Rugged Maniac



Your friends think you’re crazy and your loved ones are concerned for your safety, but something restless stirs deep down inside - you won’t be constrained by temperate society. You’d rather break than passively watch life pass you by and you ask, “How can I know myself without knowing my limits? Most shake their heads, content with vicarious existence, ignorant perhaps. Still, some hear you, and together you will gather. Your day draws near, glory impatiently waits.Soon you will have the right to declare,


“I am a Rugged Maniac!”


Oh, how excited we are for our event at Thunder Valley Motocross Park on October 15, and we know you are too! This course is going to be downright awesome. For starters, the track, in all of its rugged beauty, is home to innumerable natural obstacles: steeps, ponds, downed trees, rivers, ravines and some gnarly hills that will leave you gasping for air and begging for mercy. Then, of course, we’re adding obstacles, for which some of you will curse us and some of you will sing us sweet praise. The cursers will thank us in the end, because “Where can glory be found if not amidst cargo climbs and walls and barbed wire and fire?” Nowhere, that’s where!

This is from an email I got the other day. I'm so excited and as usual just a little nervous about it.It's October 15th. Come and join me.... Use this code “onlytherugged". It’s good for an $8 discount.

I'm doing an adventure race in October, too! Look at us rugged maniacs stepping out of our triathlon comfort zone :D

I thought of doing the Rugged Maniac but I think Tough Mudder was enough for this year :) Have fun!

That sounds like a lot of fun. Hey, did you go see the Pro Cycling Challenge today in Denver? I thought of you as I watched it on TV.

You found a Warrior Dash-esque race to do - how fabulous!!! Are either of your sons doing this with you?

I LOVE this!! a few of my friends are putting a team together so we can all do a Tough Mudder in 2013. They wanted to do next year but I need to get through a triathlon training season.. THEN that one.

I can't wait to hear all about this!
