Any of the locals want to join the Muddy Helmets in this (or next really) year's Tough Mudder?

This just might be the event that convinces me to train. Marathon training, while great for my well-being, was very anti-climatic. That said, there's no way I could train and even be close to ready for April.

The last two events sound insane, the live wire thing and fire thing...are those real? I kinda just browsed through it, sounds too crazy for me though.

Hardest 11 miles I've ever traveled. I don't think I've ever put my body through that kind of workout. Beaten, sore, cut and bruised this morning.

The live wires threw my bud down into the mud. I got lucky and only had two shocks.

I'll be running the Warrior Dash on June 11th. I believe it's very similar in nature to Tough Mudder, only this race is much shorter. 3.5 miles I believe. I'd like to do one of the longer races in the future though.

At the 3.5 mile mark while running through the woods (and after a number of beatings) there was a huge banner saying "WARRIOR DASH FINISH!!! But you're doing the Tough Mudder - You still have over 8 miles to go!!"

I saw there were spots available for the Sunday Dash - I may sign up for that.

Head, what kind of training, if any did you do for Mudder? Are you generally a very fit person or did you train up?

Generally pretty fit for an over 40 guy. I didn't actually train for it specifically. Prior to signing up I was doing my normal 3-4 mornings at the gym and running a few nights and weekends (usually tossing in a 10 to 15 mile run in on Sunday morning). Around November I started having issues with a planter's heel which really curtailed my running over the next few months. I actually did nothing for the two weeks leading up to the Mudder and was really only getting one run a week in to allow for recovery time for my foot between prior to that. I was a little worried going in.

I felt really good up until about the 9th mile and then I started to really feel it in my legs (and on that last mile you have to carry a log up and back.. just cruel). If I do this again next year I will make a point of running more trails and hills. My general route did not prepare me for running up the required elevations over and over and over and over again.

Even though I stand up for long periods of time and never stop working....for me otherwise an endurance challenge would be seeing how fast and I can run to the fridge to grab a beer, find the remote, and remember what I was watching before the commercials end. You guys are bad motherfuckers.

I had a great time at the Mid-Atlantic Tough Mudder on Saturday. For me, the greatest challenge was dealing with the weather. It was 45 degrees and we were soaking wet. One guy in our group was very under prepared so it took way longer than anticipated.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was also there.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/ey...c-tough-mudder

Unfortunately there was a death during the race. It happened at the "Walk The Plank" obstacle about 15 minutes after I went through. It requires you to climb a wall then jump down about 15 feet into a pit of water. That obstacle freaked me out the most. As I stood at the top looking down I thought about how easily somebody could get seriously injured.

Damn... you hate to see something like that. I saw a few guys that required help getting out of the water after the jump when I did it (not encouraging when you're scaling the wall to the platform).

They were pretty good at only sending people one at a time to ensure they surfaced and had a number of divers in the water around the landing area. That rush of cold was a shock (not to mention trying to swim with sneakers). I made a beeline for the guide rope.
