There's something to be said for the level of organization of an event... every video I've watched looks like it's setup in someone's backyard.

That and I have no desire to eat a whole pack of peeps and chug a 2L bottle of soda. It makes the whole thing more of a joke/gimmick. Take those out and have it just be obstacles/running/shooting and I'd be more than happy to give it a shot. Otherwise I can't take it seriously.
Technically, it's just someone's property, not back yard since it's all hunting property/lodges/etc.

If you're scared, just say so.

I finally got to 1 mile. 3.6 and 4 mph intervals with 2 minutes at 5.0mph at the end.
186 is my max heart rate.

There is a 14 year old kid/hockey player that managed 1.3 last week. Skinny and lanky, but he crushed it.

Don't worry about it. Kids have retard strength and endurance haha. And skinny and lankey is probably good for it, less weight for him to have to push forward.

I haven't done this test in a while. I've actually been slacking working out in general as I've been pretty busy with life. Only getting in 1,2 maybe 3 workouts a week.

But for the next 4-6 months I'll be doing aerobic base building. Lots of time on the treadmill trying to keep my HR low-ish. Slower steady boring miles to increase my aerobic capacity and cardio efficiency.
A little update since all my races are finished this season. I finished up with a couple shorter races. I've been slacking in my workouts, but getting back into the swing of it finally.

BSS 10k - October 2nd
6.2 mile trail race with a good amount of hills

finished 10th place over all (out of ~160), and 3rd in my age group

Across the Bay 10k - November 6th
