I only managed to make it up half the hill before I had to walk it. It was just too steep. I did complete all the obstacles and managed to avoid the water on Twinkle Toes, Funky Monkey and the rings. Lines were minimal except for a few. I somehow managed to avoid the 10k volt wire on Electroshock Therapy. That was the one obstacle that I really thought hard about. That wire hurts. In all it was a lot of fun. There were 10 of us and most of us agreed that it was harder than the Tri State.

    TM is a blast. My wife and I competed and completed it last fall here in VA. I was mighty proud of my wife.

    I'd imagine the KY course terrain will be similar or maybe even more difficult than Pocono so I'd look into a decent pair of trail runners...not something from Kohl's that's for sure. I wish I had at least thrown my Superfeet insoles into my shoes. The loose rocks were a real PITA.

    Good (preferably old) running or trail shoes. I duct-taped mine on....I highly recommend that. Oh, and wear socks that won't slide down under your foot.....that really sucked.

    Headed up to tough mudder CO this afternoon. 0940 start time in the morning. Am strangely calm about the whole deal. Don't know If that is due to confidence or ignorance. Wish me luck!

    Good luck TagSandwich! post pics when you can. Reading all these post is pumping me up! I was training for TM for 4 months and then tore my shoulder and had 5 anchors put in. I have one more PT appointment before I'm free to train again. Therapist advised me not to push it for a year due to how severe the tear was and location. Planning on TM somertime in 2013, any training tips?

    Really on the fence about running the October 20th one here in Maysville KY. I'll turn 41 October 28th, so not sure how many days or weeks I'll be down after it, if I run it. I'm in well above average shape for my age, but running is not my strong point. Do lots of crossfit type workouts and weight train 3-4 days a week. Just don't want to be so down and out that I can't be ready to hunt starting the first week of November.

    Sorry, guys, havn't been able to get to an update until now. So, it WAS AWESOME! I'm hooked, will definitely be doing TM CO again, and looking around for other locations to possibly travel to so I can experience other courses. What was billed as a 10 mile course turned out to be 12. Nice little mental obstacle thrown at us on run day, after about mile two, we heard rumors of the longer course. Also added some obstacles and variations. With the climbing, and elevation, there were alot of people walking sections (including me). However, I had done quite a bit of running to prep, so the distance/endurance side never really challenged me all that bad. We had a guy on our team that is an absolute hulk of a man (6'5"/265 lean #'s), dominated the obstacles, but struggled on the running/endurance. We walked and waited on him a lot. Course time was an unimpressive 4h40m, but we finished as a team and that was more important.

    Scrapejuice, I would do it. You will be fine if you are in above-average shape. Lots of people doing it in all shapes, sizes and fitness levels. The run/endurance part is only as intense as you want to make it. I'll post pics once I 've had time to upload.

    On being down for days or weeks after, the day after I was a little sore all over, but not a lot sore anywhere. A few bruises and scrapes, but generally injury free. Was fine by Monday (ran Saturday). Next year, thinking about running both days. Saturday with a team, Sunday on my own. I'm approaching 38, not far behind you 'juice.

    I have the same problem. I am traveling 4 hours with my wife and kids to do the tough mudder by myself this weekend. Would be a lot more fun with some people I knew.
