Sami: I laughed when I heard Will at morning run ask “have you seen any bears….not including Zack?”
Lucy: During Sufferfest Jabes added a push-up to the inch worm stretch and said “this is what savages do”
Also, girls in New Dorm were exchanging phone numbers/insta accounts with each other and were talking about how much they’re going to miss each other and how much they don’t want to leave ELITEAM :(
Morgan: I was inspired when Christian told me during Sufferfest that “i’ve never sweat this much before”
Jess: I loved watching Alice beat all the fourteen year old boys in the hill sprints…girl power.
Also, I was inspired by Pippa's enthusiasm for an activity in Sufferfest she said, “I love the river walk! I wish we could do it again”
Devon: My team insisted on doing some river burpees and push-ups before walking back down the river during the river walk challenge!
Tasha: At first some of the girls in my group didn’t want to get wet. So they tried to opt out of the river pushups, but in the end Finn, Lily, Mayson and Anna said “oh well”, hopped down, and did them anyways.
Julia: I walked in on my entire dorm fake crying because they didn’t want camp to end.
What was the best part of Sufferfest…and what was the toughest part?
James: The best part was finishing the 100 rock squats because I felt like it was hard but productive. The toughest part was the last set of burpees. I was feeling the tickle.
Peyton: Best part…the end! Toughest part…burpees.
Lily: The best part of Sufferfest was the Russian twists with the rocks. The toughest part was the push-ups.
Pippa: The best part of Sufferfest was the river walk and the toughest part was the 100 burpees.
Ellie K: The best part was the sandpit sprint up the hill and the hardest part was the burpees.
Aiden: The best part of Sufferfest was the hill sprints and the worst part was the rock squats.
Cal: I liked the river walk and the hardest part was the burpees.
Maddie: The best part was doing it with everyone and the worst part was the push-ups.
Gabe: The best part of the Sufferfest was the river walk and the toughest part was the burpees and rock exercises.
Alice: The best part was the hill sprints and the worst part was the planks.
Sara: I thought the best part was when we did the rock squats because it wasn’t too hard but it had a fun struggle element to it when you did it 100 times. The toughest part was when we did 100 pushups because I struggle with those.
Ella: The best part of Sufferfest was knowing that everyone else was suffering with me. The toughest part was getting through all of it.
Addie: The best part was the hill sprints and squats and the worst part was the push-ups.
Gwynn: The best part of Sufferfest was the box jumps and the worst part was the rocks.
Grace: The best part was the box jumps and the worst part was the burpees.
What did you think of the Sandpits today? What advice would you give to people who are running Sandpits for the very first time?
Jabes: Sandpits were dope as usual, I would recommend keeping your intensity up throughout the course.
Peyton: Sandpits was a lot of fun. If you're doing Sandpits for the very first time just go all out and it will be fun.
Lily: Sandpits were awesome! I loved the course. I would tell people who are doing it for the first time to be early for the turns and put power into them!
Pippa: I thought the sandpits were very fun because it was fun to do it with my friends. Advice I would give to someone for their very first time is to just have fun!
Ellie K: They were fun!!) I would tell them to be careful on the turns when you are going fast.
Aiden: The sandpits were awesome and advice I would give is to always be quick on your feet.
Cal: I liked the sandpits and I would tell people to be early on the turns.
Maddie: It was my first sandpits and I’d probably say just go for it because it doesn't hurt if you fall!
Alice: I live for Sandpits! I would tell them to go for the high line and at the flats to sprint it out!
Sara: My advice would be to have quick feet and to go all out on the speed aspect because the times in the end are very close.
Ella: The sandpits are challenging but fun. My advice for the first timers would be to forget being cautious and to just go for it!
Addie: Sandpits were awesome and my advice would be to wear your worst sneakers.
Gwynn: They were fun, I would tell them to start slow and get to know the course.
Grace: Sandpits were fun. I would tell people to keep a high line around the gates.
Jabes: a workout for the body and mind.
Peyton: gnarly mannnnn.
Lily: an awesome camp that taught me a lot such as: eating right, staying in shape, handling emotions and sports psychology.
