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.
Dear Mudders, World’s Toughest Mudders, and Future World’s Toughest Mudders:
It’s that time of year again. The time of year when all of you crazy Mudders start deciding whether you want to put your body through one of the most challenging and badass events on the planet.
Saturday at 2pm in Las Vegas cannot come soon enough. Here at TMHQ, we have spent the last 12 months planning what we feel is the best WTM course to date. With year 5 of WTM upon us, we were able to take all of the learnings from the first 4 events, and create the most challenging and well-rounded event you have seen to date. This course will test every facet of the competitors skill set, both mental and physical.
Ever since wrapping up in Wisconsin, BQ and the Best Friends Gang have been hard at work setting up Tough Mudder Michigan.
Since we’re the best in the biz, you may ask yourself how the Best Friends Gang handles the task of packing so much nonsense and badassery into one innocent piece of land.
Alright, Michigan. Here’s your answer, in chronological order.
It’s the morning after Tough Mudder. Whether you’re a Mudderling or a mega-Mudder, you’re likely experiencing fatigue and muscle pain. It should be no surprise that taking on a dozen obstacle-riddled miles has left you with muscle, joint or even digestive inflammation. (Don’t tell us your stomach didn’t turn before Electroshock Therapy.)
A combination of hearsay and a $1 menu markup for “upgrading” has led many of us to believe that brown rice is healthier than its colorless counterpart. But given the myriad of money-making health hoaxes out there today, is brown rice actually healthier than white rice?
We’ve gone ahead and broke it down. But before we get started, let’s clarify some basics.
Before reading on, take a few seconds to think of your greatest fear. Feel the vulnerability. Experience the mental, or even physical, tension within. Done? Now congratulate yourself—you're completely normal.
Here at TMHQ, we think fear gets a bad rap. This year, instead of being paralyzed by your fears, let them motivate you. So as you begin your journey standing up to the great bully that is that four-lettered F word, here are some helpful hints to keep in mind:
Think finishing World's Toughest Mudder as a team is glory in itself? Indeed it is, but this year we've partnered with Cellucor to kick things up a notch - okay - 100,000 notches. If you and your team of 4+ complete 100 miles or more at WTM 2015, we're giving you $100,000.
Read on about Jason Rulo's journey through WTM 2014 and hear about the trials and tribulations of what is undoubtedly THE WORLD'S TOUGHEST COURSE.
Just like we did last week, this week, we’ll choose one motivating Mudder to receive two Tough Mudder entries at 50% off.
To be considered for this week’s prize, “Show Us Why You Mudder” by uploading your inspiring Mudder story and a photo of yourself to our Facebook page using #CelebrateMudders.
When he was a child, Rob Leboy remembers walking the neighborhood collecting cans with his grandfather, so they could afford to buy bread. The hardships Rob faced as a child weren’t just financial, however. Because of his low-income status, Rob was bullied at school, and throughout his youth, every day seemed like a struggle.
Now an adult, Rob’s number one goal is to make sure that his young daughter never has to experience the poverty and loneliness he felt in his youth.
Tough Mudder's 10-12 mile military-style obstacle course is about much more than overcoming on-course obstacles-- it's a chance for people around the world to test their fitness while bonding with friends and fellow Mudders and overcoming physical, mental and personal obstacles along the way.
With Global Mudder just days away, hundreds of our course builders are working around the clock (and the globe) to bring you the muddiest weekend in mud run history. This coming weekend, August 16 and 17, 60,000 Mudders will cover damn near one million miles of mud-caked terrain in five events spread across four countries and 19 time zones.
