Just finished my 8th Tough Mudder last weekend, and noticed something.  As it race_705_photo_15993432turns out, training for a marathon helps your cardio.  Sure, that’s a “Captain Obvious” statement, but it did feel really nice to stomp the Tough Mudder LA course and run through the finish line looking for the next 5+ miles.  If you haven’t participated in a Tough Mudder, I highly recommend them.  Great challenge, teamwork, and a ton of fun.  Plus, they are a nice goal to turbo-charge your fitness routine.  Now the marathon training this week “post-mudder” was rough, because I destroyed my legs.  Hopefully tomorrow’s 20 goes alright.

Small steps add up!!!
