    Spartan Race and Tough Mudder

    Anyone interested in forming teams for one or both of these races? Spartan Race is on the 3rd and 4th of August in Washougal, WA.
    The Tough Mudder is on the 5th and 6th of October in Black Diamond, WA.
    I'm not in the best shape, but it is one a hell of a motivator to get out there and get in better shape. It looks kinda fun too.

    I was already considering the Mudder.

    I'M IN!

    I might be vacationing in a sandbox during the Tough Mudder, but don't know for sure yet. Anyone down for the Spartan Race? I've never done anything like this before. Do team members normally train together? I understand different schedules and locations, maybe get together once or twice a week? Other than crossfit, I wouldn't know the first thing about getting in shape for one of these races.

    Run trails with mud, roots, puddles, rocks and trees on them. . .. . do pullups, push ups and core strengthening . . . .
    For the Mudder, be able to run 5-6 miles at a good pace and not be dead afterwards. . .that is what I did for the Mudder last year, worked well for me. . .
    A couple of guys that ran in WI last May with me had just been running on the treadmill for a couple of months. .. they were hurting big time .. gotta "chase the Dog" on the trails to build up the balance and footing .. .
