In May of 2011, after having not skated for six months while healing up from a broken arm, I participated in the GORUCK Challenge, a serious test of physical and mental toughness lead by current and former Special Operations members. I wasn’t ready to skate quite yet, but I did feel the need to challenge myself in some real way. So, I bought a GORUCK Rucksack, loaded it full of bricks and joined Class 037 in Las Vegas for some 10 hours and 20 miles of Good Livin’.
Yes, it was physically and mentally demanding, but the real take away was a deeper understanding of how individuals, working as a team can accomplish so much more together — And a really nice rucksack.
In September of 2011, I joined some 50 other GORUCKER’s for the inaugural GORUCK Ascent in Colorado, where over a few days we trekked a bunch of 14-ers together. It was a really great time, completely off the grid.
