    Who said we asked for training! Wasn't there some Facebook story about a guy running 26.2 without training on a bet... he's one of ours right :-)

    That was me in high school - a friend on the football team bet me and my then girlfriend (who ran cross country) to run the Marine Corps Marathon. I bought a pair of running shoes the week before, and went on a 6 mile run once to see how it felt.

    We played the last game of the season on that Friday, took the SATs that Saturday, and 'ran' the marathon on Sunday. I recall hitting the wall at ~ mile 19 but managed to be the only one who finished. The GF got horrible blisters and had to stop, and my friend hurt his knee along the way. My time was miserable (4:41:52), but I still remember it off the top of my head!

    And it hurt to start wrestling practice that Monday. Ah, to have the ability to recover like I did when I was 17...

    Picture from somewhere around mile 10 - running in cotton t-shirt, cotton tighty whities, umbro soccer shorts, cotton socks, and my brand new running shoes.

    Please note the complete lack of nutrition intake: I was convinced that eating would give me cramps, so not a shock I crashed at mile 19 (somewhere on Haynes Point, I think) and ran/walked the rest.

    I reached out to MCM a few years ago, and was disappointed to find out that I was not the youngest person to run that year. I had just turned 17, and was full of fitness and stupidity (not too different than today).

    I'm in - It's always fun when I get to say to the wife - "Is it ok if I go hang out in a cabin in the woods in (insert some state in 'merica) with some random people I met on the internet and pretend to exercise?" I'm sure she wants to say - "Is the insurance up to date? yes - go for it..."

    I should probably stop trying to use this as a selling feature to friends and acquaintances. Someone might actually sign up.

    @OverSwimmerCraig_D I used that line to describe the very first NY race year in a sermon once... I also include the fact that those cabins were used in every 1980's horror movie in the woods.

    @PreachSwanson Those cabins were definitely.... something. I'm amazed we all lived through the weekend.

    I still love the memory of 100k worth of bikes in a cabin that didn't really have a lock on it and the entire building had to cost less than 10k

    I took my wife and 6 year old daughter there for this year's Toughman (which all of you bailed on). My daughter LOVED it, and is begging to go back for an entire week so she can go swim, play with fire, defeat me in ping pong, and generally get dirty and run about the campground.

    My wife offered to stay at home for that week.
    (we stayed in the cabin between the two we had last year)

    Yooooo, as the unofficial/official first overall pick of the team draft. I think we need video submissions to get on this team. Might be something we could cut into the kona banger that's already happening.

    I’m late to the thread, but I guess Macca was right: Ben was just a blow-in?

    And now he’s a blow-out?

    I’d rather not see this devolve into a Ben trashing segment. Blow in blow out doesn’t really matter. He did manage to create this place with the help of some other fine folks. If not for that I’d probably be fighting off injuries sustained in cross fit because I’d rather do that than hang out in the other forum. Macca is probably grinning from ear to ear but I really don’t care.

    @OverSwimmerCraig_D I like to think that some good-natured trashing of Ben is OK, but agree fully with you. This forum and team belong to all of you now, but it never would have started without Ben and @Dark_mark creating the Twitter triathlon subculture back in 2013/2014 and Ben's efforts to build a community. :)

    Back onto the dream of the team... Aaron and I cannot make this happen without you, the team... We want to do a few team races, the Sworry Trials and get the new branding out for the team in 2019. We are going to be working on goals and strategy this week so we can open up signups and be clean on what joining the team means for everyone. We want your input. What would you want? What do you not want to see? Be open and honest but don't expect to get it all, we are going to make this great!

    I'll kinda excited. Are we gonna keep the colors? And if so, can we lean toward the darker color schemes?

    Also, I really wanted to do nSworry Trials this year but it wasn't possible. How early do you think we could get dates?

    When keeping it real goes terribly wrong.

    I agree with @toebutt769 on the kit color request. It’d be good if we could keep it consistent for a couple of years in a row too to allow mix and match of a few different items. I’m not sure if that’s possible with a small group like ours and the minimum quantities? Since you guys now control the gear, open it up to sponsors too for advertising. You need to make it worth you while somehow. Decent hat, headband, and a t-shirt and I’m set
