World’s Toughest Mudder is the most extreme, imposing, pulse-pounding, heart-stopping 24-hour obstacle course challenge on the planet. 

The stage is set and the stakes have never been higher. Pick your podium, make the commitment and begin your training. The swampy shoe-sucking mud of the Sunshine State awaits.

Pro Tip: Pack your gaiters (and watch out for gators).

It’s been four years since I ran my last World’s Toughest Mudder, and I haven’t stepped foot on a Tough Mudder course to compete since. Hell, it’s been well over a year since I’ve touched an obstacle race in general.
.
I acknowledge the part of me that whispers “You know, that was a good chapter in your life. Maybe you should just leave it as it was and not try and recreate the magic.” I acknowledge that there’s some ego involved in that. And I know that, in the past, ego has kept me away.
.
But louder than that voice of ego is the voice that tells me that World’s Toughest Mudder is home for me: it’s how this crazy athletic journey of mine started. And in this whirlwind last year of mine, more than anything, I’ve recognized the importance of home. Of connecting with my roots. And of the people who mean so much to me.
.
So I’m SO excited to return home this weekend for 24 hours of mud, freezing cold, super flattering pictures, and all the weird sht that happens along the way. Let’s go play. tough_mudder #worldstoughestmudder #wtm2019

Have you ever had a day you felt you looked your worst, yet you had someone come up and compliment you? Found yourself surrounded by people who you 100% feel you relate to? Have you walked into a room filled with hundreds of people you dont know, but can strike up a conversation with any of them as if you've been friends for years? Have you been about to challenge yourself and do something crazy, and have thousands of people surrounding you telling you, you can do this, not asking you 'why would you do that?'. That's what Worlds Toughest Mudder feels like. I saw a post by someone saying if you go to WTM and cant run the full 24 hours you shouldn't be there, needless to say this individual has never actually ran a WTM, because if he had he'd see and know, the all inclusive community of WTM. You have the elites, you have those sitting at obstacles all night to help others, and you have people pushing as hard as they can and that may only be for 16 hours. Or 8. Or 21. Worlds Toughest Mudder will take place in Dallas in 2020, and I think you should come. Plus it's not a spartan, so don't think your penalties will be burpees, I promise if you run OCR you can do their 'must complete' obstacles (this year Everest penalty was the Mini Mudder course, headband included). So many people simply stay comfortable and don't find their boundaries. Dont be one of those people. Leave the house before you find a reason to stay in. Register for WTM before you convince yourself of a reason not too. And don't forget your wetsuit. .
.
As for my 2019 WTM, I still got a 40 mile training run in with a new great friend, got to ride in one those medical gators and get awkwardly naked in the med tent. #winning? Still a good enough time to return for round 3 in 2020. Who's coming with?

Its been roughly 730 days, 3300 miles ran between today and the last time I toed the start line of Worlds Toughest Mudder. There's been so much covered in those 2 years that it feels like a lifetime. This race has always scared the crap out of me, those minutes when you're in the starting coral and you're facing this epic race of pretty monumental proportions. Knowing you're going to be cold, hot, electrocuted, world reduced to a headlamp, beat up, mentally wore down, and for an entire day. It's always made me feel so small in that moment. This year, I don't quite feel that. Dont get me wrong, I'm wicked anxious for what can go wrong, but I'm focused on what will go right. I'm actually fairly confident in my abilities. For like the first time in my life, I'm confident I can do the mileage I have in my head & I'm looking forward to it. These races have a way of reminding you through every scrape, bruise and mile that you are alive. After all the crap of the last 2 years, we all need to be reminded just how that feels. 

If you could send positive vibes to every single one of the competitors about to head out on course tomorrow for the next 25.5 hours, I would love it.  To everyone out here about to give it your best, just hold on. When the event is over you either hurt because you gave it your all, or hurt because you quit, and the hurt from quitting will never disappear.  

As someone who lives in a notoriously flat prairie state, don't bet on me 😂, but I'll give it my best shot. Working on living a life I won't regret.🤘

Cold is probably my worst race condition,  so being cold and wet all day for pit set up is not the most confidence inflating thing. 😂 Here's to hoping we all make it 24 hours (further) injury free, help people find their best, and set personal bests.  No cliche plug about this being hard blah blah blah, its worlds toughest mudder. It's going to be hard. That's the whole point. Kick some ass, make some noise and I'll see ya'll on the flip side. ❤💪

Proud to have helped socal_spartan with some posemethod running tips a few months ago... conquering the #WorldsToughestMudder! 
#pose all day everyday!

Regrann from socal_spartan -  What a rollercoaster last weekend was at Worlds Toughest Mudder. For those of you that don't know what that is, it's basically running and overcoming obstacles (both physical and mental) for 24 hours.
The race kicked off Saturday afternoon at 12pm and the underdogs were on their way. The first hour was strictly running and we made it as far as the funky monkey before obstacles were opened. We completed our first 4 laps (5 miles/lap) without wetsuits and for some reason these were the hardest for me. Wasn't having a trouble running, just a hip flexor that didn't want to stop cramping while climbing over walls. Our pit crew was on point throughout the entire race and as we got into our wetsuits for lap 5, mgmeliteor came to the rescue with some pickle juice to cure my cramping issues. From there on I felt like a million bucks! As we ventured off into the night we continued to tackle the obstacles and climbs and pushed the 100 mile pace till about 10pm. At that point some stomach issues slowed the pace and laps began to get longer and longer. By sunrise, at the 55 mile mark, we found ourselves in the pit taking an extended break. We stayed there for a little over an hour and at about 7:30 I continued to finish 2 more laps and hit 65 miles. Not exactly the finish I had anticipated, but I enjoyed my time in the desert and you better believe I'll be wherever WTM ends up next year! Thank you to everyone who supported me throughout this journey. All your thoughts and prayers were definitely felt out there.

Weekend summed up in a 1 photo..

Focusing on the positives because up until the fall i felt fresh, smooth and in really good spirits.

Me and 1993jessicakate had the debate whilst on the flight home.. if you could change one thing about your race (pre or during) what would it be?

dee_jay_fox not applicable to you champ! 👍🤣

2023 we go again in Dallas, Texas!

Pain is temporary. Pride is forever.

Full write up to follow, but 70 miles and 38th place at World’s Toughest Mudder. It could have been so much better, but I fought to the end and learned so much. A five hour last five mile lap was ‘interesting’… especially when I got to 50 miles in 10 hours 😂

Thank you to my supporters and teams below, the Mudder Nation community, TMHQ, MVPs, Team UK 🇬🇧, and most of all Mike and Charli who were my amazing pit crew 🙏

Thank you so much to those who donated to parkinsonsuk… £1400 raised so far, it really got me through that last lap. Still time to donate to this amazing cause 🙏

So much to tell, but put this race on your bucket list.

I've been asked a lot if Im going to be at WTM this year, and that answer is no.  I gave myself this year off from OCR because after WTM last year, my heart just wasn't in it. So I'm hoping that by taking the year off, it will allow my head and heart to realign and to be able to put my heart and soul back into it. This year brought an entire upheaval of my life, and finding a new groove has been a bit of a challenge. But I'm feeling settled in, finding my new normal and starting to get that itch to be back out there, so probably, next year. But all ya'll crazies enjoy those 25.5 hours of mud for me 🤘

I'm also starting to get that 200 miler thought in the back of my head 😅😳 anyone else?

World's Toughest Mudder 2022 Champion 🏆 105 miles 24:27:19
•
My body aches, my flesh is mangled, but my spirits are high. I knew one thing going into this race; for better or worse, I put the most thought into it out of anybody competing that day. I obsessed about it like nothing else before. After all the preparation, I told the people closest to me that I could win, that I WAS going to win. I signed up for 2022 just a few short days after my first attempt in 2021. As soon as I decided to register, I was all in. I began making my plans to move out of NY and chase the dream full time in Durango, CO at The UltraHouse. Thank you for the opportunity anthonykunkel.
•
This race seemed so much tougher than last year. The obstacles appeared more difficult, the temperatures were in the low 30s for most of the time, and you never got dry. NEVER. It rained at the start and as soon as it stopped, the water obstacles opened up and kept you eternally soaked to the bone. Slowing down and getting cold would become the end of your race very quickly. I told myself, "don't forget you have a lifetime of those CNY winters under your belt. And you trained for the cold all year. You're ready for anything the weather throws at you." I still have a numbness in the tips of my pinky fingers, but it seems to be fading slowly.
•
I also had the best team. My people back in NY. The best training partners all year (tagged) and everyone else who came to visit us at The UltraHouse. They truly helped push my running to another level this year. The best pit crew around in escobar_ocr and arrranxa. Javi has some of the most experience at WTM and helped bring all of this together on game day. Aran was there every time I came through to get me back out on course as quickly as possible. No mistakes in the pit with these 2 working together.
•
Speaking again of Aranxa... doing this whole thing with me over the past 5 years. Agreeing to run around this country with me as I chase this pipe dream when I wasn't even a runner when we met. Well guess what, WE DID IT! Chase your dreams people. The alternative is never knowing..

It rained at the start and as soon as it stopped, the water obstacles opened up and kept you eternally soaked to the bone. Slowing down and getting cold would become the end of your race very quickly. I told myself, "don`t forget you have a lifetime of those CNY winters under your belt. And you trained for the cold all year. You`re ready for anything the weather throws at you." I still have a numbness in the tips of my pinky fingers, but it seems to be fading slowly.

I also had the best team. My people back in NY. The best training partners all year (tagged) and everyone else who came to visit us at The UltraHouse. They truly helped push my running to another level this year. The best pit crew around in escobar_ocr and arrranxa. Javi has some of the most experience at WTM and helped bring all of this together on game day. Aran was there every time I came through to get me back out on course as quickly as possible. No mistakes in the pit with these 2 working together.

Speaking again of Aranxa... doing this whole thing with me over the past 5 years. Agreeing to run around this country with me as I chase this pipe dream when I wasn`t even a runner when we met. Well guess what, WE DID IT! Chase your dreams people. The alternative is never knowing..

What a difference a year (and a decent shower) makes!
😂🙈
Throwback Thursday to last year‘s Toughest Mudder Midlands. And good luck to everyone racing TM Midlands and Philly this coming weekend. 💪🏻
Unfortunately I am not allowed to fly this close to my due date anymore otherwise I would have come out for some muddy hugs from my favorite muddy people.
🖤
Fun fact: I ran the 24h World‘s Toughest Mudder in Atlanta last year at 11 weeks pregnant. I really miss racing and rolling around in the mud, and I hope to be back for the 2020 season.

I keep this photo above my desk at work. It’s a snapshot of probably the most physically pained and exhausted I’ve ever been, on the tail end of running, crawling and swimming for 24hrs straight in sub-freezing temperatures and a lake nearly frozen over.
.
I keep it there to serve as a reminder of what I’m capable of - of enduring the pain, yes, but more importantly, of finding the sheer joy in these moments of being fully alive. It was through this race that I learned to live.
.
To everyone running tough_mudder World’s Toughest Mudder this weekend - trust that you can dig deeper than you ever imagined. Welcome the pain, and it will forever be your friend. #motivationmonday #worldstoughestmudder

Soooo much to say about this weekend’s event. So many lessons learnt. So many regrets and victories over 24 hours of racing. 

For now I’m headed home where I’ll recover from almost no sleep at all over 4 days. 

A year’s worth of preparation, nerves and training are over and it’s time to take stock and get ready for another season of racing. 

Before I heal up and get some much needed shuteye, I’ve already circled my calendar for next November when the #WorldsToughestMudder family will reconvene for another #sufferfest in Florida.

I’ve always preferred the purity of heat. Even putting a number to it, say an 8 out of 10 for discomfort due to a slight shiver, lightly disorganized thought processes, and cold skin just cuts deeper than a 9 out of 10 due to sweating so hard my entire body is slippery and my consciousness is threatening to evaporate out of the back of my head.. perhaps it’s trauma from winters in Chicago? Or escaping high altitudes in afternoon storms? My brain jumps to a projection about how much worse it’ll be when I get any colder…
But these days, mindfully peeling back mental layers while being more cold acclimated than ever, I’m accepting that I need to update my prediction formulas.
The Dallas Tough Mudder Infinity tested a lot of what I’ve worked on, as well as things I figured training would’ve addressed. I was able to temper my new physical skills in a fire hotter than I anticipate Worlds to be.
I was the guinea pig out there since I was out front and the course got nearly annihilated by a storm the entire weekend:
-waterboarded into a panic by my first pass through #cagecrawl (I’m assuming the hashtag will have a pic, if not Google; the middle three fences were bowed into the water), hacked up dyed red water the rest of the day..
-hit Everest, Block Ness Monster, Mudderhorn, Mud Mile, and loads of walls, all solo and in inches of rain.. that first lap solo was a trial and I was grateful for the training I’ve put in to handle these camaraderie focused obstacles without help, through contortions, creativity, and some sneaky grip work (looking at you Block Ness)..
-failed a bit and spent a Lot of time at obstacles, unlike Seattle; I got into my head and told myself I NEED to complete each thing, expending a Ton of mental energy.. Still some obstacles proved too much for me, like Well Swung that got caked in slimy mud and I failed the last two despite making the jump and securing my hands, plunk -into the water backwards, head first… Spent the time considering the lanes on these fail-able obstacles, did the penalties, then took another crack at um.
Training event stuff, and still 6:12:XX for 60K. 4 cold, muddy laps of the classic 15K Mudder 📿…

Our pit is ready for tomorrow. Not gonna lie we might just have the best one yet!

Can`t say enough amazing things about my friend herringjb pitting for myself, zackwiz1389 and Mark. I was telling Jen back in September that I didn`t have a pit yet for this year`s World`s Toughest Mudder and without hesitation she volunteered to help me out. I love my friends, this sport, and this community.

“Remembering what you’ve been through and how that has strengthened your mindset can lift you out of a negative brain loop and help you bypass those weak, one second impulses to give in so you can power through obstacles.” - David Goggins, Can’t Hurt Me

I remember this day. The day I finished my very first Tough Mudder. I remember so many people told me I wouldn’t. That I’d quit. Spoiler alert: I didn’t. And I did some pretty scary shit that day. 

That was 8 years ago today. 8 years ago I had no idea the journey I was about to embark on. No idea the people I would meet, the goals I would accomplish, the strength I would find. In all areas of life. OCR helped me become tough. It helped me find myself when I felt lost. It made me a stronger person than I ever could have believed. 

Here we are, 8 years later. About to compete in the World’s Toughest Mudder event- much like I was then, nervous, excited & filled with anticipation. It comes full circle this weekend. It’s been 8 years of training & racing. I don’t know if I’m really ready but I think it’s important to do things before we are ready. That’s how we grow. 

What I do know is that I’m gonna have one hell of a weekend with some of the best people I know and come out on the other side even stronger and wiser than I was before. Let’s freaking gooooooooo!
