I felt like I slept in the washing machine, but who knew Obstacle Course Races could be so much fun?!? I certainly didn’t.
12+ miles, mud, freezing water, 26 obstacles, more mud, electric shocks, electricity and mud combined. It all sounded like a *really* hard way to not even run a half marathon. But it was loads of fun. Running in a team was part of it, but also the camaraderie with other runners at each obstacle. Being helped and helping others through/under/over obstacles comes with a gift and receipt of kudos that you don’t get in road races.
I’ll certainly be looking to enter tough Mudder again next year. Maybe with a double Mudd challenge – two times around the course in a day. Marathon distance obstacle course, sounds doable, right? Or idiotic…
