Tough Mudder St. Louis 2013: It must be something about the quality of the soil in the Midwest, but these middle of the country Tough Mudders always turn out the blackest, filthiest, muddiest mud I’ve ever seen. Checking the Missouri weather forecast in the week leading up to the event I was crapping my pants a little – temperatures were hovering around 100 degrees. Lucky for me (and the thousands of Tough Mudder participants) a cold front swept in on Friday and weekend temps stayed in the 70s – it was just perfect. I had my normal spate of cart trouble – my UTV broke down in the middle of the course on Saturday and a different one ran out of gas on Sunday. No matter, I’ve hiked my fair share of Mudders.
