I will say that pulling myself over the Berlin walls was pretty tough after mile 5 or so. I LOVED it and had a blast doing it with my buddies from work. The feeling of accomplishment is the best part.
Tips: stay away from cotton and wear gloves. Under Armor is your friend.
for some reason i thought the runs were a lot longer, thats not too bad but i can see how after 5 miles a wall could be an issue haha. appreciate the advice on the cotton and the gloves.
