Hello, my name is Brent Johnson from London, Kentucky. I'll be answering a question from Jen from San Francisco, California. Her question is; "Were the obstacles intense?" She says, "I'm afraid of heights and I'm wondering what it's like."

I'm scared of heights to Jen, but it's not that bad. You're so pumped up, the drill sergeants are constantly motivating. You get up there you don't even think about the heights. You're just ready to get up and get over, just don't look down.
