Looks and sounds fun...tho how masochistic that may sound...but it is ment to be something tough physicaly and mentaly to push self through and have some fun doing it...

I eventually want to do one..although long distance running isn't really my thing, I prefer sprinting short distances.

Yes, I did one last year in Kentucky. Doing another this Saturday in Georgia. I can't wait I'm pumped.

As far as running its a little easier than you might think because you are not running 10-12 miles without stopping due to the obstacles and wait times to do the obstacles. Plus if you get too tired you can always walk!

If you can train yourself to run 3+ miles without stopping they say you should be good to go. But don't forget about your upper body strength too! That's important.

Well your shoes will be...muddy. They say not to go out and buy brand new shoes, unless you have the money for that of course because your shoes will be scrap by the end. However, last time it took me a very long time to clean my shoes and I was able to reuse them albeit they were already very old and rundown shoes to begin with...not a good idea to have bad shoes without some cushion.
