I am signing up for the Tough Mudder in phoenix az january 14th. If anyone is interested in joining please let me know. I will be starting a team in the next couple weeks. Be aware that training prior to this is probably a good idea lol.

Here is the websites description:
Probably the Toughest Event on the Planet

Tough Mudder is not your average lame-ass mud run or spirit-crushing ‘endurance’ road race. It’s Ironman meets Burning Man, and it is coming to a location near you. 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. See our Training Page.

I am so going for this! I hope some of you out there will also. It's not about getting a perfect time or any time for that matter. It's about completing the race and realizing just how BAD ASS you really are:)
I'm taking the challenge, what about you?

    I am so glad to see more people from this site interested in the Tough Mudder. I am signed up with a team to run it in Sept at the NorCal Squaw Creek event. My husband did it last year. He's in incredible shape and he said the toughest part is the mental challenge you have to face. I love that it is a team event - definitely make sure your team is filled with people you know and trust to stick together as a team. It'll make a world of difference as you run through the electrical field!! emoticon

    I did Tough Mudder at Bear Creek in PA this past spring. Hardest physical challenge I've ever done. When I look back now at it, it was fun. But if I really try to remember those last couple of miles, it was torture. So now I like to think of it as just a great challenge as it should be. Have fun!
