Last year a bus full of my fellow gym members loaded up a coach bus to head just over the boarder into Wisconsin to join a bajillion crazy people for the Tough Mudder!
I thought that they were all crazy and total maniacs! I at the time I didn’t see myself doing something like that, EVER. After some running buddy peer pressure I signed up!
Last Saturday was the day!! Somerset Wisconsin 10-ish miles and 18 obstacles later I earned my orange headband!
Let’s talk obstacles shall we? There were 18 total, if I remember correctly. We had an obstacle even before we crossed the start line! We all had to get over a 6 foot wall to get into the coral and get pumped up!
My friends at the wedding knew that I was doing the tough mudder in the morning and I brougt my headband with to show off during the dance! I got some strange looks but my friends knew and were proud! 🙂
A day later my legs looked better than the felt after I got home yesterday! + my delayed ( because I don’t drink and drive, and there was free wine at the wedding DUH!) celebratory drink post-mudder.
Last night my friend Dawn ask me if I thought I’d want to do the tough mudder next year, I responded with “ask me tomorrow”. It was fun, it was hard, and it was exciting to complete! I just wasn’t sure.
(Edited Note: Don’t ask me why this was sitting in my drafts for 2 months. The tough mudder MN was the weeeknd of July 22, and I am just posting now!? Don’t ask why!!)
