Aim2Walk Got TOUGH!

Pre-Tough Mudder: not yet sore, not yet tired, not yet electrocuted

Pre-Tough Mudder: not yet sore, not yet tired, not yet electrocuted

So JP completed the Tough Mudder on Saturday with me tagging along. It was a true team effort as we certainly couldn’t have done it without the help of our 12-person team or the dozens of participants that helped push/pull/drag many of us through some of the wicked obstacles.

We both came away bruised, battered and beer-thirsty…and better for it. It was a well run and extremely well attended event on the frigid, muddy slopes of Mount St. Louis Moonstone.

We also came away with a great idea: Next year, the entire Aim2Walk team will participate…all the therapists, all the admin staff and anyone else that wants to join in on the, um, fun.

I can’t think of a better team building activity than completing this brutal test of strength, endurance, and wits (meaning, if you’re really smart, you won’t put yourself through this), with the help of your colleagues and co-workers.

For myself, this was my most challenging physical achievement to date. And that’s saying a lot, considering I’m the 5th of 7 children and endured countless little brother beat-downs, and I’ve been in the room for all 3 of my kids’ births…both tremendous physical accomplishments 😉

Please comment below if you attended this weekend’s event and share your experiences.
