Dave Briggs is a joke is Dave a little while ago I just went through this it's not exactly an obstacle course it's -- it's a challenge of mental and physical grit and teamwork and -- -- the worst part.
-- I thought I was get it.
It consists we can watch right there there and get now the -- that I was not worried about the ice -- but it when I got in there has ended its inability to labor and equipment.
Well it definitely ratio in the morning Steve is that it all now watching what Steve did is there any advice -- my performance tomorrow seeing what he did it.
Would you say do this -- that's faster -- -- tall guys that are really tough time OK I'm just getting their hottest.
-- -- guys have a hard time you know just keep a smile on your face -- a good attitude is pretty much the only thing you can bring into a tough one that's gonna help you.
The I just want you know it's funny because you guys put in 8000 pounds of ice before we get it right it.
If the water is just Richard definitely.
It's it's it's not water it's it's.

The -- I think.
And -- -- -- now this is -- the team.
Game it's it's not an individual rates -- -- like a marathon has -- is not a race it's a challenger time doesn't matter simply finishing as a team does.
Look at -- let's go in reverse.
Now this is the electric shock field that we had here that's right ours is about 101000 -- ten feet.

James -- James you did it two times -- -- -- very good you know this is a phenomenon that they've got these events all across the country.
I got a bunch of Twitter messages from people saying that I'm going to one in Indiana I'm going to be at the one of Florida I won the -- in Japan and simple it's it's.
Yet Japan -- This is one of those things where it's it's not a race it's a competition against yourself it's a challenge.
Exactly I mean it's given you look at these obstacles and yet the mentally prepare for -- -- It's a do -- -- associates an accomplishment and especially it's great to have but like battle -- sit down to get over the camaraderie it's.

Each of the obstacles tests of being different so for some people upper body strength that obstacle will be great for them.
Other people being -- and being kicked extremely fast -- help them to -- -- unlike other endurance events test all around fitness.
And that's we you can train -- your core strength you leg strength.
