TRY to understand what a savage @davidgoggins is. The man runs the #moab240 it’s a fucking 240 mile race, goes off course for 7 miles by mistake, so he has to double back, gets back on track and at mile 200 (214 for him) he gets pulmonary edema and gets pulled from the race and sent to the hospital. They release him, and he gets right back out there and finishes the race. FUCK.

You’re right brother, they don’t know you.
The mindset @davidgoggins is displaying here is a very foreign concept to most. Some will second guess Goggins for leaving the hospital to return to the mountains and finish what he started, and they’re right. For most humans this wouldn’t be wise. But Goggins isn’t most humans. He’s one-of-a-kind and a true savage. I certainly can’t speak for David but I don’t believe this type of effort is new to him, it seems this might just be a microcosm of his life in a few days. If you haven’t walked in his shoes it’s not really your place to judge his decision.
This year’s Moab 240 has no doubt been a hell of a roller coaster for this man but I’d guess he’d say after all this that he’s loved it and wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
It’s not supposed to be easy. The trials and tribulations one goes through running 240 (255 for Goggins) miles in the mountains on little sleep can’t be explained with words, only felt by those doing it. It’ll have you second guessing all your life decisions and future plans. If you like pain, it’s some of the most beautiful pain ever.
And, I don’t know about you but having the Rocky music playing in the background and him saying, “I’m back mother fuckers. You thought you had me. You thought you had me down,” gave me legit chills. Respect to the legend. 🙌
