Ruck 10mi, 2:29:43, 50lb dry/ 10lb hammer carry

Working on building distance at a natural walk before adding speed. I know I have a ways to go as this pace is the bare minimum. Feet held up well, no blisters or hot spots with a combo of mole skin hikers goo and darn tough socks.

-family came along for first half which was slower but picked it up in second half and was able to hit the last couple miles at a 13:15 pace. Once I build some more distance I will try and carry that pace and faster throughout.

Feet- Doing really well, bought a pair of the Nike SFB Boots which for me have worked great so far. Moleskin and Hikers goo have helped a lot and have experienced no blisters and only small hot spots. Still a work in progress.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, looking forward to closing out the year and starting the pipeline in 2020.

Not too much mud at Camp MacKall.

Mostly sand, with some clay.

If possible, suggest that you do some road work (ruck/run) on sand to develop your lower legs prior to shipping out.

Best of luck! Never quit.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910
