Me? I looked at the videos of those Tough Mudder events and I think I'll stick to road racing. I just finished my first half marathon this morning. I was exhausted by the time I finished. (See my signature for how long it took me.) But I tell you this: I think running a half marathon is a piece of cake compared to doing a Tough Mudder.
My concerns about a Tough Mudder is that I think it is really easy to turn an ankle when you are slipping and sliding around in mud. Also, the electric-shock therapy portion of those events don't seem too user friendly, not to mention heart healthy.
But maybe you can do this and report back to us.

Seriously, isn't a half a marathon long enough?
