Re: combat challenge firefighters

I pretty much stick to regional competitions because, as you mention, there is quite a bit of cost involved in traveling nationwide to follow the circuit. A few times a year is enough punishment for me! The guys that excel are the ones who run the course frequently throughout the year because like so many other things in life, there is no substitute for experience.

My only competitor when I'm on the course is myself and the perpetual quest to get faster each time I run. I'll never be on the same level as many of the top guys, but I enjoy the challenge and it gives me motivation to train along with helping to stay in shape for the job.
