July 15th, 2017 – Today is the day of my first Tough Mudder! When I first heard about this race from my OCR friends about how challenging this course was I instantly signed up for the next upcoming race. I managed to show up on the course about 10 minutes prior to my start time, but unfortunately did not start running until an hour and a half later.
The race itself was about 11 miles, and happened on an extremely hot and humid day. While it was initially fun, the lack of water stations, long wait times, and non-challenging obstacles kind of made the entire experience lackluster.
After finishing the race I sipped on some Powerade and washed up then left off with some friends to grab a deep dish pizza.
