I’m finding that more and more of my friends, from all walks of life, young(er) and old(er), near and far, are signing on for Tough Mudders, Warrior Dashes, Spartan Races, or whatever they can find thats dirty, dangerous and exhausting! Whatever happened to good clean 5k’s and tris?
Call it curiosity. Call it peer pressure. Call it the desire to challenge this 44 year old body with something I’ve never done before. Call it whatever you like! I’m officially starting my training now for various races coming up in the fall and early-mid 2012. I haven’t decided on a particular event quite yet, but consider this my formal notice that I’m officially tossing my hat into the ring. So bring on the mud. Bring on the fire. Bring on the tires, the ropes, the barbed wire. Bring on the sore muscles, the sweat, and hopefully not too much blood! As Tony Horton says, just “Bring It!”
Over the next day or two I’ll be posting various articles related to my training, including my training schedule, event specific work I plan to do to get my body ready for this new experience, nutrition tips, and even tips on apparel as I learn more myself. So stay tune and keep checking back to www.teamFITextreme.com.
