Josh is a running addict. He wakes up early four to five days a week to run. In this video he faces his greatest obstacle the Brazil 135, a 135 mile race on Path of Faith in Brazil.

Completing such a massive challenge is an incredible achievement. Josh is a real inspiration.

From his blog:

As some of you probably noticed from the photos from Brazil 135, I wore a GoPro camera on my head for chunks of the race.

The headstrap mount was actually pretty comfortable and did a great job both on video mode and timelapse. It didn’t do so well at night, but that’s to be expected when it’s pitch black and the camera doesn’t have a flash or light (and I couldn’t figure out how to comfortably wear both the camera and a headlamp).

I borrowed the camera from some friends at Buzzfeed and after I got home, they used the footage to put together a short video of the race with some voiceover by yours truly.

The Spite House

Here we have another example of Barack Hussein Obama intentionally inflicting pain on the American people. If there is one thing the spiteful Alinskyite doesn’t understand its the resolve of the American people. This kind of thing only makes us stronger and more determined.

A marathoner says he was fined $100 for running in Valley Forge National Historical Park during the government shutdown.

John Bell, 56, said he parked his car on Sunday in a remote parking lot, not one blocked by a barrier. Bell, of Chadds Ford, said two rangers were waiting with their car lights flashing when he returned.

Bell said he plans to fight the ticket in federal court. He said he saw many other runners and bikers in the park.


Tyranny is a very real threat to Liberty and we are now staring it right in the eye!
