Weight Loss Program
Looking down at a scale after 2 years of sitting in front of a computer and 199 pounds (25 pounds heavier than his college years), the first thought that came to Josh Forester's mind was "un un". It was time to turn things around. Josh decided to do an adventure race, since it was on his to-do-before-my-heart-stopped-beating list, and the training would lend way to weight loss.
Blue Ridge Rivalry
Josh started reaching out to friends and family, seeking out various running groups, and asking friends of friends if they wanted in on the action. After it was all said and done, he ended up with two teams for the 2007 Blue Ridge Adventure Race (4LP|-|4 1337 and Power Gel'n). Each team's goal: to beat the other team.
After Blue Ridge, there was a solid desire to do more. The two teams placed well and it was exciting to think about everybody's potential after adding further experience into the mix. After proving the point that experience is a huge asset in adventure racing, members of team Power Gel'n joined 4LPH4 1337 for future races, and the two became one.
Onward to 1337'ness
Driven by a love of the out-of-doors, a desire for competition, and a passion for adventure, team 4LPH4 1337 is surging into the future with dreams of competing with the greats.
