Tough Mudder: Are You Tough Enough?
This past Fall, our good friend Chris Fitness told us he was participating in Tough Mudder. I had no idea what it was so decided to look it up…click here. Wow! I was amazed, shocked, then thrilled and ready to sign up myself! But, by the time we found out about his participation it was too late to train or register. So we did the next best thing, we went out to show our support for such an admirable feet.
Check out the video below. If you are a sports fanatic or just love pushing yourself to the limit, this is for you!
From the moment we arrived in the morning, you could feel the energy of these tough competitors. There were those that were focused, team oriented and those that were dressed in costumes from head to toe!
Luckily we were able to catch Chris just as his 12 mile journey in the South Jersey Tough Mudder competition began.
In order to get up the hill you needed help from the people at the top. It was a great display of team work to see complete strangers turning around to help their fellow competitors. It’s not just about you, it’s about teamwork.
This was such a fun but intense event. There were teams and individuals from everywhere, fanatics of fitness and sports ready to test their bodies and push them to the absolute limits.
We were there in November 2010 so it was cold outside and that made the fire pit a joy to be around! The smoke was thick but the fire was hot!
In the end, if you are lucky enough to finish, the only person that you are in real competition with is yourself. And at the finish line your blood, sweat, tears and aching body are rewarded with an orange Tough Mudder head band and t-shirt. Trust me, if you are lucky enough to finish that race, you will wear those suckers with the greatest sense of pride and accomplishment.
This is truly a great family experience that culminates with a festival of good food, great new friends, a huge bon fire, and your muddy shoes.
