That Time I Ran Through Fire – My Tough Mudder Experiences

A few words on that time I paid money to debase myself. It was a lot of fun! 😀

Mudder of Dragons

Sometimes I leave my house for purposes other than work, groceries, or the movies. This was one of those times. 

Twice, I have run Tough Mudder obstacle courses.

      Ha ha, thank you! I used to entertain the fantasy of doing a course dressed as Danaerys, but I’m sure I’d wind up tangled up in a bush or something.
      You should consider signing up for one, you might surprise yourself! 🙂
