On May 12, one of our own participated in the Tough Mudder up in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.  As the leading company in the booming obstacle course industry, Tough Mudder has already challenged half a million inspiring participants worldwide. She had to manage her way through 25 obstacles including trekking through knee-deep mud, sprinting through a field of live electric wires,  and jumping off a 15 foot plank into near-freezing water. She can now proudly say, however, that she is a Tough Mudder!  Congrats, Kelsey!

    Thanks! Despite all the hard work and training, it was actually a ton of fun! I’m looking into doing another one in October in NJ 🙂
