Chevy’s new video illustrates the benefit of a steel cage in a way that is thought-provoking—and hilarious.
I’m a runner. A long distance runner. I understand endurance, pain and strength. I also understand what it takes to run the 4 day Inca Trail in under 8 hours. We started at kilometer 82, ran almost 21 miles and climbed a total of 7500ft of elevation, ending at Sun Gate or Inti Punku at Machu Picchu. We relied upon our own strength there, as we have to every day as athletes. I also know what it takes to qualify for and run the Boston Marathon. As for Spartans, Tough Mudders, Ultra Marathons? No problem! Are my quads like steel? Well, it depends on the day. But I do know the importance of strong equipment—both on your body and off. The fact that “quads like steel” is something I aspire to mean that in my mind, “Steel is Good”.
When I saw Chevy’s video “Cages: High Strength Steel” by Silverado Films I was once again reminded that “Steel is Good”.
I have always been a fan of having reliable gear when you are out adventuring. Make sure your body is is fit, strong and reliable for any circumstances. Protect yourself inside and out. That is what struck me about the video. And Chevy’s “Cages” video also made me think differently about real steel, and the importance of a strong steel foundation. A strong body is good protection–for all sorts of things. High Strength Steel for High Strength Dependability—-I’d go with Chevy Silverado, too.
Thankfully, on our run, we didn’t encounter any bears. In fact, I’ve never worried about bears, which is probably why I found the video somewhat hilarious. After seeing the video…all I can say is that I’m glad I’ve never seen a bear quite as up close as the guys in Chevy’s video do. But if I did, I know that even my “steel” quads would be no match for the bear—-I’m not Wolverine after all. Get me a steel cage or a Chevy Silverado.
