"Hi Neil. I am certain that you hear this time and time again. It probably isn't news, but I did want you to know my story. I completed my third Ragnar this past weekend. I was runner 10, which included a 3.8 mile run, a 7.5 miler, and then the 4 mile Ragnar hill which includes 1,800 vertical feet of climbing. I'll be honest - I didn't really train for it. My calendar shows I have run 12 times since the beginning of the year. So basically a little more than twice per month. Ha ha. The longest run was 4.5 miles, the majority were exactly 3, one was on a treadmill and another was 2 miles. However, I have done 75 GPP Fit workouts in that same time period. So here is what went down. The 3.8 miler was a non-event. No speed records, but just went out and did it. 8:25 miles. Then the 7.5 mile run in the middle of the night. As the run progressed I seemed to feel stronger and stronger. I finished easily, doing 9:30 miles. This is important as the last time I ran over 4.5 miles was last year's Ragnar when I ran 7. The walk/hike up Ragnar hill was tough, but then again I haven't actually ever run a hill in training. I finished in about an hour, which is not world record, but it certainly is mid-pack among those who actually trained. Now the big deal. My first Ragnar, prior to GPP, was memorable by the fact I was immobile and in pain for several days post race. I was miserable. This year- granted I did the ice bath protocol - I had virtually no soreness or discomfort. I am tired, but my legs feel great. I've been more sore after thrustorama than after ragnar. Another testament of your methods. Thanks. RL"

Can't believe I didn't know about this earlier.  Our own TJ Allred (holding the trophy - YES, the same guy storming the workout next to you at noon today) was part of BYU's National Championship Rugby team this year!  You are an amazing inspiration.  Congratulations TJ!
