  • Beat us to death...nearly!

    Well, yesterday, they made us run the "Trail of Tears" and let me tell ya, the name is fitting! The trail is about 2 miles down and as you go down, you stop every 1/4 mile to do some sort of exercise. We ran a 1/4 and did 50 sit-ups, another 1/4 and 50 pushups, 1/4 50 squats, etc. Once we hit the two mile mark, we were at some hills where we had the luxury of running down the hill, doing 25 sit-ups, and bear crawling back up 4 times. We then hit the next hill where we had to do crab walks down, 25 sit-ups, and bear raw back up 4 times. We then ran another quarter mile and did 50 pushups, 50 squats, and 50 sit-ups. We came to a bridge and we had to do lunges all the way across (about 30 yards) and then you take off running back to the starting point without stopping (around 1.25-1.5 miles). In the 109 degree heat index day, this was about all we could take. Multiple people puking throughout. I have done a lot of running in my life (used to run cross country), but this is by far the hardest run I have ever had in my life! One guy told someone that he understands the name "Trail of Tears" because when he was almost finished, he thought he had a couple tears rolling down his face! lol

    Where'd you learn that, Cheech? Drug school?
