What got you started: In 2010, a friend saw an appealing ad from an upstart company called Tough Mudder. They use a slogan that played perfectly to our insanity: “The toughest event on the planet.” My friend had completed 4 Iron Man competitions in addition to doing the Alcatraz swim. He knew all about my military background and asked if I would do it with him. I became hooked immediately.
