I am getting ready (nervous) to compete in my first Tough Mudder Challenge. 10.8 miles of rugged terrain littered with 20 obstacles consisting of fire...electric shock....water.....and mud. This Pittsburgh Tough Mudder is one of many around the nation that attracts 12-15 thousand competitors. Why am I doing it? To see if I can would be the best answer.....and to feel a sense of pride knowing that at age 43.....I'm not as old as I sometimes feel. So at 9am Saturday morning...while you are enjoying that cup of coffee....I will be embarking on a mental and physical challenge the likes of which I have never seen. Good God!
For more on the Tough Mudder...take a listen to this interview with the GM of the Pittsburgh Tough Mudder......just one of 13 of these things that he oversees http://www.newsradio1170.com/media/
