Chad Trains with the College View Middle School Cross Country Team [Video]

And I lived to tell about it!  Lol!  My nephew Jacob is a cross country standout at College View Middle School.  And, last week, I decided to go to Yellow Creek Park and train with his team.  Now, here's the deal.  I run every single day.  But not like this.  This kids put me through the ringer.  After a two-mile "warm-up," we ran a series of 400M sprints.  And I was quickly gasping for air and warding off the angels.  Here's how practice unfolded.

I Tried To Get Off The Floor While Wearing The OPD’s 90lb Bomb Squad Suit… It Didn’t Go Well [VIDEO]
