Tough Mudder Arizona – 2012

So about six months ago, I heard about an event so crazy I didn’t believe it at first.  I was intrigued, so I went to the website to check it out.  My first thought was, “Who would want to do that?” My second thought was, “I would!”  Tough Mudder claimed to be one of the “Toughest Events on the Planet”. 

“Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.”

“To get through mud, fire, ice-water, and 10,000 volts of electricity you’ll need teammates to pick you up when your spirits dip. To get over 12 foot walls and through underground mud tunnels, you’ll need teammates to give you a boost and a push. Tough Mudders are team players who make sure no one gets left behind.  All participants are asked to join us in reciting the Tough Mudder pledge before starting each event.”

My good friend, Leo, did a great post about the event.  Lots of great pictures.  Check it out at zitoman.blogspot.com

We also carried two GoPro Hero2 HD video cameras.  Those things can really take a beating!  I was very impressed with the overall quality of the video, even on a big screen.  Check out the video on the Gallery Page.

As you can see in the pictures and video, it was a muddy mess of fun.  It really pushed our limits and made us work together.  I think we caught the obstacle racing bug, as we are all looking forward to the next one.  Need some motivation to get in shape?  Come join us!
