Bit of a thread necro.
I've dug out quite an interesting article from a year or so ago about mud/obstacle running and it's growth in popularity from BBC News.
It's an interesting article but what I find REALLY interesting is the comments posted.
There are quite a lot of (amusing) derogatory posts from people who I assume to be best described as "salad dodgers".
I've been doing a lot of races, both sprint and distance nowadays. 5Ks are pretty cheap and are always being held somewhere nearby.
Today I did the Zombie Mud Run again, but this time I tried to bear crawl/crab walk it. HIGHLY recommend you do this without gloves, because gloves are for pussies.
I did a mud run last weekend. It was pretty fun!

Gezere: paraphrase from Bas Rutten, Never escalate the level of violence in fight you are losing. :D
kettlebell workouts give you “cardio
without the dishonour of aerobics”.
Did a mud run barefoot last week on a course that had to have been 80% gravel. Now I have Hobbit feet.
****, thats spretty hardcore, how far did you run?

Any hotties DTF?
I think you might be putting people of this mud running lark.....
The Insane Inflatable 5K I did yesterday was almost comedically difficult considering the caliber of athlete that signed up for the event. Three miles in the sand during a late Summer heat wave. About a quarter of the way through, I looked back and realized I was the only one in my wave who was actually running the course (At least passed the first 100 feet). When I saw them coming back the other way, everyone looked miserable just walking.
I made a little kid go flying on one of the bouncy obstacles. He was climbing over one end when I jumped down and sent him into the air. He thought it was awesome.
