GORUCK Battle of the Bulge Tough and Light AAR

Friday January 18th rolled around and my son and I were driving to the start point for GORUCK’s Battle of the Bulge memorial Tough in Columbus, Ohio. We had signed up for both the Tough and the Light months ago when the events were announced. The opportunity to do an event in the winter and commemorate such a pivotal battle in WWII seemed perfect. We had been watching the weather all week before and the forecast had fluctuated from 12-18 inches of snow, to rain/snow mix to snow early Saturday AM.  As usual in Ohio, if you don’t like the weather, wait a few minutes and it will change. We were prepared to stay in Columbus between the events if the weather turned bad so the trunk of the car was loaded with rucks, food and clothes.

2019 Race and Event Schedule

2019 Race and Event Schedule

As I did in 2018, I wanted to keep a public schedule of my races and events. I think this year will include a lot more trail running, fewer OCRs and a handful of GORUCK Endurance events. The transition away from OCRs is a long story for another time but in short, I enjoy the other events more.  Here is a picture of my "home" trail system, Rocks and Roots north of Columbus, OH. Truly every time I run there, I leave with a smile.
