Tough Mudder — muddy and fun
Tough Mudder race today was a lot of fun, plenty of mud and COLD water. Obstacles were a lot of fun, and the “event vs. race” mindset had everyone in a good mood (considering!).
Today was the Tough Mudder Pennsylvania, at Bear Creek ski lodge near Kutztown, PA. I started with my friend Matt at about noon. We took off in a wave of about 150 or so.
We headed down the first slope, where I quickly went face down in the mud. It was not particularly tasty; mud further up the slope was better 🙂 About 10 steps later, my right show was swallowed up by the muck. I’m not one to give in so easily, and so I pulled it out, put it back on over my now creamy tan(!) sock. My foot was immediately chilled.

Matt’s gal Haley was able to follow us from place to place and get a number of shots. Once they make their way to me, they’ll go up here and on facebook. In the meantime, here is TM’s album from today‘s event.
