Missing Bits and the SoCal Tough Mudder Aftermath
From the Tough Mudder website: "5/30: Tough Mudder SoCal 2011 will go down in Mudder Lore. Saturday (photos) was picture-perfect with blue skies and optimal conditions to run the very challenging course. 87% finished. Sunday (photos) was the evil step-sister, with average temps of 35 degrees Fahrenheit at the base and 60 mph gusts of wind chill bringing temps below... 10 degrees at the summit. Job well done to the 63% who finished."
Someone's comment on Facebook:
I was there n had to be taken down on mile 8 and treated with severe hypothermia but what I see inside the clinic was worst..lots of cuts and broken limbs but majority is hypothermia..it's all good I am one 'em toughmudders out there..
I commented on Facebook as well.
Jon Danniells for some reason at the "Chernobyl Jacuzzi" I stepped in like I was getting into a regular Jacuzzi, of course there was no step. So I go crashing in, totally disoriented, somehow managed to scramble out. Set the tone for the rest of the race. Managed to go off course twice, attempted every obstacle, quickly feel off monkey bars, couldn't feel my hands, half-way across ball shrinker before falling in, was in 9 am group, came in 3 hours 10 minutes later. Had a blast, glad its over, can't wait til the next one
