The thing that got me interested was helping the people who need help — the athletic achievement is kind of secondary to the actual fundraising.
I don’t know that it’s a rivalry — it’s a lot of support. We don’t talk about one beating another. We kind of push each other to keep training.
It was hard. The gear doesn’t breathe very well, so it gets real hot, real quick. It’s a little like running in waist-deep water –the resistance of the pants themselves is a big challenge.
We actually lived in a rambler.
