If you don’t know the sore loser in your friendship group, chances are, it’s you. But that’s okay! Losing sucks, and it only means that you’re competitive.
While your competitive side might not be for everyone, there are plenty of activities you and like-minded friends can enjoy together so see who actually is the best.

If you and your friends want to take the competition into the outdoors, to find out who would win in a survival of the fittest situation, an obstacle course is a great way to have fun while also testing your fitness skills.

You could even make a crown and buy a personalized medal.
