    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    I was thinking about doing one in October but I think it may have to wait until next year.

    My learning to accurately shoot skeet the first few weeks ... now, that was one "tough mudder."

    Never heard of Tough Mudders. Grew up with cross-country running, triathlons (once those gained steam). These "mudders" sound like a real challenge, like a lot of fun.

    I took a "sporting clay" lesson last week. It takes skeet to a whole new level!

    Mulle46 - I've never heard of "Tough Mudding" until this thread. It does sound like fun - however, I'm just old enough to know better than to try it now. 'Hope you have a blast!

    My sister did one last year with 3 other ladies from her sunday school class. She had a blast, but it kicked her rear-end too(her words).

    Pardon my ignorance but just what is a mudder, to me it means I need to switch from 2-wheel drive to 4-wheel drive to get to the fishing hole.
