The Tough Mudder is not only a tough race, its also a charity event that raises money for the Wounded Warrior Project. The Wounded Warrior Project is an organization whose purpose is as follows:
- To raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members.
- To help injured service members aid and assist each other.
- To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members
So, I'm currently training for a Highland Games at the end of April which basically means trying to throw heavy things without hurting myself. So far, so good. I've been running a three mile trail once a week simply to maintain my running ability, but will ramp that up after the Highland Games when I'll have seven more months before the Tough Mudder. If I can't increase my running distance by then, I should find a new profession.
