i do not whine, kids whine - tough mudder #2

So they say you're crazy if you do a Tough Mudder more than once,  I guess that makes me, Brad, and Jessi, quite crazy then (we also dragged Jessi's boyfriend Dan out for his first experience) !!! Our second Tough Mudder is in the books and we didn't even have to travel all the way to Canada to do it this time.  Let me tell you....

It was awesome. 

It was warm. 

It was long. twss

It was hilly. 

And it was MUDDY!!!! 

10 plus miles, 19 obstacles, and lots of rocks and hills that weren't even obstacles just part of the course.  The Wilson Ranches Retreat in Fossil, Or. is where the event was held and it was the perfect location for a mudder.

You can check out the photos they posted on their facebook album to get a better idea of all the events. 


Before the mud.


Pre-Race. So fresh and so clean, clean.

Stole that one from their facebook.  It was right as I was climbing out from the Arctic Enema aka ice water that we had to go all the way under in. Also lost the head band from the photo above in that obstacle. Whoopsies. 

Here is someone's Go-Pro Video of the race: 



And here are the after photos:




We made it!!!


So.much.mud. 


This wasn't even the muddiest we got during the race.


A beer had never tasted so good! 


I'm cool, I know. not


We got head bands and shirts and our pride for finishing a second mudder! 



Things to take away from Tough Mudder number 2: 

::It is a lot more pleasant to do when the weather is warm.  The water obstacles are refreshing, even if said obstacles may have cow shit in the them. Unlike Whistler, BC where it was 32 degrees and multiple obstacles involved the snow that was present. 

::They aren't lying when they say the electroshock is live. Got zapped more than once and it wasn't that great of a feeling, but I didn't black out so there's that? 

::Being able to pull yourself up over walls and obstacles is a big advantage. 

::But you definitely need teamwork to make the dream work to finish the race. 

::You should totally sign up for one in your area!!!! 

::The permanent marker is really hard to get off your face and body even the next day.  I might be rocking my number on my arms and legs a little bit at work today. 


HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORAHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Great pics! Love that you are still smiling at the end (or maybe because it was the end?). Electric shocks and cow stuff? I'm not sure which is worse!

You are badass when a criteria for the experience is whether you black out during it. Bad Ass.
