GoRuck and the Need for Challenge


If you are reading this, chances are you are not the average guy.  Well, not entirely.  But you are to some extent.  And to that extent, you suck.

Most guys' lives consist of get up, go to work, come home, eat some crap, go to sleep, repeat.  Their training consists of occasional curls.  They do the same thing every day, nothing that they don't know they can do, and they love to talk about how awesome they are.  They grow old, they get out of shape, and they lose hope, because they've lose meaning.  

Time to change that.  Time to reclaim living well.

Living well does NOT mean living easily.  Quite the opposite, in fact. Living well means living with purpose, making yourself a better man.  And you cannot make yourself a better man without challenge.

Just like I cannot get stronger without lifting weights that are hard for me, we cannot be better men without pushing against our limits.  Without challenge, without difficulty, there is no virtue.  

This is where GoRuck comes in.  I invited a friend to come with me on one of their challenges, and he asked me, "why would anyone want to do that?" My instant reaction was, "for the satisfaction of knowing you can."  There is something in man that desires to conquer challenges for their own sake.  To climb things for no reason other than standing on top of them and knowing you beat them.  There are many, many ways to challenge yourself, but this is a good one.  Check it out.  Challenge yourself.  Live a little better.
