I have signed up for the Tough Mudder on September 29th in Barrie Ontario. This is a race where I have to set aside my desire to dash ahead and instead work with a team in order to complete the course.
It will be a nice change I think, not to be driven by speed, to not have to get the best time ever for the course. I’ll be able to run with some friends, take some pictures, do amazing things and feel a whole different feeling of satisfaction at the end.
So far the team consists of two ladies I met running at Run For Your Lives last year, a friend of theirs, my super fit massage therapist Sarah, hopefully my trainer and one of the girls from work and maybe a few others. I’m hoping to get a little more muscle in on the action for some of the more physical challenges where people will need a hand getting up and over something.
Just watching the video I’m made aware of some of the limitations I have, my shoulder has not responded well to things like monkey bars ever since I separated it back in 2006.
If you live in the Toronto area, or at least within driving distance of Barrie Ontario and are a regular reader and want to do something awesome this fall, like this:

I’m not necessarily trying to put together a group of Earths mightiest heroes, or even a Justice League, just some ambitious folks that want to do something that will put them to the test, people that are will to go all out and lay the cards on the table to see what they can do with the support of a great team.
