Extended Bootleg Track


25 Strong showed no concern for the Ides of March and decided to Run, Ruck, and Bike in the gloom.

The Carillon route was called and off we went. The ruckers enjoyed carrying a small body bag through the streets attracting various looks from the early morning crowd.

Congratulations goes to Bootleg who completed an Ultra this past weekend with snow no less. Well done sir! It was great to hear the details of your adventure.


The GrowRuck team is looking for volunteer shadows to assist for a few hours throughout the event. See Shakedown or Honey Do if you want to drink beer and watch them workout.

Too much time tapering, time to run.

  1. With a straight face, Shakedown told one curious onlooker we were within five feet of: “Don’t worry about that, it’s just a body.” For a few seconds, the guy believed him. The look in his face! Good times, gents.

    Beautiful morning for a run!
    Great job guys!
    Enjoyed running with ya Lug and TYA – way to work !
    See y’all in the gloom..

  3. I agree Honey Do! Some great 2nd F today will under weight. One week left fellas to prepare!

  4. Spit looked like Jim Courier with his Nike hat on today. Vinny was slow, but enjoyed the rewards of the run, and the nice temperatures.

  5. That was pretty funny.
    I tried to explain to a coworker who runs a fair bit what we were doing “Yeah so we met at 5:15 this morning with 30 lbs of weight in our backpacks and we lug this 50 pound sandbag around….. Oh you just need to be there.”

  6. Best morning weather this hombre has experienced in these latitudes in some time. Great to catch up with Lockjaw…been too long. Glad to have you back out there.

    Nice to chat with Abba, L.O.L.A., Lab Rat, etc. Good run, boys.

    Special thanks to Flatline, who did not post, but was in my thoughts every moment that my arms moved…a reminder of yesterday’s Super 21s.

  7. I specifically avoided boot camps today for that very reason. Carrying weight for an hour, plus a bodybag some of the time, was preferable to performing a single friggin merkin.
