Running your first 5K is amazing. There’s nothing like committing to a goal, working your tail off to get there, and blowing your expectations out of the water. Even if you aren’t the fastest out there (or even close), the sense of accomplishment and confidence you gain from following through on a commitment is unmatched.
But why not take it a step further? Pushing yourself to not only get outside and be on your feet, but to get dirty, to absolutely exhaust every muscle in your body by persevering over obstacles you never thought you’d conquer, and to connect with other unique, driven individuals in a transformational setting is an experience you will NEVER forget.
If you’re ready to change your life right now, here’s the full U.S. 2023 Tough Mudder race schedule (or you can view the schedule online here).
