So THIS Is Fitness | Health, Fitness, Running & Weight Loss

Health, fitness, running, weight loss... it doesn't have to be hard! Take it from a guy who's been there and "gets it" - your host, Darrell McTague. Having lost 130 lbs and finished ULTRAmarathons, he's learned it all the hard way so you don't have to.

Tough Ruck was born from fire and baptized in bravery.

When the Boston Marathon was bombed in 2013... terrorists thought they crushed us. Instead, they showed the true colors of the City of Boston, its people, and its visitors. A number of those had been ruck marching the marathon - after ruck marching 26.2 miles, hearing the call, they sprang into action helping in any way they can. With increased security, they weren't able to ruck march the marathon in full gear again.

Rather than be defeated, they were re-born from the ashes.

Tough Ruck was born from the fire of the Boston Marathon bomb blasts and baptized in the bravery of the men and women who acted so quickly and instinctively to serve their fellow man. It's that exact spirit, honor, and love of their fellow man that makes Tough Ruck what it is. There's no way to truly describe it, you simply have to experience it. On this episode of the podcast... we introduce you to Tough Ruck and chat with those who made it happen... and those who rucked it this year.
