For this event we've chosen the Wounded Warrior Project as our charity, because only a course this tough gives us a tiny ability to live vicariously through our service-men and women. As we've seen our fellow Americans step forward to do the impossible job of keeping our country free, protecting our families, and giving so much of themselves, we felt compelled to answer the call of making the transition home for them, a better one.
The Wounded Warrior Project does an amazing job of helping service members recover and transition back into civilian life.
Not entirely sure what we're thinking when signing up for this event. Sure, last year we jumped out of a plane, but once you're out the door, gravity (and your tandem instructor) does the rest. This is a whole different ball of wax. You've gotta watch the video on their website to get a real idea of what this is all about.
The Tough Mudder boasts "hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie." Now, we can't adequately describe all four of our current physical fitness status with a single word or phrase, but suffice to say we have some work to do before September.
Once September comes, we're doing this thing whether or not the aforementioned have spent their time wisely training for the course, or vegging out on the couch for the previous eight months.
We welcome any involvement you're able to muster. Form a team of your own, or enter as an individual. Either way, you can help push, pull, and kick us over the finish line. Maybe you want to volunteer to help at the course. Cool. You can also purchase a spectator ticket, and snap some awesome candid shots of us hurling on the sidelines, bawling in the fetal position ten yards from the starting gate, or the crème de la crème, the shot of three of us carrying numero four across the finish line. We'd love to see you there!
