Ain't no mountain high enough!

Ain't no mountain high enough! 

Today my unit woke up early in order to prepare for our basecamp to hike up to mount jack. We had to walk from camp C4 to the bottom up of the mount jack trail which was in camp A ( that is quite far away if you've seen the summit map).  Our hike up the mountain was long and tiring and took us a good hour or so, many felt like it was never ending. Once up at the top we ventured off to try activities; there was many activities but there was one specific one, the spartan race. Technically it was classified as spartan kids as it was 1 or 2 mile course however some of the obstacles where adult ones, and with the heat and terrain it definitely felt hard enough. I took part in the team one and started off with the 2 mile race however like many others I couldn't get over some of the walls and our leaders had to help lots of us over the walls. The obstacles included; rope climb, monkey bar rings, log carry, bag flip and the walls to climb or jump over. Once we did this one, a few of us decided to do the one mile race afterwards, however once doing it we turned it into another 2 mile race. After that we were dead and extremely tired. We received a spartan scout challenge at the jamboree dog tag medal and as we completed the race twice we received an jamboree award badge. Then we had to head back down the mountain which was  just as bad and long as the way up mostly due to our sore and tired feet. This took up our day except form having dinner and hanging out in the evening.
