Running a Tough Mudder had always been one of my bigger life goals and it was truly a mountain peak moment when I finally got to do so!
You see, I had previously trained to run one and tore my acl shortly before it putting off my completion date indefinitely. I even called in to get a credit for the next one that I promised myself I would do. For fear of reinjury, I had somewhat let go of that dream.
When Bob Conlin and Ryan Heywood invited me to run my first Mudder with them, I knew there was no better team or support structure to make it to the top of this personal mountain.
To be quite honest, I was nervous and scared at the start line. I tried to hide it and take this challenge on fearlessly. However, it took a couple miles in to really catch my stride emotionally. Once I did, there is no turning back!
Besides each other's accountability pushing us past where we would normally stop, I got to know them on a whole new level. I met myself on a whole new level because of their partnership!
I knew I wouldn't ever be the same after those 12 miles and 20 something obstacles! It takes something to complete a challenge like that. I'm ever proud and grateful that I did.
I am one Tough Mudding mother f*er!
