Yeah! Tough Mudder was a huge success! We had a blast! It was much better than the last time, too. The weather was perfect, overall I was in much better shape so I ran most of the time. My left calf started cramping at the half way point, unfortunately so the second half was slightly more challenging than it would have been with two non-cramped calves. I wasn't even tired or sore afterwards, however, the right side of my groin started acting up but it wasn't a big deal.
If you didn't know, six of us made a 8.5 hour drive down to Augusta, Georgia where our hotel was. The even was about an hour West of that location in Washington, Georgia. We woke up at 6am and started at 9:40. Took about 3.5 hours to complete.
All the obstacles were so much fun...even getting shocked by Electric Eel and Electro shock Therapy. Arctic Enema wasn't even that bad! Other obstacles jumping over fire into 9 or so feet of muddy water. Crawling through lots of mud under barb wire. Crawling through water with our backs towards the ground and a cage above us so we glided through without touching the bottom in the cold water. Mud mile was a touch one though because the water was so cold...it wasn't an actual mile though but we had to climb over a bunch of hills repeatedly and then go back into pools of cold, muddy water. They should have called that one the ball-shrinker! And then there was Everest where you had to run up a slope and then have people help you up. There were a bunch of other obstacles too that were a lot of fun and then just running through the forest getting all muddy and dirty was a blast.
If anyone is looking for a physical and mental challenge I would highly recommend this event, its a lot of fun!
In case you are wondering what is going on with my life right now...
I'm currently in my last semester of school...forever! Masters degree from Criminal Justice. I'm writing my thesis on Juvenile Delinquency and how negative influences lead to delinquency, pulling heavily from criminological theories I have studied so far. Anyway, that is due late April...it is now mid-February so I should get started on that.
I'm also making pizzas, part time and delivering the school's newspaper every Wednesday which brings in a little extra cash. I have yet to get paid for delivering the papers though! Grr...
So between working out, going to work and working on school work I've been keeping myself quite busy. Life is all about work, huh? Not bad, in my opinion. I've been trying to look on the positive side of everything lately, and I like it, it has made me a happier person. Abraham Lincoln once said that our lives are only as happy as our minds make them to be. Not sure if that is the exact quote but it goes like that. Basically what he is saying is that if we look at the world negatively, we will be a negative and unhappy person. Vice versa for being positive! So yes, my life does involve a lot of work, but I'm happy that I have a job, happy that I am in school and happy that I have the health and strength to work out!
Can't say I really play video games all that much anymore. I have been playing a little bit of Call of Duty multi-player here and there for a few matches but then getting tired of it. Haha I can remember not too long ago, last semester when I could play video games and sit in front of the TV for a lot longer than that! Not sure what changed but I can't do that anymore.
Thank you to everyone who commented. Below are your results! The more I know you, the more detailed your results will be.
Evanscense- You seem to be a nice guy. Your quick-wit and ability to counter my post that other day with an extra smiley face amused me.
Shibby- You are a very cool, laid back guy. You seem to be quite carefree and very chill and it would be a pleasure to hang out with you. You also appear to be someone who doesn't need to have the latest thing and be updated on the latest thing and still be quite happy. I can appreciate character traits like that. I'm sure I would enjoy your company along with the great stories we would share. Keep being chill!
Greendaysucks136- You're username reminds me of annoying 12-year old boy who can't form an opinion of his (or her? I don't know) own. Green Day is a solid band and the only reason why don't like them is because you will never, ever be even 1-millionth as awesome as they are. Because you are worthless.
Latiosmaster47- Back in the day when we used to play Halo all the time I always wished you would have shut the **** up more often. Your girly voice always annoyed the hell out of me along with your lame attempts at jokes. Now that you are in law school? Ha! Good joke! What you think you could actually be a good lawyer? What are you going to do, pretend you are the dude in your avatar Phoenix something or whatever. Well guess what the real world isn't a video game. Being a lawyer takes a lot of work and long nights which suck. Just like you because you are stupid.
latios_power- I never liked anyone with the name "latios" in their username. Hence my hatred towards Latiosmaster47. Therefore I think you suck and I hate you. Plus your avatar annoys me. You remind me of a stuck up hipster who thinks the world revolves around themselves. Well guess what! It doesn't!
Petray- Your ability to drink excessive amounts of alcohol and party like there is no tomorrow has always amazed me. Like seriously? When are you going to grow up and realize there IS a tomorrow? What are you? Two years old? Get a life and realize there is more to this world than having friends and drinking a lot of alcohol you selfish ****-bag.
