Ran the ToughMudder Georgia this weekend... never been that cold in my life. We started and it was 42 degrees and at the finish line it was mid-30s. 13 miles in and out of the water and mud. Serious test of your manhood.
Anyone run this weekend? Ever done one of these?
Tough Mudder is not your average lame-ass mud run or spirit-crushing ‘endurance’ road race. It’s Ironman meets Burning Man, and it is coming to a city near you. Our 7-12 mile obstacle courses are designed by British Special Forces to test all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. Forget finish times. Simply completing a Tough Mudder is a badge of honor. All Tough Mudder sponsorship proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Your team finished?

yeah it was just me and two other guys running, but I read that the DNF rate was like 33%. I believe it. I saw some big tough looking dudes getting absolutely broken down.
My brother is planning on running one very soon. I've seen the videos and read up on it and it seems rough...
Hey kite... Thanks for stopping by...now when you can be polite and such, We would live to have you...til then...kindly gtfo
Oh and to Roy or whatever..congrats...

I didn't say anything awful...
You can't even say what's up to your old pal... That's awful enough
how's it going Barney?
I hate you
Did it last year. Going to do it again in May. Can't wait!
I was there. Started with the 9:20 wave on Saturday and finished in 3 hrs 20 mins. Just brutal, brutal conditions. Arctic Enema was cruel.
I heard they had a bunch of hypothermia cases on both days, and had to life flight 2 out on Sunday.
Also, I'm looking forward to the Tampa event in December.
3hrs 20min is an outstanding time... good for you. I was just happy to finish standing up. Do you know what the times of the top 5% were? Don't those qualify for WTM?
I know my brother told me he ran it in under three last weekend. He has been training for it though and was running ten miles on the reg.
Friend of mine did it this wkend too. Did you do Saturday or Sunday? She did her's Saturday. The last few miles were a beech, according to her.
The military does a version too (not military sanctioned, of course). It involves alcohol along with the regular tough mudder stuff.
Definitely a test for the testes.
I ran with the last group on Saturday (12:20). As the afternoon went on the cold started to set in... You just HAVE to keep moving. You're so tempted to walk and slow down because you're exhausted, but thats when you start to lock up and shut down.
I honestly can't wait to do another one. On their 2013 list on the website, it shows a race in Alabama. Trying to figure out where they'd have it...
I did the one in Tampa a few months ago, was a great test of mental toughness.
There's your problem.
Thanks. I'm over 40, have a desk job, and have been married awhile. So I wasn't in very good shape starting out. But I've dropped about 35 pounds and am up to 7 miles runs, 3 times a week. This was my first, but I'm planning to do Tampa this year, and Alabama and Pensacola next year.
Have no idea what the top times were. To be honest, when we finished the only thing we were thinking about was getting the hell out of dodge and warming up.
Did one with my little sister last summer in California. She's going to be going to Arizona State next year on a cross country scholarship and I am a competitive triathlete; we've both done sub 80min 1/2 marathons so without having to deal with really cold weather it wasn't really challenging. Don't remember our times, but definitely finished in the 5% and it was way under 3hrs. It was fun I guess but not really my style, definitely more about comraderie than actually competing. If you really want to test your mettle, I have a few buddies that do this annually http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tough_Guy_Competition and they are currently working on bringing it to the United States(starting in Utah). You have to be a true BAMF to finish a Tough Guy.
I did it Saturday at 10am with a large group of 7 guys and 2 girls. We all finished in just over 3 hours, although the girls skipped a couple of the later water obstacles. Arctic Enema sucked, but then it felt warm outside after about 20 seconds. Waiting on Mt. Everest was the worst part to me. The wind on Saturday was terrible, and just standing there, I froze up and couldn't move.
Going in, I thought we were lucky not to be on Sunday, but despite it being colder then, I believe it would've been better w/o the 20-30 mph winds w/ gusts up to 40 mph.
Guy that competed w/ my team last year wanted to test himself this year and went w/ the early crowd. He ended up tying for 3rd at 1hr 40mins and obviously qualifying for the World's Toughest Mudder. Dude is a beast. He had showered and changed, and was able to meet us back at the Electric Eel to follow us the rest of the way.
I thought the same thing on the Saturday/Sunday thing... Thought we got lucky. Turns out the wind made Saturday worse from all that I've read.
Everest was no good for me... I left with the last group on Saturday (12:20) and by the time we got there, there were like 10 folks at the obstacle. Which means not hardly enough to help get up and over. Instead of waiting around I tried to run up by myself a couple of times with no luck. My hands were useless at that point and I couldnt grab on to the ledge. So we ended up going around as to avoid the sun setting on us. Took us just under 4 hours total.
Thats awesome about your friend... I have no idea how someone could do it that fast.
Ran the ToughMudder in Tampa a few months ago, great time.
Next time I might get the Tat so the next race is free....
Great time though!

We had a bunch of spectators and a GoPro in the group. He put this together this week. Makes me cold thinking about it.
Thats a great video. I'm going to have to send it to my buddy who did it with me. GoPro cameras are awesome. We're going to have to figure out a way to get a hold of one before the next race.
