Not sure exactly what it is about running 12 miles on a cold, windy day through the hills of West Virginia and stopping every so often to deal with one of 22 obstacles that I enjoy, but whatever it is, I like it.
Maybe the rush, the mental challenge that is required to run through electrified wires and crawl through mud (as well as the physical), but I gave it another whirl this past Sunday at Tough Mudder Mid-Atlantic.
Here are the pics. Videos below.
This one was tougher than Tough Mudder #1 for me because
- it was about 1.5 miles longer
- whereas NJ is flat, West Virginia isn’t
- it was colder
- it was windier
- it had more water involved
Still, the team performed beautifully (and I liked the fact that this time I had a group of people to do it with).
