I hiked 5 miles yesterday morning and mtn biked 30 miles in the afternoon... I'm so extreme.... Actually that's just kids daily life now. I'm still 280lbs and don't give a fuck..... I do like the biker terminology better though, Clydesdale!! I have run a tough mudder course, it's not as easy as sitting on the couch and watching tv but uts definately not as risky/extreme as flying down a trail going 25-30 mph on a bike with trees branches smacking your head or taking 20' drop downs.

Also not as risky as hiking 10 miles into the mountains with the goal of a day hike..... Lots can go wrong and your far from help. The risk of summiting a peak with a steep slope is death.... I think so wolf has done it a few times this year on snow, I have done a few peaks here on rock.... So what, that's what's fun to us. But def more extreme than tough mudder.

Overall I agree with Timmytard, hard to believe.... There is nothing extreme about tougH mudder but it is a personal challenge.... If I get hurt on course I'm still pretty damn close to help and it likely will not involve anything major for injury.....

Come on Argo, not hard to believe. Just hard to admit for some reason.

I would say running a marathon is extreme. The human body is not meant to do this. Let me guess, you probably think soccer is gay and football is a mans sport.

Don't know who this is directed too, but I believe we are meant to do that.
A marathon is not extreme, there is no risk of losing your life. Difficult sure.
One wrong split second decision while running a marathon, will not result in death.
I don't believe there are any split second decisions that need to be made whilst running on a set course, unless taking the wrong way down a fork in the road causes a disqualification.

I watched a show about wolves vs big cats, I can't remember the exact cat they were talking about but anyway.
Cats can jump incredibly high because they have muscle structure built for explosive instant power, because of that they can't maintain that explosive power for more than a short time.

Wolves on the other hand, have similar muscle structure to humans.
They don't have that explosive power, neither do we. They are built for the long haul & can run for hours chasing something down. A cat could never do that, wolves have way more endurance than cats.
We can't jump 15 feet into the air, but we can run for great distances.

For the record, soccer isn't gay. I like soccer.
I love football, played till I was 21. It's the best team sport in the world, imo.
If you viciously tackled a pedestrian on the street, you'd likely go to jail.
Because they would be FUCKED UP, it is a violent game, meant for real men.
I can't think of many sports where a broken limb just requires a cast but you still play with a broken limb.

I can't believe that came out of your mouth. If it ain't a mans sport, could you please tell me which sport is manlier?

Go to a high school football game & say that. They aren't even men yet.
I doubt you make it out of there alive.

Just judging by the amount of old people that ski/snowboard I would disagree with you on that one

I think you are way off on that one.
What's the average age of a marathon runner?
My guess is late 30's, I could be way off though. I'm just takin' a stab in the dark.
Average age of snowboarders, I'd say late teens early 20's.

Again, I'm not sayin' this is correct. That's just my guess.

"manlier" :

mma
wrestling
rugby
surfing
mountaineering
kayaking


I'm not saying American Football isn't tough, but I'm not a huge fan of it, along with most of the world, and the above sports are a short list that involve the same or bigger risks without the body armor, and with more impressive skillsets to me.

They are big strong fast men, I'll give ya that.

A marathon is extreme in the sense that very few people can complete one and far fewer can be competitive. A small number of people do die in marathons, from heart attack, exhaustion, etc....that includes the first marathon.

Quote:
The Battle of Marathon

The Athenian Army was outnumbered 4 to 1 but they launched a suprise offensive thrust which at the time appeared suicidal. But by day's end, 6400 Persian bodies lay dead on the field while only 192 Athenians had been killed. The surviving Persians fled to sea and headed south to Athens where they hoped to attack the city before the Greek Army could re-assemble there.

Phidippides was again called upon to run to Athens (26 miles away) to carry the news of the victory and the warning about the approaching Persian ships. Despite his fatigue after his recent run to Sparta and back and having fought all morning in heavy armor, Phidippides rose to the challenge. Pushing himself past normal limits of human endurance, the reached Athens in perhaps 3 hours, deliverd his message and then died shortly thereafter from exhaustion.

So what DO you think is extreme? Snowboarding? The average couch potato might think you are I are extreme for snowboarding but we probably wouldn't think that of each other.

Some people might think rock climbing is extreme but if Alex Hannold saw me 'boldly' leading up my 5.4s and Elvis legging half the time, he'd wet himself with laughter.

Everything is relative.
