DS2 survived Tough Mudder! It is basically a 20km obstacle course which people complete in teams. The idea is that you help each other cope with each obstacle rather than being totally competitive.
Here is some information from the Tough Mudder website:
Tough Mudder events are hardcore 18-20 km obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. As the leading company in the booming obstacle course industry, Tough Mudder has already challenged half a million inspiring participants worldwide. But Tough Mudder is more than an event, it’s a way of thinking. By running a Tough Mudder challenge, you’ll unlock a true sense of accomplishment, have a great time, and discover a camaraderie with your fellow participants that’s experienced all too rarely these days.
The obstacles have names like:
- Arctic enema (having to submerge yourself in a skip full of ice)
- Berlin Walls (climbing over sheer high walls)
- Boa Constrictor (bellying your way through pipes)
- Electric eel (swimming/wading through electrically charged water)
- Braveheart Charge (self explanatory)

This is DS2's team before the event (he is No, 3534, fourth from the right, his lovely GF is first on the right). Lovely white singlets, aren't they?
... and this is his singlet after Tough Mudder (he is first on the right). He has done a lovely dye job!
I am a proud mum (but relieved that there were no injuries).
Just one last thing, please enter my Mystery Giveaways, closes Feb 1st, you need to comment on my Grow your Blog Party post to be in the draw.
