Tough Guy: "It was tough" by Andy SmithTopic: Esendex news
Tough Guy, in my eyes at least, certainly lived up to its name. We were told before starting that over a third of people wouldn’t finish the course, therefore 2 out of our 6 would statistically fail to complete it, unfortunately this stat bared true.
The course was much tougher than I had expected or anticipated. We stuck together, helped each other out and for most of the course we had a lot of fun. It was the unbelievably cold conditions, and constantly going in and out of freezing water that gradually took its toll on us. And there was also the electric shocks we received and the general tear-inducing fear and pain.
For those tough enough to finish the challenge, they received huge cheers and a nice big brass medal. After the finish line we were given a hot chocolate, the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had.
Congratulations to everyone who took part and a huge thanks to all the volunteers and staff that made the event possible.
