Ok, I’ve been SUPER excited to share the behind the scenes story of Bret’s Guinness World Record attempt. He’s written up a wonderful post, but there’s a problem….it’s like 8 pages long on a Word document. Instead of guessing how y’all want to read it, I figured I’d leave it up to you! Please vote and let us know which you prefer! I will say, that when I read the post, it brought me to tears. Bret did a great job of summing up the last two plus years and all the training that went into the attempt.
The record Bret was trying to beat was the Guinness World Record for the fastest fireman’s carry. This means he has to carry someone over his shoulders, without putting them down, for a mile. The current record is 11:29. Today, Bret destroyed that record and ran it in 10:28. We have to send all of the evidence (video, photos, witness statements) to Guinness before it’s official.
