|Look at all these happy people!|
As a Tough Mudder I Pledge that...
I understand that Tough Mudder is not a Race but a Challenge
I put Teamwork and Camaraderie before my course time
I do not whine - kids whine
I help my fellow Mudders complete the Course
I overcome all Fears
|I am in a lot of pain here.|
Kiss of Mud #1
The next obstacle almost directly after the last was called Kiss of Mud. Here you have to belly crawl through mud underneath low hanging barbed wire. This wasn't too bad as the muddy water helped warm me up some although I did sit up a little early and snagged my back on the wire a bit. But at that point I was full of adrenaline from Arctic Enema so I didn't even really feel it.
Next up was Spider's Web. This was a cargo net suspended in the air that you had to traverse. One of the coolest things about this obstacle was that other people were on both sides of the net pulling it taught so it would be easier for other participants to climb over. Everyone took turns doing this, one person would hold it, then climb over while someone else held it for them. It completely embodied the essence of Tough Mudder and it was very refreshing to see people helping everyone else out rather than being concerned with only themselves.
|I'm having fun! You can tell by the look on my face!|
