Things to Consider Before Entering A Tough Mudder

Two weeks ago John completed another Tough Mudder race. He loved it. However, I feel it is my duty, as his wife, to warn any potential Tough Mudders of some of the after effects of the challenge.

Inevitably, it has been one of the reasons we do a lot of laundry…John in the mud

It was also the entire reason his foot was swollen up black and blue and he couldn’t walk normal for a week  (it wasn’t broken he had it checked)…Electro shock therapy

And most recently, it has turned into the reason Jane refuses to let me cut her hair…Jane with bangs in her eyes

“But, I no wanna mohawk!” she cries, sad Jane

So, if you are thinking about entering a Tough Mudder, get a bucket ready for those muddy clothes, try to avoid kicking walls and please, for the sake of their vision, trim your kids bangs before the big day!

    I’m with Jane. I don’t like the Mohawk either! I hope it was just a testosterone mudder moment.

    Why a Mohawk I saw that all had it?

  3. John says:

    It’s a tough mudder thing. They even have people on-site before the race that starts that will give you your mudder mohawk. Oh, and because it’s awesome!

    I guess there are different Tough Mudder traditions. Son #2 has very curly shoulder length hair … needless to say, after the TM, it was caked in mud. Crazy people.
