i did the tough mudder last year. it was the hardest thing ive done both physically and mentally. people on here who have never done anything like that try to play it down and make it seem easy, but they just dont have any idea what its like. i have to miss it this year because im not home when its happening, but in the future im definitely doing it again. it was a huge confidence booster and made me feel really genuinely tough. whenever im feeling shitty or sad, i look at my orange headband and say fuck yeah, im a tough mudder. i can do what ever the hell i want as long as i dont quit.
ive run half marathons plenty of times and i found the tough mudder about a million times more difficult. ive never gone for a full marathon, so i dont really know what its like, but the act of running really far in nice weather on a paved road is a lot easier to get your mind around than running through 6 inch deep mud up and down black diamond hills and then having to pick up a 40 pound log and carry it up a half mile hill, among other things.
