I’m not sure if I can claim the title world’s strongest hair…at least thus far, but there’s no doubt that my hair is strong.
Here is the full story at least as far as my own performance is concerned.
I got set ready to pull. Well over a hundred people ready, watching and cheering.
I strained and pulled. The fire truck rocked forward but with its massive wheel it was difficult to get it to turn over.
After a couple futile attempts we took a break to make some adjustments. Changing the chains to get a more even pull on each side. Moving the truck to get it out of any dip it may have been in. The tires were filled with air the previous day but without a pressure rating they were skeptical of adding too much!
This time I knew I couldn‘t fail. I had flown across the US just for this. Once I started pulling I didn’t stop ‘til the end. Not only was this the biggest vehicle I’ve done but it was also the longest distance, my guess being at least 50 yards.I was so concentrated on the strain on my head and neck I didn’t even realize how much my legs were drained. You see when I stand up at the end, also due to being a bit light headed, that I nearly fall over.
Hope you enjoyed that. I know I did. And it won’t be the last, nor the biggest vehicle I pull with my hair.
P.S. Thanks to Andrew Durniat for filming this for me. You’ll see some more video of the event later, including when Andrew and I went head to head in kettlebell juggling. I think I enjoyed that even more than the hair pulling.
