Photos from Ruck and PT in Washington DC's post 08/20/2022

Went on a hike with my 45lb plate from Rosslyn to Roosevelt Island, and finally down to Columbia Island Marina where I grabbed some lunch. Then I looped back up.

Good thing about the bar at the marina: they have iced water stations inside and outside, so I was able to have something better than the lukewarm water in my nalgene 🤢 haha

Lincoln Memorial to Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Maybe you’re taking advantage of the nice weather? Take a walk on scenic National Mall, Tidal Basin, stop by Columbia Marina for drinks/food/restroom, Roosevelt Island, Georgetown/Exorcist Steps, and downtown to the White House.

The timing is what did it for me.


2022: Prioritize.


I want to do a birthday ruck and PT. So I'll just do however many miles starting at 9am until I find a place to get brunch/lunch/food.

Meet me at our spotttt~

Come join GORUCK Nation for the first challenge of its kind. Ruck the -Miler on October 10 in Arlington, VA with our friends at who are official partners of this race.

Spots are limited and it's the only rucking division offered for this race. Link to reserve your bib before the cutoff on September 3:


This year’s rain was crazy, so let’s see what next year does. Snow?


Tossed a PVC poncho, extra socks, and extra ziploc bags into my rucksack. Might as well be prepared.


If you’re rucking with me, I’ll have a box of masks just in case you try to go inside a business or building during the 31 miler. Better to be prepared than not.


SUNDAY. Last day have a shirt waiting for you at the start when you register.

Let’s go.

For those planning on attending the DC Ruck... Sunday July 25th is the last day to register if you want to have a shirt waiting for you at the start.

I’m not trying to be that page that talks about GoRuck like ALL the time, but this page was created also because I was training to do one of their harder events and there were people in the area also training for different levels of events.

Now on the horizon, I have the 2021 DC Ruck with 31 Miles for 31 Heroes, the Marine Corps Marathon, and a fun ruck 20-miler.

Anyway, my GORUCK Rucker (v1) is so broken in that it’s still going to show up on this page and remind you that GORUCK makes pretty decent rucksacks.


Hope you get in on this! I’m thinking of joining a main group and won’t be “going my own route”.

See you there!

Today is the last day to buy your entry into the 2021 ruck at the current prices. The will go up a few bucks tomorrow so make sure to register today!

We truly appreciate any support!


Everyone was losing their minds over gas shortages this week, but I’m still over here walking to all the things.

Maybe that’s the benefit of living in the city. And also having a bike. Remember the bike shortages?

Anyway, here’s a Zoolander clip.
