Stalk me and DR info

First off, thank you all for the warm welcome back to blogging world! I’ve missed you guys so much and am happy to get back into the swing of things!

 

Tweet tweet… I mean I got twitter @S_Lacourse

Not on facebook yet though, let’s give it some time.

Tumblr, I needed another deadlift site… doubles and deadlifts

Pinterest

Ok this is getting a tad bit ridiculous, but fun, really really fun 🙂

To be honest though I’m a bit ridiculous…

Onto more important topics, the DEATH RACES.

Winter- March 2nd. Pittsfield VT. Start time 6-8pm. Lasts between 16-24 hours typically. Participant #32. Obstacles range from wood chopping to snow trekking to swimming in a pond…. because swimming in March is sane right?

#32 is scared shitless, but also totally stoked.

Summer-  June 15th (day after my 19th birthday, yay I’ll be 19 for a day). Pittsfield VT. Start time 12pm. Lasts up to 3 days, no sleep. Participant #50. Obstacles range from wood chopping to miles of barbed wire to chugging milk to carrying tree stumps, and so on. I really enjoy carrying tree stumps 😉

Please, take the time to watch this here video.

 

This might get interesting.

Training so far has included lots of farmers walks, sledgehammer slams, walking forward planks (to simulate crawling under barbed wire), pvc pipe carries, tire flips, sled pushing, kb swings, boxing, push ups upon push ups, and walking mindlessly with a heavy backpack.

So far I’ve bought – some base layers and a maul.

This maul to be specific. I still need an axe, oh and a knife. No, I won’t kill anyone…. pinky promise.

I still need more gear, like a weekend pack, water bladder, shoes, smartwool socks and hydropel. Yes, hydropel is going to save my life.

I hope your all having a good Friday! Happy weekend!
