miles of the gnarly, rugged and extreme.
Finish : 1:54:33
Rank : #79 (overall)
This year was much easier than last year, and also, we lost a few cool obstacles. We did not have the monkey bar, cliff jumps, rope crossing over the river, and more.
I was not training at all for this race. I just ran a lot. So my plan was, I would kill my time on my running and would take my time on every obstacle nice and easy. And I knew I would pass the Hercules weight pull, from last year experience, the weight + gravity was about the same as my weight. I was dragged and pulled back up by the weight.
The race started with a quarter-mile of a steep uphill, I ran it till I passed everyone in my starting wave, and continue on the trail. Everything went like I was planned to, even on the highest wall, I could jump over it pretty easy. The funny part was, I had a hard time with the giant truck tire, and found out there was a huge rock inside it. The one that pissed me of was I fell on the climbing wall, that was supposed to be my second best strength after trail running, and it was not even difficult traversing. But overall I was pretty happy with my finishing time.
