Thanks to everyone who Tweeted me luck for Saturday’s Tough Mudder Mid-Atlantic endurance mud race! It was a filthy, fantastic time, complete with downpour and tornado warning.
Me and @MattyDTX at the starting line.
They just announced another Maryland race for April 20-21, 2013. You’re all invited to join me! Depending on which NHL teams make the playoffs, I promise to do the 10+ miles and 20+ obstacles in some kind of hockey gear. Team Mikey Mondays? Team Nealmobile? More like Team Landeskoging, since there is plenty of falling down.
More photos here.
Seriously, think about it! Check out www.toughmudder.com. Mostly you need the ability to comfortably run 5 miles and some tall guy teammates to give you a boost over 12-foot walls. The rest is just grit and fun. Intern Jeff Skinner takes photos and carries Capri Sun emergency rations. You know you want to!
