    Please take notice to the sweet spit shine on the jungle boots.

    You are going to hate life in the New Mexico mountains. My 12 mile time prior was in the 1h50m - 2h10m range, but it took my 6h23m to complete the Bataan. I had to stop at the aid station at mile 16 because blood was coming out the breather holes on my boots due to wearing my heels away. That cost me 15m or so. Alavarez, who finished first, did it in 5h17m.

    Last year, we had a barefoot runner who finished last. He crossed the finish line at 11pm.

    Two airmen from Kirtland beat him by an hour. It was their first marathon.

    You should always strive for 1st place, regardless of where you finish.

    Carson is a few hundred feet higher. Probably couldn't tell a difference.

    I have a couple buddies who will be out there. My battalion is sending a team to run the marathon, and a team to ruck in the heavy division as well. I am happy to do the 10 or 20 miles we can do here in MN later this year, but not really feeling driving down to New Mexico to ruck 26 miles :hs:
