The crew (below, from 2014, after the "Walk The Plank" obstacle) is undecided. But I'm sure when we get those e-mails from Mudder a few months before race-day with discounted entry fees, that itch might come around again.
JB: Thanks so much for walking us through this. Anything you'd like to add before we wrap this up?
BS: The only thing I would say to anyone reading this (or hearing about races like Mudder) is to not assume it is impossible. Your gender, age or overall physical composition shouldn't matter. People all across the spectrum do this thing. If it even intrigues you a bit - I say go for it. If a bunch of unathletic guys like us can tackle it, so can you. Get yourself in shape, get some friends together and register. It's totally worth it.
JB: Well, I freely admit that I'm not going to be one of those signing up but I'm very glad we had this conversation. I learned a lot. Thanks for sharing your story with us, Brad. I can't wait to see if you're able to resist the lure of Tough Mudder 2015!
