Being a Mudder℠ is all about taking on the obstacles in your life and the enormous sense of accomplishment that you feel when you overcome them.
Before turning 30, Sherry Bullock was looking for a new challenge to celebrate the milestone birthday. A mother of two girls, ages seven and three, she is the pillar of strength they look up to, and learn from. So when a friend asked her to join their team at Tough Mudder Virginia, she knew she couldn’t say no.
Teamwork makes the dream work and at Tough Mudder, that’s a fact. The fourth line of our Mudder pledge, ‘I help my fellow mudders complete the course,' demands it. But what if the sweat you drip on the course could help others off it?
A self-described mom, wife, teacher and adrenaline junkie, Kirby Smith is a force to be reckoned with. She prides herself on being a stubborn, independent, strong woman. Looking for a way to get in shape and stay motivated, she formed a small fitness group with co-workers. After a few months of sweat sessions, she was ready for her next challenge and pitched the idea of running a Tough Mudder to the crew. All but one told her she was crazy, and it was in that moment she knew she had to prove them all wrong.
