I wouldn't do the Barkley because I'm not interested in doing stuff just because it's hard. I like long-distance running and I like navigating and moving actively outdoors, but the Barkley seems to be about finding the most miserable way possible to do those things, and I'm not interested in that.

See also, I write and maintain code for my day job, as does my spouse. Spouse has won the International Obfuscated C Contest; I regard the entire existence of the contest with vague bafflement, because I already spend enough of my time fixing bad and obscure code, why would I find it fun to make more?

I've power-walked a marathon and run a half-marathon and in both cases it was hard and I definitely did NOT like the last quarter or so of each, but I also liked how it felt to be able to do that kind of effort. "Being able to run a half-marathon again" is one of my driving goals for my recovering-from-cancer fitness plan.
