Lizzy and Olivia Conquer the "Tough Mudder!"

Earlier this summer, I didn't even know that much about the "Tough  Mudder" other than that it's a hardcore event that some of the guys in our department have done!  So, after Olivia and Lizzy did it this month, and sent me a picture at the end with all smiles, I knew I had to do a little research.  Here is the description of it:

"Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. With the most innovative courses, half a million inspiring participants, and more than $3 million raised for the Wounded Warrior Project, Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world."

How about that!  Way to go, guys!!  I'm so proud of you.  Now, that makes our fitness test look like a stroll in the park with your grandparents!  (SO, that means absolutely NO complaining about bringing the timed mile back!)  :)

One more month of summer--enjoy doing whatever and however you define enjoyment!!
