Tough Mudder Tampa Full Race Sunday December 4
After completing the Warrior Dash and the 8 mile Super Spartan Race, I considered doing Tough Mudder but was hesitant because of the 12 mile distance and the fact that it is such a hardcore event. Tough Mudder is advertised as being "Probably the toughest event on the planet. Finally, I decided just to go for it and although I'm feeling a pain in my legs like I've never felt before, I'm happy to say that I earned my orange head band. My favorite obstacles were Mt Everest (the vert ramp/half pipe0 and Funky Monkey (The monkey bars). My least favorite obstacle was the electroshock therapy.
There are 3 Tough Mudder events in Florida in 2012. Tough Mudder Jacksonville, Tough Mudder Miami, and Tough Mudder Tampa. I'm sure I will probably do at least two of them.
Other Mud runs's I have completed

Tough Mudder Pledge:
"As a Tough Mudder I pledge that...
I understand that Tough Mudder is not a race but a challenge.
