Endurance Athletes are all about obsession. Whether it’s a preoccupation with checking your pace, constantly checking your stride or incessantly checking your breathing and heart rate — you’re always striving for perfection.
Me? I just want to finish without peeing my pants.
Just FYI; if you’re not into obstacle races, running and other endurance sports; not to mention wine, geek stuff, movies, Chihuahuas, or Chihuahua poop, this is probably not the place for you to hang. If you determine this to be true, feel free to leave and surf elsewhere — please do not feel compelled to leave droppings in the comments telling me about what I should be writing. If you do so, you shall be publicly flogged.
