Probably my favorite action shot from the Tough Mudder-Austin this year. I can’t run very fast, I can’t lift very much, and push-ups are a foreign concept, so finishing this run was very monumental for me. I hope the next time I attempt one of these intense obstacle courses I’m in better shape and my time is faster. I’d like to share this because I know it’s hard to get up and started, I know it’s hard to quit sodas and learn how to appreciate water, but your goals are never too out of reach. I’m not a size 6 arm-bearing dress-wearing dainty woman. I’m 5’5”, I weigh 180, and I am a Tough Mudder.
