I can proudly say, "Yes, I am!"
Our entire team successfully completed the Tough Mudder!!
12 miles...28 obstacles (28 "official" obstacles...there were lots of "natural" obstacles along the way as well)...no serious injuries. Quite a successful day out :)
These were the instructions given for the event:
Step 1) Bring Your Signed Death Waiver
Step 2) Pick up Your Participant Packet
Step 3) Get your Face Marked
Step 4) Don’t Throw Up
All went perfectly until I got back home Sunday evening. As soon as I got in my door the waves of nausea washed over me. I spent the night emptying my digestive system. Was it an electrolyte imbalance as a result of 4 hours of grueling activity involving almost no food or water? Possibly. Was it something I ate on the trip home? Possibly. Was it the manure-and-who-knows-what-filled water that thousands of participants made their way through that I inadvertently swallowed several times? Possibly...probably.
So I spent yesterday sleeping off the night of purging. Tomorrow I pick up the rental van and make my way back to Brussels to pick up the family Thursday morning. I promise I'll post pictures from the event as soon as I have time. Of course, I'll also post pictures of the family visit.
