Those of you who have followed my blog for a while may remember when I ran Hardcore Mudd Run last year. At that time I was still fairly new to obstacle racing, but since we have family close to the event site, I had accepted an invite to join a team lead by my husband’s cousin. I was anxious about running a race in the mountains (Florida is so flat it makes training for hills difficult), was uncertain as to the quality of this new race since some new races can struggle early on, but traveled to Pennsylvania excited for a new challenge.
And a challenge it was.
It took our team over five hours to complete the eight mile course. Yup, five. We climbed the slopes of the central Pennsylvania ski resort nine times, once with a sandbag! The obstacles were challenging, and many required the aid of teammates to be capable of completion. What’s more? It rained, no, poured for most of the event! We were cold, battered, bruised… and we finished that race feeling like warriors.
To date, this event tops my list as one of my favorite events. And I’m not alone, because Hardcore Mudd Run was voted as one of the top three obstacle races of 2012, second only to Spartan Race. This event made an impact, and plans to only get better!
I’m heading back to Pennsylvania to tackle Hardcore Mudd Run again this fall, and am thrilled to have a free entry to give away to one of their upcoming events!
