This story is fantastic. I teared up towards the end - I am making it one of my goals to have determination like that. Good on you!

Amazing job. 👊

Thanks for sharing, you have inspired me. I am registered for the Carolina's Spartan Beast (same idea, a couple miles longer) next week and I was starting to get worried. I will think of you every time I start having doubts on the course.

Do you think you will do it again next year?

I am so incredibly impressed right now! I think I might set this as one of my goals!!!

by one of my goals, I mean one of my ultimate far off bucket list kind of goals.

Do you think you will do it again next year?

Yes. My team is signing up again for June or July in Lake Tahoe. I'm super excited.

Congratulations! You are AWESOME :)

Great job-the electrical wires are what scares me the most from doing this event-EVER.
October 8, 2012 10:57 AM
Congratulations! Very awesome of you!

You're awesome! Thank you for sharing your story, you should be so proud!!!
October 8, 2012 11:01 AM
I love your story! Thanks for sharing. Be VERY proud!! :)
October 8, 2012 11:01 AM
That is so Awesome!!! I am in awe of you! I like to run but I am SCARED to death of those things!
October 8, 2012 11:05 AM
GOOD FOR YOU!! My husband has convinced me to sign up with him for the one in Chicago in May of next year. And I am scared to death/excited if that makes any sense?!

I've already pre-registered for 2013 in the hopes of doing more than one. (I'm hoping to do one with my honey and one with a cousin) and I'm giving myself a year to prepare and get badass. Not that I'm not badass now, but I want to be able to do a pull up.

This story got me SO psyched for it and so ready, I wish I could go do it now!! :)

OMG, what an inspiration. Reading that gave me a lump in my throat, that boiling water feeling in my belly and I started to tear up. I know how you felt when you wanted to give in and that Marine that gave you that last push that you needed, made my intense feeling of "military family" (i'm a navy wife) surge, giving me goosebumps. What an amazing experience you should be OVERLY proud of yourself! GREAT WORK!

Outside magazine has a great article on the Tough Mudder/other mud runs. The full article is in the November issue.

You are an inspiration! The tough mudder is on my bucket list. I will start out on a much smaller scale doing the mudathon, but I can't wait to accomplish this feat. Congratulations to you! Seriously amazing journey.
October 8, 2012 11:19 AM
WOW!! super awesome!!!
October 8, 2012 11:19 AM
Girl you are way more awesome than I can even pretend to be!! My friends and I were just talking about doing a Tough Mudder yesterday, since I think it was going on this weekend here. We all agreed we probably needed to take baby steps and do a smaller, shorter one first, but you're definitely an inspiration!! Maybe next year I'll finally work up the nerve (and the upper body strength) to do a Tough Mudder too smile
October 8, 2012 11:21 AM
kudos to you! well done and congratulations, you must be very proud of yourself.
October 8, 2012 11:21 AM
Amazing account. I've always thought that the people I meet on the course at these events are the reason I keep doing them. It's amazing how a total stranger can say the right thing at the right time to make you keep going.
October 8, 2012 11:21 AM
Wow girl!!! Congrats, I've been wanting to do it but i am afraid. Btw, love the picture
