"I participated in the first event and did well for my first time out. I am not a very competetive person in general but I can't tell you how badly I want to get that medal at the end of the Eagle Challenge Fitness Tour. Thank you guys so much for coordinating this...I can't tell you how much fun I had and how friendly everyone was!
"I would like to share my experience with the ECFT. In February of this year, I was at a pretty low point fitness-wise, and needed to do something extra to get myself in better shape. I overheard one of my classmates in Battlestaff talking about the USO 10 miler, and on a whim, I signed up to run. At the same time, I decided that I would run the Marine Corps Marathon in October. After the 10 miler, I looked out to the marathon, and realized that the events of the ECFT would be great motivators to keep me training for the marathon, as well as benchmarks of my progress. I have greatly enjoyed participating in the ECFT. I have met new people along the way, and even got my daughter in on one of the events (Rally on the Cumberland). I really appreciate the variety of events, and would have to say that the Brutal Fitness 5k was by far the most challenging. I hope that you continue to do this in the future. My only suggestion on how to make the events better, would be to have more events that could be done by teams. Perhaps you could have a relay division for the 10 miler, or have an event at the stadium that would be more track oriented. Thanks for doing the ECFT, and thanks for the opportunity to provide some feedback."
