Down on the West Coast, They Love Their Mudders

A person never wants to admit when something they love is struggling or not quite as good as it used to be. Last year was a rough year for Tough Mudder.

Depression and My 2019 Season

In the past few years, fitness and being active has become so integrated into my everyday life that I honestly have a hard time remembering a time before it. I know that there was a time before it, but I'm hard-pressed to remember it. My family has a history of mental illness, from Bipolar Disorder … Continue reading Depression and My 2019 Season

And I Know What You Came Here To Do, Now Bust It Open Let Me See You Get Muddy

The weekend before this past one I completed 22+ miles at Central Florida. The course was over the normal ten miles and even though TMHQ said it was two laps, it wasn't really. The course just had a lot of cross over points and it was probably easier to just call it two laps.
