It’s good to be back! I’m feeling refreshed after taking some time off following a very busy, challenge-filled December. Our new schedule will begin next week…starting with a fresh newsletter for all subscribers.
2011 was an incredible year…
I ran two Tough Mudder events with some great friends, worked with the amazing ABF team and ran the ABF 10K Mud Run, finished my first (of many) GORUCK Challenges, and completed one full lap in the inaugural World’s Toughest Mudder. I also launched this site back in September and in just a few months, I’ve met some of the most wonderful, unique, and maniacal people around. Most importantly, my beautiful wife gave birth to Cecily, our little bundle of awesomeness!
Yep, 2011 was a definitely a banner year full of so many highs and some pits and falls as well. I reached some goals and failed at others, but that’s okay because now I have things to work on for the new year. To get things off on the right foot, I’d like to share with you some of my goals for 2012, beginning with my schedule of running at least one mud run event or challenge per month.
Here’s what I’m gearing up for so far in 2012:
Jan 21 – Personal half-marathon with weighted ruck (Rt. 35 Mantoloking, NJ – Seaside Heights, NJ and back.) March 31 – ABF 10K Mud Run, NJ April 14 – Rebel Race, NJ May 6 – Tough Mudder, VT

What do you think? Know of any east coast events that look good for February? Any events here that you’re interested in doing? What’s your mud running schedule looking like for 2012?
As always, wishing you the best! Thanks for your patience while I was away and I especially thank you for all your support and commitment to the mud running movement. I hope to bring you the best there is to offer on mud run training, tips, reviews, events, gear, grub and more for the new year!
Stay tuned and keep mudding!
