so i am not a super fitness guru, im just an averagly fit person. My little sister told me about this amazing obstacle course she is going to and I was amazed at how awesome it is! Its called Tough Mudder... literally, its a 10 mile obstacle course with army similiar obstacles such as ropes, jumps, climbing courses, mud, crawling... all types of awesome events. It also helps raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project, which is an organization that helps support wounded soldiers and their families. here is the website if you want to see a video or look into registering... toughmudder.com its all year long, in all different states. Im probably attending the october course in VEGAS BABY! mind you, you do not have to be ripped, not a marathoner to participate. just physically take care of yourself, but you probably do want to train a little with their suggestions before going. nothing huge. im not a good runner so that should explain some lol! ALSO.. there is a shorter couse JUST like it.. its called Warrior Dash. Its just as cool and just as fun looking but alot shorter, its only 3.3 miles long. Also they have this in different states. the website is warriordash.com I think it is a good, fun, AWESOME way to test your abilities and push you to your limits. Its a great idea to get out of state and go with some friends for a good fun time.. just thought i would share!! have any of you done this before?
