Tough Mudder!

Tough MudderSorry for my short absence everyone, I have been away for a few days completing my first Tough Mudder! For those of you who haven’t heard of Tough Mudder, it’s a marathon/obstacle course designed by the British Special Forces. It’s 20km long and undertaken in teams usually, with obstacles such as jumping from heights, crawling through muddy tunnels and being electrocuted.

I watched Mario do it last year, and thought to myself that I might like to give it a go one day. I have always been terribly unfit, but the last few months I’ve been trying to get in shape, and signing up for the event was great motivation.

I know it’s not a DIY/craft project, but Tough Mudder is most definitely in the spirit of I can do that! Here are a few photos taken by the wonderful Jacinta, who was not crazy enough to feel like doing it herself!

We all felt great afterwards (although very sore and bruised). Bring on next year!

    Well done on finishing that! It looks impressive! (and just a little muddy! :p )
    Since the start of the summer, I’ve started getting fit and I can just about run 5K now, so I’m more impressed with you than I would have been before I started.

    This is definitely worthy of an “I can do that” post. After being the team “photographer” I can definitely appreciate how tough the mudda course is. I’m so proud of you all! If you work out how to get the mud out of your shoes that will also deserve another post ;p
