Get ready to root for Team Warmi in this year’s TriState Tough Mudder! This year, me and a large group of people have signed up to do the race – for many of us, including myself, this will be our first Tough Mudder race. I’m looking forward to this race because, actually, this will be my first official “adventure race” – I’ve done a bunch of triathlons and marathons and other running and biking races, but never a whole obstacle course race like this.
As our team training gets started, look forward to more updates on our progress.
Overview of the event:
Tough Mudder is not your average lame-ass mud run or spirit-crushing ‘endurance’ road race. Our 10-12 mile obstacle courses are designed by British Special Forces to test all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. Forget finish times. Simply completing a Tough Mudder is a badge of honor. Tough Mudder has raised over one million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project. WARNING: Tough Mudder is 3-4 times longer and MUCH TOUGHER than a typical mud run such as Warrior Dash. On average, only 78% of participants finish the event. Only those in reasonably strong physical condition should enter.
