    Thumbs up Tough Mudder

    Tomorrow is the day. I'm leaving here in a few minutes actually, and getting a hotel room nearby for the night.

    I'll add pics here when I get them.

    For now, here are some pics for my special hairstyle just for this event.

    For those unaware of what its about, here is the link to the site:

    Very challenging, and a proud sponsor of the Wounded Warrior Project. The two main reasons why I'm doing it.

    good luck.

    Remind me again what you do for a living that allows you to do that to your dome.
    That's not old school that's good school.

    Before and after pics. More to come as they become available mid week.

    LWolf, I am a remodeler, so most of my doo can easily be concealed with a hat. Of course the other option would've been to shave it right off after the event, which I am not doing.

    A few minor scrapes. Nothing major, and one in action photo.

    Nice. It was a blast. I strongly recommend that once you get helped to the top of Mt. Everest, you stay up there for a little bit, and try to help others up. Its a terrific experience all around. That chernobal ice bath is no joke though. Neither is the 20 ft platform you jump off of, or the electric wires.

    It definitely was everything I expected, and more. It was my first Tough Mudder, but not my last. I'm going to continue with these mud/obstacle themed runs.

    For STW, that course would be a cake walk.

    I'm attempting to locate a Warrior Dash in my neck of the woods. I missed the sign up date for the one in PA, now checking out OH and NY.

    I'm running the WD again this July in my neck of the woods, and possibly another TM in Florida in December with an old Marine buddy. I'm also looking into some different races next year, including one called the Spartan race where they don't even show you the course beforehand. You only know the distance, and how many obstacles, but have no idea what you're in for.

    Nut, did you prefer running in the mud and water and shit with the shoes with the toes, as opposed to regular running shoes?

    did you have the submerged tubes that you had to crawl/swim through? seems like there is just enough head room to breathe

    this will be the debate I have with myself over the next few months. to wear some old shitty shoes or drop 130 bones on a pair of toe shoes and hope that I like them.
