Tough Mudder Facts
FACT #1 -You probably deserve a pint
But you have to earn it first. If it wasn’t tough, everyone would do it. It’s the tough that makes it great. And the teamwork. And the obstacles. And the fact that you just earned your pint.
FACT #2 – Marathons are boring
Running in a straight line doesn’t spike your adrenaline, but mud, freezing cold ice, electricity, and fire, sure as hell does. Why run miles on pavement, when you can do this.
FACT #3 – It’s Mudder Season
You don’t have to wait for another wedding to do something fun with your friends. Love is great and all…but so is Tough Mudder. Even better, you can invite as many people as you want and you don’t have to buy a gift from Ikea.
FACT #4 – Setting a goal works
Before you sign up for another juice cleanse, set yourself a real goal. It’ll be hard to sit around in your underwear eating cereal”, when you’re preparing for 10+ miles of obstacles.
