The problem I have is I'd be the guy that snapped an ankle or blew out a knee in the muck.

I'm sure it's great fun.

I have done the adventure race thing and had a blast but I'm not sure I'm ready to risk injury to see some muddy hot chicks. Hmmm, maybe I'll go with a cooler and camp chair...

then again...

For any of you that have done this just how fit do you have to be?

I'm in decent shape and am seriously considering doing the October event. That gives me 4 months to prepare.

If we get enough people, we get a discount.

As far as fitness goes, I'm going to put a regimen together to get prepared for this. Let me know if you're interested.

Yeah, I think they might be tied into the same organization. The ToughMudder is supposed to be twice as long! If length is unimportant to you , then maybe the spartan race or warrior dash is suffice.

doubtful

people break bones and injure themselves all the time in every day boring life. I know, i take x-rays at an orthopedic clinic. Everyone's story sucks. If i am going to injure myself, it will be having fun an making memories!

I treated my body like a punching bag in HS football and glad I got hurt and did not get to play in college...broken hamstring saved my skeletal structure.

Still...i 'get it' cuz you can get hurt on a scooter too but that just doesn't look like near as much fun compared to riding on two wheels....but I don't have $7k to drop either.

..i just don't want you taking x-rays of my wife and would prefer she not do this.

Anybody doing the event in October in Paige? I'm planning to do it and going to drag my wife kicking and screaming too.

She's a bit apprehensive after watching the videos on the site.
