How Tough Mudder Saved my Life

Started by mudshark18 on September 12, 2014 in Stories

18, struggling with anxiety, I signed up for TM, the competitive daredevil in me intrigued by the Toughest Event on the Planet. I apprehensively stood at the start line. As I came to Berlin Wall that I was short for people gave me a hand (shoulder). I learned the meaning of camaraderie (Mud Mile). I finished & as i wore my orange headband I was soaring. TM awakened a hunger in me & put a sparkle in my eye & for that I am truly grateful. I will be in Michigan in 8 days!

    A little story about me. I was a salesman of office equipment such as Panasonic Fax Machine, Panaboard, and Panasonic PABX in Indonesia.

    I love wrestling, Karate and Boxing. Even though my dream is to become an Running athlete

    Good for you! I am looking forward to get into the event myself. But first I need to buy cheap essay for my study and then I will be free for the TM!
