So I did a Tough Mudder last weekend! For those of you who don’t know what that is, it is described as “seriously gruelling” and “probably the toughest event on the planet” – a 12 mile hill, mud and obstacle course designed to drag you out of your comfort zone by testing your physical strength and stamina, and your mental determination and resilience. There have been over 200 events over 6 countries and the event was founded by a British former anti-terrorism agent (surprise, surprise). I just read a random stat that there are over 10,000 Tough Mudder tattoos, testament to it being both a badge of honour to be celebrated with pride and to its cult status among aficionados. I’m going to share a few of my thoughts on it, tell you why you should try one and give you a few training and course tips.
