|James falling asleep during tummy time|
I got a sweet message from my friend to advise me to register for Tough Mudder. You see, a group of us had been discussing this CRAZY event for over a year now and had talked about how we would like to try it out. It is billed as "Probably the Toughest Event on the Planet". I have been thinking about this event since they had started talking about it, trying to figure out if I could possibly pull it off.
In my younger days, I would have signed up in a heartbeat, but now I was staring at the text message and thinking to myself what in the world I was getting myself into. I've had my fair share of on the edge events... I've skied some pretty scary black diamonds (almost broke a few limbs from total wipeouts) , jumped off a ski lift, jumped out of an airplane, driven across Canada, mountain biked some scary terrain and fallen off many times. So, what is holding me back? To tell you the truth, the promo video on the website freaked me out. Maybe it's because I have kids now, or maybe its just my old age. In the end I caved to the pressure from my pals and registered. How bad can it be? I've given birth to 2 kids and one was without any drugs ? Anyone else want to join us?
