50 miles on foot is a loooong way.  Carrying over 30 pounds on your back is no picnic either.  However, when you’re teamed up with some real HIMs that motivate you and pull you along with them, it makes the journey a lot easier to conquer.  And CONQUER we did!  Not just our team, butContinue reading “Star Ruck Back Blast (We Be Shufflin’)”
