As some of you know I am a fitness junkie. The tougher, harder, wilder, and crazier something is I am all for it. I decided to give myself a serious challenge for my birthday so on March 13 I will be attempting the Georgia Tough Mudder 2011.
The Tough Mudder was inspired by individuals who wanted a challenging race at every step. Billed as the “Toughest Event on the Planet” this event is not a race because getting the fastest time is not the point. Surviving every obstacle through the eleven mile route while giving your competitors a helping hand is the main objective because everyone is suffering together. Check out the video below for a brief introduction on how dirty I am going to get:
The second reason I am running the race is because the Tough Mudder is a proud sponsor of the Wounded Warrior Project. With two of my cousins currently deployed in the United States Army and United States Marine Corps I am all for donating what money I can to the truly tough guys. If you feel compelled to donate to this worthy cause here is the link: Donate to Wounded Warrior.
Here is the route I’ll be attacking on the 13th. Did I mention that the obstacles were designed by British Special Forces Soliders? I’m especially looking forward to the electrified wires!
If anyone cares to join me in misery registration is still open until March 7! – Register for Georgia Tough Mudder
