What in the world could have possibly been going through my head, you ask? Well, it all started with an idea for a book. That book idea involved a girl going to a personal trainer and ultimately completing some big ol' scary obstacle course run (which I'd later find out is called an OCR). So I asked my buddy, Eric, for information. BIIIIIIIIG mistake! Eric doesn't just hand out information, all willy nilly. Nooooo, Eric makes you work for it - blood, sweat and tears! He said to write about it, I'd have to experience it.
Umm, what?! I didn't get to go to Greece when I was writing Peregrine! So why do I have to experience THIS?! This isn't nearly as much fun as a vacation in lovely Santorini! (Seriously, check out Peregrine - available Friday, Feb 21st. Release party on my page Fri, Sat & Sun)
So Tuesday found me at Rush MMA talking to Bubby, the owner. Bubby, while very, very nice, agreed with Eric. That makes Bubby a very mean man.
Wednesday afternoon found me at Rush MMA again, talking to both Eric & Bubby, and watching Eric torture one girl in a personal training session and then a whole group of men and women. Even one of the guys looked ready to kill him.
And yet, I still followed Bubby to his office and filled out the forms, gave him my debit card info, and told him I'd be there... tonight.
Again, no one said I was smart. What I didn't count on was having mean friends. And yes, Eric, I'm looking at you! Not that I can complain to him, Oh, nooo...this is a guy who did the GoRuck Selection - 48 straight hours of kill-me-now torture.
If no one sees or hears from me tonight or tomorrow... talk to Eric & Bubby. Somewhere, you'll find my lifeless body, albeit in slightly better shape than it was this morning.
