I completed my first Tough Mudder Endurance Event which was one of the hardest physical things I have ever done. It is a half marathon with 21 obstacles such the Arctic Enema, Everest and the Block Ness Monster. We completed it to raise money for the Lewis Moody Foundation which is a Brain Tumour Charity.
To complete a Tough Mudder you have to work as a team, the strength of one person is nothing compared to the power of a team. Tough Mudder’s full lineup of team-oriented obstacles guarantees that you’ll cross the finish line with more friends than you started with. Whether it’s through a helping hand or an extra vote of confidence, my fellow team Mudders were with me every step of the way.
I was in a team of six friends and without their help and encouragement I honestly don’t think I would have completed the course!
The hardest part for me was running up the hills however I found doing all the obstacles really enjoyable. I had two epic fails on trying to reach the top of Everest but finally on my third attempt I managed to grasp my teammates hands and they pulled me up and over the top.
The hardest obstacle for me was the Arctic Enema where you have to slide down a tube into a skip full freezing cold water then submerge yourself again and swim under a central wall to the other side which is filled with iced water and ice cubes!
I’m really glad that I did the event and feel proud to have completed it with a group of friends. So far we have raised nearly £1400 for the charity!
