Tough Mudder

In celebration of his upcoming birthday, my father is taking on Wisconsin’s Tough Mudder today, a hardcore 11.8 mile “obstacle course designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.” Though my dad is an experienced triathlete, this is going to be a toughie, boasting obstacle titles such as the “Electric Eel” and “Firewalker.” Seeing as how the longest race I have ever participated in was a 15k, (and sans climbing walls and barbed wire laden mud pits), I am in total awe of my pops. I couldn’t ask for a more inspiring father! Happy birthday Dad, and good luck to all you Tough Mudders competing today!

  1. What an awesome dad!! I recently did tough mudder And omg it was amazing, physically and mentally challenging but such an achievement. Awesome environment and the feeling of accomplishment is just WOW! Wishing him all the best. I preferred the electric shocks to the ice bath. Ice bath is terrible!!
