This year I ran Tough Mudder again and after last years post flew around the bloggersphere helping out many mudders on what to expect, I wanted to replicate it with something I felt hadn’t been done. So this year I asked my other half Kristy to write a guest post giving you guys a view of the day from within her ‘spectator shoes’… If you are going to be a spectator at an obstacle race this year, but not sure what to pack.

This year marked many firsts for me in relation to fitness, including attending my first ever BodyPower expo event in Birmingham’s NEC. Like many other fitness events, I have always considered going, however I have never gone through with the plans and committed myself.

I upped my running, making 5km runs 10km and adding in at least three sets of pull ups to each gym session. My first step in planning how to finish this run was to compare the course.
I have always wanted to do Tough Mudder but never thought I would be actually capable of completing the course. However somehow last week I found myself standing in the warm up pen ready to give it a go. A few days before my colleague Sam asked me if I would like to replace a guy who dropped out from their team. So naturally because of the adventurous person I am, within 48 hours I was on my way!
