He is going with our friend Chris Davis' mom and brother to support Chris as he endures the Spartan Races Ultra Beast, the ultimate goal of months of work this year. The Ultra Beast is a marathon-length obstacle course.
I have mentioned Chris before. Not too long ago he weighed almost 700 pounds. Through hard work and surgery he reduced that to 400 pounds. This year through grueling training and diet, learning things about himself, and most of all teaching his trainers what true grit is he has gotten his weight down to 272 pounds as of a few days ago.
It isn't just the weight loss. He has trained his body to do things he never thought it could. He has been going on marathon-long walks several times a week, working to clear land, and this week to help build the Ultra Beast course he will be going through this weekend.
If you are interested in his story, here is collection of videos made this year.
We are so very proud of him. He has always been strong. Now he is close to invincible.
