Barclay marathons was one of the sparks that got me interested in ultras ( besides goggins first book, ironically ). Something about the absolute brutalism and nonchalant attitude is so appealing to me.

> And somehow, his second book is BETTER.

Your note on the goggins book. I had the exact opposite thoughts! I almost didn’t finish it, tbh. It was so lackluster and uninspiring to me compared to his first one. It was nothing new, imo. Crazy we have such polar opposite views! There were some crazy new bumps in his road, but idk. It did absolutely nothing for me this time. I even got the extended audiobook with a few extra hours of β€˜podcast’ styled chat.
