After climbing to the very tip-top of Mount Kilimanjaro, former Titans coach Jeff Fisher proclaimed it one of the most satisfying moments of his life.
For one, because he freakin’ did it, along with former NFLers Tedy Bruschi and Chad Lewis (which is just awesomely impressive). For two, because he did it for the Wounded Warrior Project, whose mission is to honor wounded soldiers.
“Words can’t describe what it really is like,” Fisher told the NFL Network. “Add to that the fact that we did it with the soldiers, the Wounded Warriors, was very, very impressive. It was not an easy thing. I checked around as I was preparing and had a couple of guys tell me it was like running a marathon breathing through a straw. “
Fisher said the group left for the summit just after midnight on Wednesday, and six hours later, they reached the top, where they got to watch what was, I’m sure, an amazing sunrise from the highest point in Africa.
