    I just did the Tough Mudder in Vermont this past weekend and that was the most fun I ever had. It took longer than the other Mudder events since this one was all uphill and downhill and was more a test of will power than endurance for me. Especially when it came to diving into freezing cold water.

    For the most part I'd say be able to run a half marathon and just have a good strength to bodyweight ratio. Most I ran before this race was eleven miles and the course was ten miles. I did lifting months prior, but a month before the race I focused on the standard push ups, pull ups and chin ups. One thing to keep in mind is whether you're on a team or not you're not doing the Tough Mudder alone. Each obstacle the person in front of you helps pull you up or hold a net or whatever, and then you'll help the person behind you.

    Overall I did pretty well. Now I'm looking into doing some of the harder Spartan Races or a harder Tough Mudder.

    The one in Indiana is just over three hours away from Dayton and I believe that is in late Aug.

    I train for it.

    Starting going like "Yeah, I'll do it in September".

    Now, after a few months of bulking up...
    I still plan to do it in September.
