|Getting ready to start the race (I'm in pink)|
Tough Mudder Missouri was 11 miles long with 22 obstacles. Some of the obstacles are hard and some not so much. At least..not for somebody small like myself. Crawling under barbed wire and through tunnels wasn't much of an issues just because I'm so small. Trying to get over Berlin Walls, now that's another issue.
|You can see how big the logs were|
Another challenge or obstacle had us going up a hill that was very muddy and not very easy. Ok, there were a lot of these. This particular one I made it up with the help of one of the guys on my team and some others. Once at the top I turned around to see if the person behind me needed help and noticed a guy on his stomach helping his other teammates up. He was sliding forward. I rushed over, squated down, and grabbed his ankle to keep him from sliding off. He turned around to see who was holding his foot and thanked me. Then the guys I was with finished helping some others up and came over to help this guy. Once his team members were up and he stood up he thanked me again and said he felt himself slipping and then somebody grab his ankle and looked back and it was some itty bitty chick who couldn't weigh more than 100lbs and said that I really helped. Later the girl I was with said she was near him after that challenge and he was talking to his friend about it and was surprised by how strong I was. haha! That made me feel really good.
