America's Fastest Marathon Runner Attempts Carrying 140lbs To Top of Crested Butte

“My dad believed that running up mountains builds a unique kind of runner. One that was stronger, faster and as mentally tough as the hard rocks that lie within the mountain steps.” –Ryan Hall

If you enjoy watching endurance suffer-fests, crack your knuckles and press play as Ryan Hall, who holds the record for fastest marathon (2:04:58) & half marathon (59:43) in US History) attempts to farmer carry two 70lbs water jugs up Mt. Crested Butte. This is badass:

“This was one of the hardest and most fun physical challenges I’ve taken on. Carried two 70 lb water jugs for a nearly four mile with over 3k elevation gain ride up over 12,000 ft up Mt Crested Butte in Colorado. But what this piece is really about is the secret training methodology my dad founded, which my running career was built off of and the beautiful training ground the mountain provides with all its life-lessons taught through it’s majestic beauty.”
