We’ve had the great honor of being featured on the Dirtbag Diaries, for an episode titled….The Sufferthon! We are very excited to be a part of the Diaries and are avid listeners. Be sure to check out their other great stories at http://www.dirtbagdiaries.com/.
As always we know that we couldn’t have done this alone, special thanks to Kevin Hopper, Aaron Hartz, Becca Cahall, Stormy Given and Anya Crea Vance.
Keep on suffering and stay tuned for the next epic.
Just in case you think that all we do is sit around and scheme up ways to suffer, check this out:
That’s Ty dancing and Hopper yelling like the Southern Oregon boy that he is.
Enjoy the weekend.
I often wonder what it is that drives me to continue to dream up ways to push and challenge myself. After a the muscle soreness has eased and new running shoes have been purchased, I again find my self dreaming of other outlandish routes and Sufferthons. Should the next adventure be entirely self supported? How many bikes can a canoe hold? Can we tow a canoe behind a bike? How can we incorporate skiing in to our route? The bottle of ibuprofen might be half empty but the well of inspiration is bubbling over.
With this in mind we propose the next Grand Tour:
Sufferthon 2 – Summit to Sea
From the summit of Mt. Hood a 36 hour dash to the coast via skis, bikes, white water kayaks and of course running in purple tights.
Planning the next Grand Tour (a short distraction from the work day)
Why? Why the
hell heck not?
You should know a few things:
- The content of this blog will undoubtedly make you cringe and may cause you to doubt yourself.
- You should stop reading and consult a therapist if you feel the urge to attempt similar acts
- If you do attempt to suffer-thon please document well, no one will believe you (trust us) so video and photographic evidence to backup eye witness testimony is a must.
That’s all for now
