Live Whatever You Do: Do NOT Bring These 3 Things to Tough Mudder Author: Tough Mudder October 21, 2019 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Prior to a Tough Mudder, Mudders are faced with a plethora of mind-boggling gear dilemmas. Glasses or contacts? T-shirt and shorts or compression gear? The Pippi Longstocking leggings or the ass-less chaps? Everyone’s preferences are different, and we respect that. However, there are three things in particular that you better not so much as dream about bringing to our course on event day, and it’s about time we remind you of them. Do Not Bring Your Ego At the finish line, you’ll get a headband, one that mops up everyone’s sweat just the same. Tough Mudder is not a race–it’s a team-oriented challenge to test your mental and physical grit in an environment that values camaraderie over course time. Finish one and you’ll understand why completing a Tough Mudder feels so good. Do Not Bring Your Negativity Get dumped via Tinder on the ride over? Lose your lucky t-shirt the night before? Poor you. While life does indeed royally suck sometimes, your perceived misfortunes shouldn’t give you a reason to be a (literal) stick in the mud on course and in life. Tough Mudder is a place to turn negatives into positives, not vice versa. Do Not Bring Your B-Game This goes for your C, D, and F-game too, wiseguy. Whether that means training hard in the weeks and months before or simply turning up on event day knowing in your mind you will try every single obstacle, bring the best of you to the course. And, keep in mind that every single Mudder, each of which will eventually need a helping hand, benefits from your A game attitude. Not booked your ticket yet? Get to it, the course is waiting for you.
