    Sign up now!

    PM me (or anyone on the list) for the team (Turbo Snails) password.

    Round 2.

    We didn't get shocked enough last time. And there was no fire. So, we're going again in hopes for moar.

    This one is 15 miles from my house, so if you don't mind getting stacked like sardines, we can fit as many people as we need to. Alternatively, hotels here should be substantially cheaper than Vegas.

    Lol lessons learned from Vegas: don't attempt monkey bars until the path in front of you is completely clear.

    I'm slated for the mid Atlantic tough mudder in April.

    Perhaps we should have one super thread for 2013 tough mudders, spartan races etc.

    I for one appreciate you posting and trying to get ppl involved before the prices go up, I would be in for it if I was there in AZ, I am moving there in a few months so this one is to early, marking thread for next time or incase I get involved in something else and need some names to possibly have some other locals involved for the fun of it. :)

    Just got an email that says our start time is 11:20 AM Saturday. Is it true? That's much better than your 10am estimate, given temperatures in Phoenix this week. Make it warmer before I get there please!

    Don't treat it like a race, just take it slow and if you finish you win :) Nothing worth getting hurt over. That is how I have handled 5k's in the past.

    Like someone punching you in all you muscles while you let out an involuntary grunt due to your chest constricting under sudden muscle tension.

    Its not painful or anything bad, more mental.

    Sounds great! Tase me bro!!!! Strangely only thing I'm bothered by is the tight tunnels/pipes that are supposedly on every Tough Mudder course. The electric shock part excites me strange as that sounds.
