Tough Mudder Los Angeles is taking place on Saturday, March 29th, 2014 at the Glen Helen Raceway near San Bernardino. A bunch of people have already expressed interest in tackling what is called "the toughest event on earth." Each course is a little bit different but they generally are about ten miles in length and feature well over a dozen obstacles of varying levels of difficulty. I'm not going to sugarcoat it, Tough Mudder is not for the faint of heart. It is a long and arduous journey that takes several hours (five or more) to complete. That being said, I can speak for everyone who participated in 2012 in saying that it was an incredible experience that gave us all an opportunity to check out how our training can be applied outside of the gym.
