The “embrace the suck” patch was one of the first patches I bought for myself. I purchased it when I was training for my first GORUCK Challenge (class 053) and promptly put it on my GORUCK GR1. I did this to remind myself that I need to “embrace the suck” sometimes when things got rough in my training. For example I used to run stairs up in Bellingham by the campus. There’s something like 121 steps and I would do this 10 or 15 times. Whenever I put my ruck down I’d see this patch and pick it back up, head down the steps, and charge up again.
I haven’t used this patch much since then but I keep it in my patch book and thing about those times training for my first GORUCK Challenge when I see it.
You can purchase this fine patch at Amazon.
