Tough Mudder. If you do not know what that is, not surprised, it has only been around for 2 years. It is a 12 mile obstacle course run with 20 – 30 military style obstacles essentially run through mud. The last few obstacles are electrified delivering near paralyzing shocks to those who touch the dangling wires hanging over the mud pit.
There is a pledge that the participants take before the run:
- I understand that Tough Mudder is not a race but a challenge.
- I put teamwork and camaraderie before my course time.
- I do not whine – kids whine.
- I help my fellow Mudders complete the course.
- I overcome all fears.
This Christian race is much like a Tough Mudder. The obstacles are put there either by the enemy, our bad choices, or the Lord. We cannot get through alone. We are not to complain but trust.
We are to daily run our course well.
