The Tough Mudder obstacle course events have become very popular in a relatively short period of time, and they are attracting a wide variety of participants who strive to test themselves in a military style course designed by the British Special Forces.

"But Tough Mudder is more than an event, it’s a way of thinking," explains the event's website. "By running a Tough Mudder challenge, you’ll unlock a true sense of accomplishment, have a great time, and discover a camaraderie with your fellow participants that’s experienced all too rarely these days."

Edging the Xtreme recently caught up with Kelly Ross a mother of two, who holds down a full time job and firmly believes that when you're in your mid-40s, it's never to late to be a "Tough Mudder." She completed the event at Gunstock, NH.

Listen to me chat with Kelly, on Edging the Xtreme:

Boasting over 700,000 participants world-wide, Tough Mudder raises money for the "Wounded Worrier Project" and promotes team work, as the course is nearly impossible to do alone and requires teams to complete many of the obstacles. These events also follow the recent fitness craze beyond aerobics, yoga, weight training and Triathlons. These events promote attitude, fun, and total body fitness – they are not competitions.

The next up-coming Tough Mudder is at Mount Snow Resort in Vermont August 1and 2.
