Mud Run Obstacle Races

Mud Run Obstacle Course Races – Links reviewed Fall 2020. Originally derived from military boot camp protocol to get troops in shape. These races have been enhanced to include the mentality of special forces where the state of mind matters just as much as the physical condition of the individual. These races are often used by individuals to maintain a lifestyle of staying healthy and for individuals that are transitional going from a sedentary lifestyle to a more active one. Preparation for “obstacle course races” starts with moderate cardio. Preferably slow jogs to lose weight and gain muscle followed up by weight type training or “crossfit”. You can even take the whole philosophy to a higher level by working on one’s state of mind by way of improved time management, recognizing your environment as a “Henry David Thoreau” and taking on the attitude of special forces of “getting over being a sugar cookie” or “getting out of your comfort zone” to loosely paraphrase Joe Desena of Spartan Race fame. Read his book “Spartan Up”. These races are often done as teams thereby enhancing social interaction as well. If you are new to the concept it is well worth your time just to try one race. We guarantee you will be hooked !!
