Half marathon?!?!?!?  That is awesome Juice!

Make sure you do the mileage homework and you will do great!  Make sure to vaseline all the tender bits before a long run-and dont wear cotton, use a dry-fit something or other type of fabric.

I am so excited for you :livid:

Thanks!! LOL @ 'tender bits'. I have one or 2 of the super special shirts that wick away moisture - should probably pick up some more!! And today my friend was all like 'I'm turning 26 this year so I'm going to train for a full marathon too to celebrate. You should join me!'

 

My response: '... ... ...' 

 

And I also think I was mixing up Tough Mudder with the regular Mud Run. Yeah. NOT up for being shocked by wires and all that craziness! You are insane! :D (but I'll still need to see pics)

Fab running plans. I love running through the woods! I did a tough guy a few years ago - I think its like your Tough mudder thing as its all about the assault course and lots and lots of mud! It was great and I am dying to do another one, I just need a chum to do it with. Shame you aren't over here. Last time was with 25 blokes and me. Ended up running it mostly on my own. I am so much fitter than I was then too.

Doing it solo is definitely more challenging, but it is surprising how many strangers become mates when the going gets tough!  I hope you get the chance to do another one if that is what you want to do.  If we were closer I would be your wingman!  My wife thinks I'm absolutely bonkers for it, but she understands the drive -  She is doing her own challenge under the name aimless, and is rocking it!

Yes I certainly made one friend; after jumping off a 5 meter burning hay stack into a muddle lake and swimming round pushing a log, I got out to find I had a fish in my bra! Was so stunned I had to stop the nearest girl to me and share. She and I did the next couple of obstacles together after that bonding moment :)

LOL!!! Yeah that would be a moment to remember.

 

Art I love your pics, esp. the one of you covered from head to toe. So fun!! I have a friend in Orlando that wants me to do the color run with her - might check it out.

WOW, I'm glad I didn't end up with a fish in my underpants!!  I ended up running along with a tough lady wearing a dress and sash for what looked to be a beauty pageant!!  See the photo below:

I am somewhere in the water behind her.  She never quit moving!
