Today, I stumbled across a brand new 10k/10mile race, and I’m not sure what to think of it. On one hand, it looks quite .. well, not fun, but maybe satisfyingly challenging!? And my stubborn, competitive side is trying to make me focus on how awesome it would feel to cross the finish line. On the other hand, the name seems pretty apt, and I think you’d have to be nuts to even consider it.
Maybe I’m just nuts.
The 10k race is The Suffering, and the 10 mile version is the Pain and Suffering. Whilst by the names alone, neither of these sound worth going anywhere near, part of me is half considering it. Realistically, reading through the obstacles, I’d probably get a mile in and want to go home!
