The Obstacle Course Racing League launched recently, and I’m in a strange position to know some of the racers, and see their training and their racing and admire their skill and dedication. I admire their 300 burpees a day, and their ability to run far and fast. I admire their rope climbing skills. I admire the way they smash through races like they’re nothing.
But, here’s the thing, and I’m not sure I should admit it in a public space, but I’m doing it anyone.
I don’t think I’ll ever be in the same league as them. I’m afraid that I’m just average and that’s the way my physicality is meant to be. I’m afraid the OCRL will always be out of my league. And, to be frank, I’m a bit tired of being at the back of the pack in races.
End of rant, friends.
