One Tough Mudder

By Brian Rice

Team Honey Badger – CFS/CFE

Saturday, October 13th Bricks Off -Road Park Poplar Bluff, MO

Everyone knows how tough Crossfitters are  and here is our chance to represent at the  Tough Mudder in Poplar Bluff, MO this fall.  This hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle course was designed by British Special Forces and tests your all around strength, stamina, mental grit and most importantly, camaraderie, all things that we Crossfitters rock at!  As the leading company in the booming obstacle course industry, Tough Mudder has already challenged half a million inspiring participants worldwide and raised more than $2 Million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project.  But Tough Mudder is more than an event, it’s a way of thinking. By running a Tough Mudder challenge, you’ll unlock a true sense of accomplishment, have a great time, and discover camaraderie with your fellow participants and friends.

I (Brian Rice) am putting a team together for the Tough Mudder and am hoping that the gym can all join one team (Team Honey Badger) and represent to the fullest.  Jason Reaves, Troy Caron and HOA Team- A Few Drinks In have already taken the plunge and signed up and many more have expressed interest from the gym and CFE classes, so I anticipate that this team will grow to 15 to 20 people as the event gets closer.  I have selected the noon start time for our team which will give us plenty of time to get there from Springfield on race day. Prices go up as the event gets closer so don’t delay on signing up. There will be a post-party sponsored by Dos Equis so maybe the Most Interesting Man in the World will be there,  let’s keep our fingers crossed!
