    So, who else is on these forums joining the event this coming weekend. Anyone else on another state can post too. I am curious as to who likes these types of events.

    I am on this coming Saturday the 11th at 9:00 A.M.

    I have wanted to do one of these events, but never seem to be available at the time they are held. I have some friends that have done them before, they say they are a blast to do, but are very grueling. I would imaging that would vary from event to event though. Good luck & let us know your thoughts after the event is over.

    Well, I'm booked up for next year in London (I've finally discovered them in the UK) as I can't make the date this year but I've already entered for the Warrior Dash event in London this year. That is short enough to be fun. The Tough Mudder is a whole different kettle of fish in that regards.

    Good luck here4something, I hope you enjoy yourself and come through unscathed (especially in the opening open water swim start).

    Thanks all for the comments. I did this event last year here in Georgia, but I was about 150 meters from completing. My knees had given up on me because the pain was too much and I could not move anymore. This year I conquered it!

    I will say that this year's the temperature was torture. Not only did we have 35mph winds against our bodies with low 30 degrees while wet, we had to go through water and mud with ice in it.

    I lost touch on my hands at the 5th mile and I thought I would lose them. My body was in constant shock.

    I am pondering if I want to do this event while it is this cold here for next year. I have a lot of resistance to high temperatures and much rather do this while it is hot on another state. I get to travel while at it as well.

    They are fun indeed. Many help each other, which is great.

    Well, I survived! Lol

    Well, if I change my mind for next year I'll gladly join you!

    The consistent up and down through hills and such is what can get to you on it.

    My only rant about the event is the pebbles getting in your shoes, grinding away as you move. :mad:
