One Tough Mudder, aka Nice Knowing You All

Sooo….this is awkward, because I’ve kind of been meaning to tell you all something, and this may be the last time you ever hear from me.


This Saturday, October 6, I will be participating in…


Have you seen this event? It’s insane. I’m like 1 part excited and 99 parts terrified.

12 miles.

28 obstacles with names like Arctic Enema (jumping into a vat of ice water), Funky Monkey (monkey bars above mud, some greased), and Electroshock (no description necessary).

And at the end? I’ll be rewarded with a swill of pride, a beer, and an orange sweatband. You should ask me if it was worth it, because I’m not sold.


So if you don’t hear from me for a week or so…I may still be recovering.


If you don’t hear from me ever again…well, it was nice knowing you, and I hope they put my Tough Mudder sweatband in my coffin.

It was nice knowing you all.

  1. you wont get an orange sweat band if you dont finish

  2. I’d bite the dust on the monkey bars over mud. Can’t do monkey bars to save my life. Hell, I can’t even do monkey BAR – as in the very first one. I have no upper body strength whatsoever.

    Well, that either made you feel really awesome about your own upper body strength or struck the fear of God into you. Either way, good luck!!!! :)

    • I suck at monkey bars too, and they were wet and spaced too far apart. I didn’t even make it to bar #2 before I was in the water.

  3. Holy cow! Go you! I’m terrified about the Warrior Dash, and it’s only three miles!!

    • I looked at the Warrior Dash — you will rock it! I’m thinking about doing one too. There’s one here in TX in November.

  4. Good luck! I’m working 3 shifts tomorrow for the resale thing, and maybe dinner with a friend if I don’t go home and faceplant instead.

  5. OMG Dude I didn’t know it was 12 miles!! You are gonna kill it!! Super excited for you! You better post pics!!

    • It was awesome! I can’t wait until I actually have time to get my thoughts down about it — hopefully before I forget!

  6. Yay, YOU! Loved your FB tease pic…can’t wait to read your thoughts about it!
