Who loves mud?

Mud + Racing is apparently all the rage these days. Muddy Buddy was this past weekend, and this INSANE Mudder race has been announced. Check it out:

The newly announced TOUGH MUDDER is pretty epic. It says on its website that it’s being launched because there is not a race in America that tests toughness, fitness, strength, stamina and mental grit all in one place and all in one day. Participants have to take this pledge:

As a Tough Mudder I pledge that…
* I understand that Tough Mudder is not a race but a challenge.
* I put teamwork and camaraderie before my course time.
* I do not whine – kids whine.
* I help my fellow Mudders complete the course.
* I overcome all fears.

Coming to Austin February 5 & 6, 2011. Coming to Denver (or within 2 hours of), Colorado also in early 2011.

Start training now. I feel like CrossFitters will love this one.

Training Run + Daily Mile

I’m sure you’re curious about things to do tonight, Tuesday. But Tuesdays are not for events. Except the Nike Human Race training run at Guero’s, which is an awesome event. Free tacos and drinks and friends and running routes, what more could you ask for?!

Well, perhaps an online community of runners? Daily Mile is a training website started by a cool local guy for logging workouts, talking about workouts, interacting with other runners, posting messages and encouragement, and more. It’s kind of amazing: a few weeks ago a friend pointed me to this site and there was a handful of users actively posting; now, it’s full of people talking, sharing, exploring, questioning, answering. It’s awesome! And it’s all from an Austin dude.

So no events. Go run. And then Rlog about it. Rog about it? Tlog about it? Trog about it? Training Log! Trog! Trog about it!
