When you’re faced with adversity (and you will be), how bad you want it is what really separates the men from the boys, so to speak. For every physically superior guy I’ve seen give up, I’ve seen folks that the former would laugh at refuse to give up, and end up earning their prize. You have to keep in mind the reason you are there. I have to remind myself of this from time to time, and just that has been enough for me to just push a little harder, climb one more mountain, and a few times, manage to have things work out at the 11th hour, and honestly, the hardest hunts have been the most personally rewarding. For some unfortunate folks, a filled tag is nothing more than bragging rights or a check on a list, but when you keep pushing yourself, even when you don’t think you can go another step, you will not only be more successful, but it will have a much greater meaning to you. And I'd say even if you don't tag out, the experience will be that much more meaningful to you because of the effort—and willpower—you put into it.
