Tough Mudder: The Digital Viking of Fitness


 If you're never heard of it, check out the website and tell me it's not the most EDSBS fitness challenge there is.

For those who don't know: it's like an obstacle course on steroids. It's billed as "Probably the toughest event on the planet." It has lots of running through difficult terrain and lots of obstacles. I had some friends who did the Georgia course last month and their last 2 events were running through a field of 4-foot high flames (straw soaked in kerosene and lit), and "Electroshock," running through live wires that were dangled from above (some reaching as high as 10,000 volts). 

Why do I think EDSBSers would like it? First, it's for charity: the monies go to the Wounded Warrior Foundation. Second, the culture: when you complete the challenge, you don't get water or organic vegetables, you get a beer and a voucher for a free tattoo. Awards for "Best Mullet" and "Worst Costume" are given. It's not about competition: times aren't kept and comraderie is not only part of the pledge you say before the event, it's actually required to get through some obstacles. 

Anyway, I'm thinking of doing the Georgia one next year and was curious to see if anyone else had done it or would plan to do it in the future.
