On Veteran’s Day last week, I had the honor of photographing the VMI rats (first year students) as they competed in their yearly relay races. I think they’d refer to them as “relay races,” anyway.
Rat Challenge, maybe?
Something like that.
Regardless, it was cloudy, crisp, and COLD; and I had a blast! I was a actually a bit sad that I had to photograph it because, frankly, I wanted to try everything they were doing. Everything.
Rock climbing, high ropes, army crawling under wire, scaling a wall, and a ton of other challenges.
Here’s a snapshot of how these guys and gals pushed themselves to the limits for this little competition.
