The October Beast Report highlights Jonathan Butler! Jonathan is always a pleasure to see at the Beast tent and on the course. He’s an OCR athlete and runner who recently completed a Ragnar and plans to earn 5 Spartan trifectas next year. He’s working on his hugs (see Q and A #2…he..he), so make sure and help him out when you see him on the course!
Let me start out by saying that I am no stranger to the mental games that can happen during endurance events. I’ve done a couple of Beast OCR events that lasted up to 12 hours overnight, Machete Madness Recon as well as Spartan Hurricane Heats.
Rucking is the foundation of Special Forces training and the “Star Course” is the culminating rucking exercise of Special Forces Selection. You show up with your ruck and you get a list of waypoints. You plot your route, then you start rucking: point to point, mile after mile.
