My sister and family are coming to New Orleans for jackson’s birthday. She signed up the whole family to do a 5K charity run in the french quarter. Now she just sent me a link to www.toughmudder.com because she is going to enter. What the fuck? When did I become the weak link? The world has rolled over on its axis! I was always the strong one. Now I am the pansy!
“BASIC FITNESS REQUIREMENTS
Tough Mudder will punish you, no matter your shape or size or current level of fitness. As such, we encourage all Mudders to increase their physical training in anticipation of the event. That said, the event is as much about mental toughness, grit, and camaraderie (and having a great time) as anything physical.
In terms of what you are looking at: each Tough Mudder course will have 10-12 miles of hills, mud, water, ropes, walls, electric shocks, and of course, fire. Check out the course map for the specific event(s) in which you’re enlisted to learn more.”
Electric shocks? Fire? What is this a Terminator movie?
