I am a military service member who service in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I am a normal guy who's been plagued with injuries and weight gain over my 22 years of service. Being a normal guy who've experienced depression, isolation and along with my injuries that I've experienced over the years. I had an epiphany, last year when I was approximately 240 lbs. I FELT that needed to do something... I decided to partake in my 1st Obstacle course race and I loved it...the self determination and competitive spirit was perfect for me. I decided to run more races through out 2014, this time I decided to do it for various causes. (IE: Wounded Warrior, Cancer research, Autism awareness, etc.
