The sun shone, and boy oh boy did 12 miles feel like a challenge at the start BUT I bloody did it, and now I feel like superwoman!
This weekend has been full of challenges. Those things that make your tummy do a few somersaults and want to run and pee, but I'm really really proud of myself for facing both challenges head on, despite all the nerves.
Today was exactly as described... Tough and muddy, and I loved every second of it. It's the friendliest event I've ever done and I can't thank @samsunguk enough for getting me involved. I'd urge anyone thinking of doing a @tough_mudder to bite the bullet and go for it as it really was a rewarding and enjoyable experience!
My top tips 👉🏻 stick with friends, it's all about the group mentality not what time you get. Wear trainers with good grip and that stay on in thick boggy mud. Leave your ego at the door and just get yourself down and dirty. Bring baby wipes, hand sanitiser and a change of clothes for afterwards. And most importantly just enjoy it and see each challenge or obstacle as a small hurdle to overcome!
I shot all my photos from the day on the amazing new Samsung S8 (the camera is epic and is looks like professional camera quality) and wore the new Samsung Gear Fit2 to track the race which was useful to see my overall stats from the race!
I'm now ready to de-muddify myself, put a film on and not move for the rest of the day! Peace out ✌🏻#DoWhatYouCant #ToughMudder #Challenge #Ad
