Tough Mudder

As many of you know, the fella competed in The Tough Mudder competition this weekend.  An 18 km. obstacle course designed by the British Special Forces.

Those who compete are required to sign a Death Waiver prior to competing.

    Based on the majority of the comments here, I’d like to recommend you start a second blog strictly for posting photos of the fella. Between this blog and the new blog, none of us would have any reason to look anywhere else on the internet.

    I am impressed. Heh, I couldn’t do it. I’d have to sign a death waver to join a Zumba class. Too out of shape. Congrats. :-)

    Hubby and I signed up for the Run For Your Lives Zombie run – 5K obstacle course where you get chased by people acting like zombies. Pretty sure you don’t have a sign a death waiver, but it will be a blast! And you get a free beer after.

    My daughter and son in law did it this weekend. They survived to tell the tale and are looking forward to next spring. Gray with mud they were very proud of their accomplishment that they trained hard for over 8 months. I looked after the 4 kids and 8 month golden retrevior along with my 165 lb. Newfoundland dog and my 14 week old ninja kitty! I deserve a Tough Mudder headband too! That of course while I managed my bakery during a huge street festival! Electric shock? Phfft! Nothing to it!:-) ….Congrats on finishing Fella. You can train past my house any day!:-)

    Our friends were in it and loved it!!! Crazy people around here!!!!

    How about the electric strings they had to walk thru?


  6. Sarah says:

    I was looking into doing that too! Then, the next morning, I woke up with a huge headache, and realized I had too much “spirits” the night before. Can’t wait to see how he did!

    Well..if you ask me..the Fella looks like the toughest Mudder there..Congrats Fella!!!

  8. Leona says:

    The “fella” did survive, yes?

    “Hello Mudder… Hello Fadder”…

    P.S. Isn’t this the run your mom trained for last year?

    Please tell me you have photos of the electro shock portion. Some of these races look like fun but the tough mudder’s electric wire shocking section looks just brutal from the videos I’ve seen.

    More importantly, how did you fare?

      I *do* have a few pics. of the electro shock. I’ll be doing the full post on the whole Tough Mudder on Friday or Monday. ~ karen

    Those pics are great! As for the Death Waiver, that wouldn’t stop me. They make practically make us sign them before the most routine medical exams at the wussy express care medical centers (most located in drug stores) here. Everyone is liability crazy.

    Although I do have to say that this looks far more dangerous (and fun) than a flu shot (yep, have to sign a waiver for those too).
