Topic: And here we GO!

Hey everyone... Been a while, T-minus 22.5 hours for the TOUGH MUDDER!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkSU7SHE7Z4

Good video that shows each obstacle, of which I should be doing about 75% of, some are different at each event. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and that you will all have a Merry Christmas (or, in my case, Happy Hanukkah)!!!

Re: And here we GO!

Derin, R U KIDDING ME? OMG, you are one tough Mudder and so good looking too. I really think you should become our Poster Boy! It is so hard to believe that someone who had CC can do this. I am flabbergasted. It is that attitude that got you through the CC as before almost every task I heard you say, "it is perfectly doable". WOW! Have a very Happy Chanukah and may your life be as bright as the candles all shining on the Menorah. We are celebrating the lst night as 2 of the Grandkids are in College out of town until then. I am so in awe of you! Everyone should watch this video. BTW who was the videographer?

Hi Derin,

Wow!! That is one seriously tough event and course, to say the least!!!! You are indeed a tough mudder, Go Derin!!!!!! I saw a piece on the news here in Scotland over the summer and one of the obstacles people had to run through whilst wet and they would get electric shocks from hanging wires!!!

I hope that it goes well for you Derin and I am sure that you are tough enough  and have the right attitude required for it. Go Derin!

Good luck with it!!

Hi Derin,

That race looks CRAZY!! I would totally freak out in all that yucky mud. Have a great time. I think I called you Superman at one time, and the name still holds.

Good luck,
