Blue Hills Outside Boston

Post  jane5yan on Mon May 09, 2011 10:16 am

Tedy Bruschi started his training for Mount Kilimanjaro by working out on the stair-climber and treadmill in his hiking boots.
The retired New England Patriots star linebacker, ex-Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher and former Philadelphia Eagles tight end Chad Lewis will take on Africa's highest mountain next week. They'll be joined by four injured service members to raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project.
The closest comparison for Fisher is he ran a marathon in 2003. Bruschi was such a novice he didn't even know what to do with all the straps on the pack sent to him by sponsor Under Armour. He started his hiking with his wife in the Blue Hills outside Boston -- top elevation 635 feet -- wearing a weighted vest.
Bruschi went to a nearby high school and ran on the track and up the bleachers wearing the boots and that vest. From the NFL draft, Bruschi had to call his wife to ask her to buy him some trekking poles.
Bruschi got some more serious training on the peaks of New Hampshire. His guides were longtime friend Randy "Zip" Pierce, a fervent Patriots fan who is an accomplished hiker despite being blind, and Pierce's guide dog.
Fisher has been cross-training -- biking and running as well as hiking. He went to Colorado last weekend.
