Recap of the first Green Beret Challenge of 2017, taking place at Mountain Home, TX, which will be the home of the 2017 USOCR Championship.
This endurance challenge is meant to destroy you. Take away your core and lower back stability for as long as possible. Burn out your legs managing that weight through rugged terrain and set your lungs on fire. This was such a fun race. Mark Ballas and crew were able to put something amazing together in such a short time with limited staff in a venue that’s never hosted a race, so I’m sure logistics putting that together added even more to prep. I can’t give them enough credit for what they were able to put together out here. This is also giving me some very high hopes and expectations for the US OCR Championships. The venue is Texas scenic beauty at its finest. That also means, you’re running through Texas terrain, which means that alone is trying to eat you alive. See you all out here again soon, and get to a Green Beret Challenge near you, you won’t regret it.
