GORUCK Land Navigation Heavy - North AAR

Thursday morning came and it was time to load our gear into the car for the 1.5 hour drive north to Molon Labe crossfit gym in Macedonia, OH. My oldest two kids and I were excited to tackle a GORUCK Double Heavy. The first Heavy would be 24+hrs of Land Navigation with a few hour break and then a 24+hr Trek Heavy would start. It wasn’t our first GORUCK event by any stretch but the idea of two Heavies back to back was daunting. My daughter has done a few Lights and a Tough but no Heavy so this was really going to be new territory for her. We all talked about the event, the cadre leading it and stuff but as we got closer the car grew quiet as we all started to really think about the impending challenge.
